As I slowly recover from my unidentified infection, I have distracted myself by thinking about my exciting 2016 holiday. My best friend and I are planning a road trip, starting in San Francisco and ending up in LA. This will be my biggest holiday ever and I'm doing it with arthritis, as sadly I have not yet found a way to leave it behind.
My main worry is the flight. The longest flight I've done is 5.5 hours and London to San Francisco is nearly double that. I know I will need a wheelchair as I step/hobble off the plane and I wear flight stockings but if anyone else has any tips, I'd be grateful. As we'll be doing a lot of driving, I may get stiff in the car too. I know I'll need to carefully balance moving enough but not too much. This is obviously going to be quite a costly adventure and I want to ensure that I plan enough to I get the most out of it.
Thanks in advance.
