Well this is my first blog and its murder trying to type. I was told 4 years ago that I had RA and have had all sorts of treatments. I still try and smile however somedays it's hard. I was a joiner on site and not being able to use my hands as much as I did makes it difficult to be positive some days. The staff at the hospital have been great but my biggest challenge has been trying to get a claim sorted from Legal and General for critical illness as they will do everything to delay and change the goal posts at every stage. I now work in an office doing admin and my employer and boss has been great but sometimes I wish I could do more around the house and help in the day to day activities that my lovely wife's does.
