Aah, sorry to hear that. I'm sure you look good whether puffy or not!! As for the melted Stilton ......... as long as you don't have the aroma that accompanies it!😳😱

He has no filter . He is as blunt as they come . He was asked once in a meeting at work .. do you get into many fights down the pub ? You don’t pull any punches 😂😂😂

Just curious, could your joints tolerate the hot weather before you all were on medication? Or is it the medication? Yesterday I walked with with my neighbor, but I was in so pain much, I had to stop the walk early. Then when I looked in the mirror, my eyes were puffy with bags that aged me by 10 years. That happens whenever I don't feel good, regardless of sleep.

Pre diagnosis I was finding I was getting puffier and puffier with stiffness as the years went on . Hindsight I’ve had RA years before being diagnosed so I think it’s the disease it’s worse now with fibromyalgia. The medication made me photosensitive. Can’t bare sunlight have to wear sunglasses and a hat . Factor 50 at all times even the winter . Even sitting in the shade cause a rash that lasts for ages .

I've never been a hot weather person, but have got seriously worse since diagnosis.

Waiting for my feet to do their blancmange puffing over the shoes which happens when is over 20 degrees. I was sitting in semi shade with a cuppa then the window cleaner arrived who thinks our garden is a nice place to be for an hour so ...... I’m back in! Soon to return when he’s gone. However there is a distinct breeze so it didn’t feel stifling although it’s 23 degrees.

Ankles in particular don't like it and I am hobbling about like walking on hot coals. 🤣

Oh up and down but generally up . Diagnosis of fibromyalgia so learning what’s RA and what’s fibromyalgia is interesting. Bloody Gp kept saying oh your RA is playing up even when I said I wasn’t sure it was . Anyway I can move on now with more knowledge. I’m being made redundant along with 3 other colleagues. Hey ho money will be tight but it’s not the end of the world but will miss the children.. how are you? X

I'm plodding along. Like you weather is not being nice to my joints. But hey ho. Sorry to hear about the redundancy. Kids will miss you dearly.

Not sure how these extended days will go down .total burnout . Children are falling through the cracks as it is x

Ms-D in reply to J1707

I agree but I'm not willing to extend my day. Im already at work by 745 and leave at 330pm some days even later. They need to sort this out. As fir gcse I think after last year and this year they need to think this through as kids will be suffering for a few years still. My daughter goes into year 10 and already talks of disruption to exams next year.🙈

I agree my son is year 12 . His predictions have already dropped. He’s doing the work but they are so far behind x

Oh that’s interesting. I just came on here to ask about RA and the sun. I’ve always loved the sun and try to get out as much as possible when it’s nice. But after a lovely weekend out and about I’m having a flare up ☹️

A lot of us have been there. I was someone who loved the hot weather even though I’m a fair skinned person. 2 years ago went to Greece for my holiday. It nearly killed me off spending the whole holiday in my room just drinking water . The inclusive holiday a waste of money 🥺never again.

Yes the Sue Ellen effect is back! (Swellin) Bring on cooler days! 👣 Loving the idea of a walk in fridge and could see it as an alternative to a sauna. Feeling hot hot hot when I'd rather not not not! 🥵🥵🥵
