I just wanted to let my leaders to know that I am having a total right knee done this afternoon and that I won't be in the Mighty today unless it is to wake up overnight to read the posts. I do more reading than posting because as soon as I think of what I want to say, I fall asleep. But do know that I get more out of reading than trying to find a counselor that doesn't understand our #chronic pain, #chronic illnesses, #UCTD , #Fibromyalgia , and my list of #mental health problems, plus about #10 more problems that I have. Thank you all for being here.😉 And I will talk to you soon.🤗!
Has anybody on here, who Is pretty much housebound, and seething with boredom! tried learning a new instrument with a visiting tutor before?
I would definitely need physical guidance as my co-ordination /fine motor skills can be tricky.
I learnt piano as a teenager and regret not seeing it through, as I found two hands tricky and being a typical adolescent 'boring" 🤣🤦♀️. But now I see it as a challenge?
Would love something to do which would also be an achievement for me.
I'm a creative so and so and have tried a few crafts but they were not for Me and everytime I hear a piano being beautifully played i can't help but feel jealous
I have chronic fatigue as part of my undifferentiated connective tissue disease and not sure if it would get in the way? I'm also very shy (autistic) so the initial meeting with a tutor may be kinda overwhelming but this is minor really
Thoughts? Kind Regards
Advice for #UndifferentiatedConnectiveTissueDisease
Hello! New here. I'm 28 with recently diagnosed UCTD and inflammatory polyarthritis. I had positive antibodies to scleroderma as well but not enough clinical symptoms to be diagnosed with that for now. I was just started on Prednisone and Plaquenil. I was told about the risks to vision and potential GI upset. How long does it usually take to tell a difference with Plaquenil, and do the side effects lessen as you adjust to being on it? Does anyone here have tips for handling this condition or experience with it transitioning to a more defined CTD? #UndifferentiatedConnectiveTissueDisease #Plaquenil #Gatheringknowledge
