Having been diagnosed with RA last year I am currently taking 12.5mg mexathorate and 10mg weekly and just 2mg prednisolone daily. Now that the meds have bedded in I do feel so much better than this time last year but I would love to wake up in the morning knowing that I will have no aches and pains for at least a day!! My left thumb has now decided to play up so its off to Occupational health for some tips and strappings always found physio a complete waste of time!. My point is that I do appear to be getting very depressed about everyday life and just end up grinning and bearing it which I am sure at 53 cannot be the answer. I am finding it diffuicult to go to work on a daily basis my employers does not care about RA and just think I am making it up! I get anxious over silly things last year I tried CBT at the request of my doctor but really after three sessions what is that all about....... am I the only one who feels like this??? what does the future hold or is it just grin and bear it........
