Hi, I've just joined today and it's good to find some people who know what its all about
I was diagnosed 10 years ago, but only began to have really bad flares when I gave up smoking three years ago. Currently suffering with terrible joint pain, particularly my hips. When I finish my shift I'm exhausted, hurt all over and my hips are one vast agony.
I'm wondering how long I can keep doing this. Only been in the job for 7 weeks and I was so hoping to keep on with it, but sometimes the shifts fall 2.30 to 9.30 pm and then 7.30-2.30 the next morning. I'm feeling more and more tired and pissed off
Sorry to be a misery, guys...wanted to say "hi" and it turned into a whine...
