Hello everyone. Well this feels strange and I don't really know what to say if I'm honest.
I was diagnosed 6 months ago at a ripe age of 32 So the last few months have been a struggle at times. I have a 16 month old daughter who is quite the hand full and I work. This has affected every aspect of my life as I have struggled mentally with not being able to do certain things at times due to the pain, you know the simple things like picking up my baby from her cot. The things that were never an issue before RA. My relationship with my child's father has fallen apart as he didn't understand and clearly didn't want to understand how I was feeling whilst I was trying so hard to maintain a work and home life.
Medication so far hasn't worked so I am waiting for funding to be approved for a new drug but it's all a waiting game in the meantime steroids again at 25mg which I understand is a high dose and I worry I will affect my bones with the constant use of them.
I guess for someone who didn't know what to say I've managed to waffle on a fair bit.
