Living with Rheumatoid arthritis
I’ve been living with Rheumatoid arthritis for over 8 years now.even though I’m on all sort of medications you may know about RA my bones scan results comes very bad and weak.My GP told me that they are as weak as for a 80 years old and that I can’t be on any medications for it since I’m only 34 years old.I feel so lost and sad.
im not having any flare ups at the moment but oh God I’m so weak! I’m living on red bull and monster to help me care for a 3years old with ADHD.I can’t no longer walk like I use to.my legs sometimes completely refuse to move at all even though I’m not in pain.
The depression and anxiety are at the worst due to universal credit ignoring my health condition and asking me to look for work.
I feel like no one is taking Arthritis seriously around me.
I also have a visible walking disability on my left leg that made it most more smaller than the right one du to polio.
Any tips are welcome
thank you all in advance
