I knew I'd come to terms with having arthur around when I started to dream arthritically. Whenever I dream now I can't run anymore, need help dressing/undressing (though that can be quite interesting depending on who's giving you a hand ) or undoing a bottle of pop and I'm dying of thirst .............just like real life. :roll:
Hi you guys,
Sorry. Been away. Missed all this & not time to read all but here’s my two pennorth.
I never did the shoe thing as been in surgical ones most of my adult life. Never did the fashion thing either so none of that bothers me...............
Solution – every time I have to give something up I take something else on. I did an O.U module in composition (Fingers were up to that & great fun). Couldn’t work so took up voluntary work. (Only 4 hours per week.) When walking became big problem took up horse riding (RDA). When surgeon iffy about that took up ‘walks with wheelchair’ ie walk some, ride some.
My philosophy – keep as active as possible and feel useful. Having said that I am blest with great family and friends. Makes a huge difference.
............so says Legs wearing her Pollyanna hat
........can I just say i also try to stay positive, I really do and i have neither good or close family and do live alone so its not that which ,makes the difference at all to it.
