Learning How to Live With RA
I’ve always been a very active person, raising 3 of my own children, my eldest having serious development problems and epilepsy, plus fostering 4 more from one family, plus caring for my husband who has serious heart/diabetes, plus caring for my elderly infirm dad.
Anger, envy, and RA
Now to come to this, RA plus OA plus other health issues. Needing to use a walker indoors and w/chair when out.
I see people a lot older than me walking to the local shops, or walking to catch a bus and although I don’t mean to be, I feel so very envious and angry with myself that I can’t do those things.
I’ve been told that I need to see lack of mobility as a new way of living which I need to adjust to, and while that makes sense, it doesn’t stop those feelings of envy.
Thank you for listening, Maureen55!
On average, how many times per month do you (or your caretaker) go to the pharmacy?
