Subject: Tug of war

Hi. Is there anyone else out there who has another mobility disability in addition to RA? I'm finding it a real tug of war. The need to move because I'm siezing up becomes overwhelming, but then if I move too much my hips (not RA) start dancing the watoozie and pain makes me need to sit again. I'm finding it a bit hard to balance to be honest. I've only just been diagnosed - and I have to say that I have a whole new level of empathy for people with arthritis in general. OMG ... it takes over your whole life. It's very hard to switch off to the pain isn't it? It's an ever present BEAST!
