Hi everyone, I know I don't post much but here goes .
I have RArth. And got a bad flare up about two weeks ago, the pain
Affected back of my thigh and calf and I can barely walk. It's painful
Went to Physio last week and will see her Again in morning. I know Depression
Is part and parcel of Arthritis, but even allowing for that , I feel so Depressed.
Felt the afternoon drag and went to bed for nap. My friends children phoned
Me and they are calling tomorrow and said they will help me tidy up some stuff.
They are two really great organisers. Part of me wants to be left alone as I
Have no energy or motivation right now.
I feel part of this is my own fault as I put others first and find it hard to
Ask for any help for myself. I have been feeling this way for about two weeks
And it's very hard.
I made a pact with myself that if I still feel this bad at end of week that
I will go to my Dr. He is great, but I guess I just feel a bit pathetic that I
Can't help myself. I just find myself suddenly crying for no particular
Reason, and I am so tired of putting on this mask.
I found this Forum over a year ago and it's been great, all the lovely
People and I don't know what I would do without it.
I know that all this is typical depression , but I think the hardest thing
For me is to accept that I even if your on Meds, it's easy to have a relapse,
And I think that scares me a bit.
Hoping you all had a nice weekend. Weather is meant to be sunny next week.
