As I read so many blogs from others I realise just how lucky I really am.
I like others have so many people who question my RA and tell me I shouldnt have it at 33 and I think you have got it wrong!
However I am lucky enough to have a perfect partner who although he dosent totally understand (I dont think you cant till youve got RA and Fibro) but he tries his best he reads up on others experiences and supports me all the way he does all the work and jobs he can so I dont need to push myself, he cooks all my meals and basilcaly just totally looks after me, I also have my Mum and Dad and two sisters and one friend who get it as much as someone who dosent suffer from RA can.
I have lots of other friends and family but they think if I start wearing copper braclets and take glucosamine sulphate then I will be fine tomorrow and think I am just exaggerating. If only they seen me struggling to get out of bed in the morning in a rush to make it to the toilet which would take them about 20 steps to get there but with my stifness shuffle it feels like it takes me 20 minutes.
I read so many comments that say so many people have no family to help or understand, but I dont want to brag I just want to point out to my friend and family just how gratefull I really am!
