Hi everyone I just thought I would ask everyone if they manage to work with there RA?
Before RA and Fibro I worked full time between 40-60 hours a week and somtimes more hours!
Now I still have the same job in admin as a planner however I struggle like crazy to manage 4 hours a day now and often have days off due to flares and Ive even had full months off work! I reckon I have had over 100 days off sick in a year, crazy considering before this illness I never had a single day off sick!
My rheumatologist offered to sign me off sick for life so that I didnt have the presure off work, but I told him no! I know I cant work everyday I know I must be a pain in the rear for my employers as they dont know when I will be in one day to the next! However I do know when I feel up to going in work it makes me feel loads better in my head its good to get out and socialise and going to work in a office full of work and madness make me feel like the old me for a few hours.
What do you do and how do you manage?
