Hi all, I am new to the forum and I wanted some advice. I've had RA for around 5 years and was diagnosed 2 years ago. I was on Methleotrexate (unsure if I spelt that correctly) but came off it in January due to the side effects making me poorly. Since then I've been waiting to get onto a new set of medication and as a result my RA has got worse. I'm now not active much anymore as the swelling in my knees is extremely bad and walking it hurting. My wife is finding it difficult as I've lost all motivation and she has taken on the bulk of house work whilst looking after our young child. Is there anything I can do to get my motivated and picked up from being this down? I've been advised my new medication will arrive in 3 weeks but not sure my family can cope with me much more.
