I have Rheumatoid Arthritis diagnosed at 28. I am now 49 I was also diagnosed with Bipolar in 2009 and I was diagnosed with Asthma approximately 5 year's ago and finally I was diagnosed with Irritable bowel Syndrome last year. I am currently awaiting until after the covid 19 is over to find out if I am also Diabetic Type 2 as I am borderline and apparently my last blood test last year showed that I was at 48 which apparently is just over the scale between 42-47 the nurse told me at my appointment last year to come back in March 2020 to have my bloods checked again but for obvious reasons that's been put off until further notice. I am pleased to become a member as it can be difficult talking to family and friends about difficulties with my health conditions although I am very lucky to have a extremely supportive family and friends. I am now living alone for the first time in my life as I lost my Husband Peter to cancer on the 13th of March 2018 and I am feeling his loss more this year even before we heard the first news of this coronavirus. I had my PIP renewal assessment on the 10th of March 2020 which as usual was very stressful and traumatic and I am still waiting to hear if I will be able to keep my mobility car not that I can use it at the moment anyway. It is extremely difficult times that we are living in and I know that I am not alone but I have always been a very strong independent person mostly and I am sure that most of you will understand that you don't always want to talk to family and friends about your burdens. Thanks for listening.
