Hi im new to writing a blog on here but would love to ask advice as it seems i cant get through to family and friends. I was diagnosed with RA in feb and used to be a hairdresser, obviously had to give that up and im now out of work, although looking. Only problem is i have no idea what im capable of anymore!! I only ever did hairdressing since leaving school but im feeling guilty about not working. I also feel bad as i come from a family of hard workers, something that i struggle with now, it takes me ages in a morning to get going and if im having a bad day i just hate sitting around while everyone else is doing something around me. Is it just me or does anyone else have trouble adjusting to a more sedate way of life?!? I try explaining to family that im tired but, call me paranoid, they just seem to not listen. If anyone has any ideas or advice id be eternally grateful!
