Weepy day today. Saw GP this morning to discuss other meds I am on and have had a clear out of everything no longer taking. Has cut my list down from 4 pages to 2! GP then asked if I got depressed. Floodgates opened, several tissues later, she asked if I had ever had counselling and whether I would like to see a psychologist to discuss everything which has happened over the last few years (Cancer, Thyroid disease, heart disease and RA). What a wonderful list of ailments but no Angina attack now for 6 years and thyroid levels are still ok (thyroid removed completely in 2001). Asked how I coped day to day. Explained I read, painted, listened to music, took puppy dog out, stroked the cat and generally gave myself a good talking to. I can let her know if I wish to pursue the psychologist bit.
Does anyone else have experience of that? and If so, did it help? Would be glad to know.
Feet also very painful still and fingers keep cramping up and twisting to one side so I have to straighten them again. Did mention the rotator cuff to GP but it seems it is part of the RA although steroid injections don't touch it. Do wonder if I should now go for the ultra sound to see what trouble is there.
