Hello guys, I was diagnosed last year with Systemic Sclerosis, Raynauds and and still undergoing tests for possibly RA and various other things. This all seems to have happened really quickly and I have to admit the future terrifies me. My life has changed beyond all recognition, i used to take my dogs out for 2 hour walks, and now im in so much pain i can hardly get out of the chair. Im only 43 but feel like an old, old woman. The constant pain and loss of mobility has really effected me, as has the constant hospital apps, drugs side effects and loss of my social life. A lot of my friends have drifted away as im no longer the fun, active bubbly person I once was. Im a very positive person, i keep busy and still work part time but lately have been really struggling mentally. Can I ask you guys if you have experienced similar, and any meds/self help things that have helped you? Thanks in advance guys
