Subject: hi all, sorry i have not been on for a long time

hi all. I hope your all doing ok and not in to much pain , I have not been on for a long time, I think it is almost a year since my last post, I had just had my elbow replaced if i'm right, that went well, but my foot has now turned over, so i'm walking on the side of my foot, when in the bungalow, as for going out, my husband has to take me in the wheelchair, I feel so low, I'm used to going out and shopping with friends, but that's all had to stop and I'm still unable to drive, I have had a scan on the foot and waiting for a date for an operation on it, after that they will look into sorting my other elbow out, am I the only one who feel's so low and worthless'

hi sue

good to hear from you , hope they sort your foot out before to much damage is done , they could fuse some of the joints which would help you & get rid of load of the pain from it & you should still be able to drive with it ,

please your elbow went well , btw think all of us with long term arthritis do suffer feeling low , try to get out a bit & maybe find a hobby like family history which can be fun & interesting

take care & hope you feel better soon

Nice to hear from you Sue. That's good news about your elbow. It is hard not to get down at times with this disease but don't allow it to beat you. Things will get better.

Are you still on rituximab? or is it something else now?

Take care and as Lois always says, keep your chin up. xxx
