My pain keeps me feeling sad and depressed. I know I shouldn't feel this way but it's hard living like this. After my lung disease diagnosis and new added medz my AR has just been horrible. I miss my old self so bad. I guess I'm just grieving the lose of what once was me, as I adjust more to this new me. I'm just tied of being sick and dealing with so much..

      I have RA and Depression, severe Depression. Thank God for meds or I would be in an institution. Having both is hard to deal with. I take Sam E and Happy Camper from the Health food store. The SamE is good for mood joints and liver and the other one is just for mood. I also take Turmeric MSM and Glucosamine Condrotin. My doctor recommended that years ago. It see ms to help me get thru the day.

      🙏ty so much for sharing! I've learned to adapt as well as I can. Knowing others with similar experiences helps me. I can feel so alone. I have my family but they have no concept of what I am going through.

      I know how you feel. Because of my RA when I broke my ankle it has taken almost 3 years to heal. Been hospitalized 6 times, due to blood infections. I lost 1/2 of inch of my right leg. The rest of my life I will have a limp. I get so depressed about my life at times. Thankfully I have my family to lean on. Truthfully I can't even get out of my bedroom 😫 most days.

        @Avioletblue71 that's me and I hate it. It just me and my son he's 23 and doing his best to help me. At times I feel it's to much for him..being my legs going here and there for me. That's why when I can do for myself.. i have a chair I use to sit down in the kitchen to cook. And I've learned to clean the bathroom sitting down all but the tub 😄. I've found ways to make my bed but I be so winded and achy when done. I go to sleep. But I am thankful I have him cause none of my family even thinks to say hey you need anything. But it's was like this when my mother was alive I did everything. 😥
