I am new to the forum so thought I would start by introducing myself. My name is Sonia, I am 51 and live in Derbyshire with my Hubby and two daughters. I was first diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in November 2014 after having joint pain and swelling in my hands. Since then it has escalated and I now have it in my neck and lower spine. I also have Fibromylralgia and Osteopenia.
I am hoping to hear from anyone who has advice on how to manage the condition at work - particularly if like me, you are a Housekeeper. I enjoy my job which is very unique and I am lucky in so many ways, but I am finding certain parts of my work difficult to deal with and am currently signed off with high blood pressure and stress. If anyone has any pearls of wisdom please share - grateful for any ideas on how to move forward.
