I was diagnosed in rheumatoid arthritis in January after suffering for over a year with no answers. Working as a cashier in a bank I am finding tasks difficult. I don't want to let my team down by having days off when I flare up (most often when I'm switching meds) but I also know I don't want to make anything worse.I'm lucky, my bosses are trying to help, but don't really understand when I suffer with a flare up, despite explaining numerous times and just seem to think I'm just off again. I'm only 20 and don't really know hows best to deal with it all!
