I was given higher level ill health retirement in April due to rheumatoid arthritis I have since had foot surgery. The thing is even though I am not working I still feel absolutely washed out. There are days when it is a huge effort to get out of bed. I also have under active thro I'd taking 100 mc daily. when I mention this exhaustion to specialist nurse I am told it is part of rheumatoid arthritis and to pace myself. I am so fed up of feeling exhausted. In February I am going to have to find a part time job for finance reasons but because I have done the same job since I was 19 (now 52) it is not going to be easy. sorry to moan but sometimes it does you good to get it all of your chest
