Hi Korma, hope you're feeling a little brighter today - it sounds like you're really getting your head in a better place, which is an amazing achievement.x Sorry if it's already been mentioned or if you're already on one, but have you considered an antidepressant medication at all? x

Korma, that sounds positive. Keep on with the plans and ticking things off. Very satisfying.
Keep your chin up. It is tough, I'm not minimising it.
I said before, if you try to address the whole of your future, it can overwhelm you. So dont. Deal with today and tomorrow. Give yourself a pat on the back for keeping going. You're a star. thanks

The DLA form isn't easy to fill in. I wrote what my life was like on an average day, ie,

07:00 alarm went off but I didn't have the energy to get out of bed. This is because I suffer from fatigue and wake most mornings exhausted.

smile You're very welcome x

Morning korma, hope the second day of the New Year is a good one. How are you feeling today?

Hi Korma, so glad you sound a bit more positive than you did at the start of this thread.

My mum was pretty much crippled by arthritis/ SLE from an early age (I was 7) I had to learn to help dress her, I saw her crying in pain many many times, but I was so impressed with her determination and bravery- she was heroic, and I admired and loved her so much. Your ds will feel the same about you. What amazed me about my mum was that, despite being in so much pain herself, she could still put it aside and look after me when I needed her/ was ill. Sadly we lost her when she was only 55, but she made a huge impression on my life. I'm sure you'll be the same for your ds. Here's hoping things get a bit easier for you.

Hi korma pain relief sounds good over the past couple of days, and that is maybe just the interim stuff, maybe after your appointment you will get some more hardcore stuff too!
Hope last night was ok, look forward to a new start and getting some help to sort you out. Xx

Korma, We haven't ever met but if I remember correctly you live very local to me (it was a failed mn meet years ago- I am not a stalker!) If there is anything I can do ANYTHING then let me know, PM me if you want to

aroomofherown Mon 31-Dec-12 21:21:48

And Happy New Year to you!

LadyMaryChristmas Mon 31-Dec-12 21:14:32

There was something on the front of one of the newspapers today about medical advances in arthritis care (could have been the Daily Fail). I'm so pleased the meds are helping. Onwards and upwards! smile

Yes!! One day at a time. The main thing is to listen to your body. If it's starting to get sore or tired, then take a break. It's telling you to stop, and you have to do this. The world isn't going to stop turning if you sit down and have a cup of tea or a nap. Pushing forward is good, listening is just as important. smile

DameFannyGallopsBEHINDyou Mon 31-Dec-12 20:02:22

And take your pain relief! The side effects will wear off the more regularly you take them, and getting some quality sleep and pain free time will do a hell of a lot for your optimism. When are you seeing the specialist next?

Can you look on 2012 as the year you got ill, and look forward to 2013 as the year when treatment kicked in and you regained some mobility? Or is that too Pollyanna-ish at the moment?

porridgelover Mon 31-Dec-12 15:43:04

Good luck for tonight. Is there anything about the rest of this week that you can focus on to get you through it; anything you want to get done?

CuddlyBlanket Mon 31-Dec-12 15:29:04

I think the gatering will help distract you for a little while from the dx, and hopefully some love at the party will help you feel more worthwhile to others.
