I know it's hard, even I sometimes find it impossible but when ever possible do something or occupy yourself. People tell me I should give up work and sometimes I feel I want to but to sit at home and watch day time TV would send me mad. Even though I find it harder everyday to get up and go in once I am there and meeting people and having a laugh I feel better and my RA even seems too get better. But if you can't go out to work, blog or face book or even take up a hobby and you will believe me feel better. It doesn't have to active just get the old gray matter working. Now that I have more time on my hands I found that I can do all those thing I wanted to do like write a book, whether I get it finished we will see. The mind is a powerful think it can block pain as well has tell you your body is in pain. So treat yourself, life's worth living so live it.
