 Hellow ladies.I hope you all are doing pretty.  Ok, I am from San Angelo TX and dont really get to get out much.So that also means that I dont know to many who also have RA.Which means,yep you guessed it,Im sort of alone here. I am married,but there is only so much he understands.Dont get me wrong, he is a wonderful husband who has done so much for me,its just that he could never understand to the degree that we do.Right now for instance,my left shoulder is hurting to the point that it hurts to lift it past a certain point,these past few days its my hands and feet that hurt to where I bump my hand and OMG it hurt so bad I was crying hard(something I have not done in awhile),so hard I scared my 3yr old son,he cried with me and said" Mommy its ok,dont cry please"   I just sometimes wish that I had someone here nearby with our illness to understand,and a shoulder to cry on............ Thanks for being there ladies.

 

p.s. does anyones hair fall out since being sick? mine does when I wash or brush,I was thinking of buying a different shampoo....any ideas.......................thanksgroup hug

sorry you feel alone! but all us ladies here know exactly how you feel! what a sweet little boy you have to hug you. my hair has really thinned out. try to take some folic acid, it definitely reduces the fall out....take care...

Thank you for the idea,I will try that. Thank you ladies for taking the time to respond to this post,it means alot. So far I am not on meds,just Tylenol,since I do not have Health insurance.I just was able to get some insurance so ill be trying to make an appointment with a Doc(hopefully he wont be rude and judgemental-like last time)So Im looking forward to getting back on meds                    I do hope all you ladies are doing well and one of the biggest hugs Im sending yalls way.wreath
