As you know I have been diagnosed with RA and Ostparosas in my back along with an underactive thyroid and asthma !! Reading some of the posts on hear I seem lucky I'm not in as much pain as most of you seem to be , and I feel for you all!!
Since I've been diagnosed with RA I found people don't realise how much pain you are in ....I get up in the morning and it can take up to half an hour for me to get going properly !! Then I go put my face on 😀 and people say your looking good !! If only they could realise the pain your in ...because your not got a plaster cast or something visible they don't seem to understand how much pain that goes with having RA ... but I'm luck most of my friend are really good where I work and are understanding as are my family so I'm lucky really . But I do know a lot of people out there really don't understand RA . Maybe this horrible decease should be made more aware so people can understand how we all feel, aand then they can see how much of a struggle it is some days for us alk out there .
I know before I was diagnosed with RA I wasn't that aware of it or knew much about it, so a bit more public awareness it much needed I think .😊
