Hi does anyone else seem to have this problem. I'm gettng a lot of people who seem to think that RA isn't really that big a deal, i get comments like "well it isn't affecting you all that much is it?" and if i mention that my arm aches or i'm really tired i get told "join the club" by people with young children or people with tennis elbow. Please don't think i'm having a go at people with children or tennis elbow as i know a lot of people deal with all sorts of things in their lives but i does get me down that this seems to happen when it is such a big thing in my life. I was talking to a sports therapist the other day who told me not to make excuses and to work through my pain in the gym as i do need to lose weight and did i want people attending my funeral in ten years time! all because i said that at the moment i think the gym is too much for me and i think i should take up swimming.
Is it just me?
