Subject: really fed up

sorry to moan but i'm just so fed up and frustrated - the pains in my ankles and groin are so bad at the moment that i cant even stand up - i've had to phone in sick from work and that hasn't gone down very well - i've got a new boss and he just doesn't understand what RA is like - i'm sure he thinks i'm putting it on - i work in audiology and i had to explain to him last week why i cant do the intricate repairs coz my hands dont work properly and he asked me if i thought i was in the right proffession !!aaagh !! now im phoning in to say i cant walk so i suppose i understand how hes thinking but its just so upsetting.i try not to moan too much to my family - so i thought that maybe writing it down on here might help - im sick of sitting in tears on my own.Sorry for whinging but i could scream!!

Hi Sandy, sorry to here you are fed up. Your new Boss seems a bit uncaring, people find arthritis of any type hard to understand as it is not anything they can see. Have you tried taking in some leaflets for your colleagues to read so they can help you a bit. I don't mean with your work more morale support and understanding when you are having a bad day. Maybe leave it where your manager can see it. Your manager should be helping you not making you feel bad. We don't mind whinging or screaming on here you go for it. You take time off sick if this is what you need, don't feel pressured into returning to work until you are ready. I hope you feel better soon. Take Care X
