Hello everyone, I am mid diagnosis, I have Osteoarthritis in my hands but my uncle and son have AS. My mobility is suffering and I am about to lose my job ( which I love) as I cannot continue. I’m a Community Nurse living and working in the Brighton and Hove area all my life. Finding things stressful at the moment ( who isn’t!) waiting to hear if I’ve been awarded PIP. Dreading having to go to the Job Centre on Christmas week! Oh well, I’m usually such an upbeat person but things are wearing me down a bit. Anyway that just a little bit about me. Oh yes I’m long divorced, and I have 4 adult children and 5 grandsons.
