I ventured out yesterday with mum to an Avon party that a family friend was hosting. First day out this week so was in good spirits.
meeting new people and explaining why I am in the wheelchair and the kids have a poke at the knee splints is becoming quite normal.
I took it quite hard coming round to having RA but have always been quite positive on the outside.
A lady in the group started asking a few questions more than others and then pipped up that she has RA, automatically thought she would be like you guys, nice and understanding etc.
No!!! She went into a rant about MTX had given her cancer and how all the drugs I am on make cancer more likely and telling me I hope the pain relief now is worth cancer etc just wanted to cry.
I know all our drugs have effects and I was only on mtx for a little while but what she said has really gotten to me. Can't help thinking about!
Silly old bag.
