I developed Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 28 and with a new born baby and retirement from nursing adapting to this new way of life was overwhelming. I became isolated and started having Panic Attacks. Gradually I learned to manage my condition with the love and support from my husband and an arthritis charity. Later I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and later with Osteoporosis. My progress continued over the years and I became a volunteer for the charity and now employed by them. I missed doing crafts over the years but kept trying for short intervals. From 2014 we had a very stressful time with ageing parents and I found book folding. I found this manageable and therapeutic and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have since learned to make flowers which are popular. With 23 years of experiencing these conditions I have had lots of time to become a good self manager. The Arthritis is in a drug induced remission most of the time and the Fibromyalgia is manageable. Flare ups are unpredictable and can happen out of the blue. Slowing down during these times is a must for me.
