Hi, I really need some help on something I've been toying with.
I really want to help people with RA live a life they love well. The reason I want that for others is because I know how RA can totally knock you off your feet, tip your world upside down, empty your pockets, bash you about and then leave you on the floor. While the doctors try different meds to cover up the physical pain, there's something intrinsic that shifts. It affects your relationships, work, mind, self-care, money, recreation - the list is endless; but mostly it affects who are you inside and that's what the doctors don't cover. Navigating that on your own is scary, often lonely and overwhelming. I know, I'm going through it.
So what I'm really looking for are people I can talk to (on the phone) about if support like this is wanted, needed and necessary. And if they'd be willing for someone like me, to help guide them in addressing and changing these things in their life?
I know it's a big idea and a big ask, but any chats you can have with me are greatly and warmly appreciated.
