I’ve been feeling quite down recently.
I’ve been having some tummy problems which I think might be all of the different medications.
Work’s been quite difficult as well. I make sure I rarely take time off work because of previous comments. Some days I just feel so sore and tired, I make myself go in but it’s never really appreciated.
As many people have experienced, people who don’t suffer from arthritis don’t understand what it’s like to be in pain every day and to have to take all the different medications. I find I’m normally ignored or people just brush over it as being a little bit of back ache. Sometimes I start to think is all the pain in my head.
I’m currently waiting for some counselling sessions which I was referred to in September by my GP and I received a letter last week explaining I was still on the waiting list and they were not sure when I would get an appointment, so that hasn’t helped either.
I just wish someone would understand, it would make things so much easier.
