Tomorrow my brother is getting married and I have gone to great trouble to find something lovely to wear which is comfy, easy to put on and looks good. My sister asked me today why I never wear a skirt and when I told her I have to wear trousers because I simply cannot get tights on because of my pain etc she was horrified, she said she had never realised that RA was this bad and she was shocked that the pain I suffer can affect me like this. What I am saying is never assume that your nearest and dearest are aware of our problems. We had a chat and I gently told her that I have to compromise on so many things nowadays and she shed a tear and said she was sorry that she has misunderstood things for so long. I am 65 and she is 54 and she just thought I was getting old prematurely!! Anyway, looking forward to tomorrow ....
