I am Tanya I have Rheumatoid Arthritis for 5 years I have weekly injections of methotrexate injections and etanercept injections along with folic acid and naproxen. These help keep my flare up under control most of the time.
I am a complementary therapist so I am very interested in alternative methods in which to control my own pain and keep me working in a job I love very much.
I have two grown up children who are married with their little families. I try to keep my self as healthy as I can so I can enjoy my time with my five grandchildren. I do struggle some day's but I want to be in control and not RA in control of my life...... easy said than done some days.
I need to lose two stone so I am starting the 12 week plan; I know when I lose the weight again I will feel loads better. I have put on the weight after long course of steroid tables and injections. I found it hard to control my appetite when I am on steroids; I am off them now and have been for a while but needed motivation to lose weight. Now my flare up is giving me pain it has made me more determined to lose the extra weight. 😊
