I haven,t been on for a while as I have had a lot happening
Tuesday of this week I took my husband to have his Lumber punchure procedure. One very scared and frightened man. I am pleased to say all went well. The doctor let me stay with him and my hands have just recovered from being crushed.
All was going well until we came to drive home and I got lost. So a journey that should have taken 30 minutes took 3 hours. I thought we would take the scenic route route home round Birmingham!!!! I managed to get onto the M% heading to Wales - please no comments about women drivers and their sense of direction or lack there off
We have been told that the flat we have lived in for the last 10 years is no longer suitable for our needs and we have got to move to a ground floor. This is frighening to accept that you are no longer able to do what you have done normally for so long.
Both of us are slowly comming to terms with the fact we are both disabled in our 40's. Bath time is hilarious - me with RA trying to lift a 5ft 8 man out of a bath when his right hand arm is useless. A very easy way to wash the bathroom floor but I would not reccommend it!!!
I am back on the transport department at work as my collegue could not cope - so all the hard work with HR was in vain. I am not sure what to do now?
I am having to deal with the complicated benefit system, my husband nurses whilst trying to cope holding down a full time job. Who said life is fair because whoever said it was having a very sick joke. I need time out and do not know how to do it as I am the only one working.
I feel so guilty as there are worse people than me out there - but this is my RA and I am tired in pain, frightened and feel useless all at the same time
I hope that all of you are coping keeping warm and not in too much pain
Take care all of you
