the above should be a web site! It's how I feel at the moment. I was back with my ortho surgeonon Monday, and shocked to learn I will be in this boot cast mostly for another 3 months, and I thought he would be sending me back to work. What a surprise. I can cycle, but not walk too much, muffin tops here tostay I guess!
Have just completed an applic for disabled drivers badge, has to go to my GP next, I hope I get it. also, got form from state illness benefit this morn so have to drop that to my GP also to be completed, one big lng life of filling out forms!
I also have to do a tax return, and a health insurance return, I have just bundles of paperwork everywhere, am missing the facilities of a big company ie photocopier that do both sides, laser printers, fax machines, scanner, shredders. Tried to do some pho,to copying on the Spars copier And seriously it must have come out of the Ark! 20c a copy too!
Also, and I am venting now, and on a roll, my left ankle is so sore, my right wrist & my left knee, and my neck is stiff for a week! the surgeon did a good job on my arthrodesis of right ankle and that is just such a slow recovery process, bUt worth t I think. He wants an MRI of the left ankle and even tho it's not as bad, I innocently thought might be a lesser operation, he thinks will need same operation. I know damn right wrist needs to be fused too. luckily, I took out an income continuance policy at 18 years f age (well it's part of my pension) so will be applying for that as my work will only pay me til March and state benefit is quite low. Bet there will be a lotta lot of form filling to get them to cough up 2/3 income and pay my pension contrib, I am so sick of this miserable RA.
Yeah, also my work pals seem to be just that, as not in touch! Have yet to let boss know another three months and I'm guessing I ll be fit for work on the 12th, yeah you guessed the 12th of NEVER!!! Lol
Bloods early in morn, and I'm guessing since have decreased mtx to 15mgs frm 20mgs per week because of high Alt, bet my ESR, and CRP will be up.
Damaged jointsor liver damage mmmm which is worse. Maybe the Humira just not working anymore, as was predicted by many on here, they said it does happen. Well as you might surmise I am not in the best of form, and I didnt even mention my insomnia!
Hope I havnt been too awfl. Pls excuse typos as n iPad as wrist too sore for lapper.
Love ya fellow sufferers, Gina.
