Hello my name is Marc. I have had psoriatic arthritis for eleven years. I tried various treatments for five years but it seems the standard methotrexate/leflunomide meds make me ill but did little to my condition. I was wrecked by them and now just try to cope with pain meds including fentanyl patches. My mobility is very poor and I can no longer hold a full cup of tea or cut up food for example. I am good at living with the pain but I do miss being active. I have a number of other conditions such as diabetes which I am told I manage very well. My latest problem is a feeling of vulnerability. I am coming up to 61 and I used to practice martial arts for over 45 years. Now I feel vulnerable. I have been having problems with a neighbour who has started throwing things into my garden. My wife had a mini stroke 4 years ago and frankly we dont need this childish nonsense. It wouldn't be so bad but my neighbour is my age! I am told this is a disability hate crime. ( there is more going on than just the rubbish his whole attitude is very belligerent) when I was more able bodied he was much more amenable. Well that's all for now and thank you for indulging me.
