I was diagnosed with RA in September of last year and I'm still really struggling to accept it. Im struggling with how much it affects my ability to be a mum at times. I had a brief but beautiful spell of a pain free body because I was on a higher dosage of prednisolene but since reducing it I have flared up so bad I can't walk properly. The backs of my feet reaalt hurt and I'm sure I'm damaging my knee by walking to compensate for the pain and my wrists kill. Any other mums struggle with the guilt? I feel terrible for my little man. I can't play football, I can't chase him, I can't always pick him up when he wants to be lazy, I can't do so much I see other mums of little ones do. I'm 25 years old and my little mans 2. I feel so guilty he has to have the mum who can't walk properly, who can't play properly.
