I'm 47, female, and have had Psoriatic Arthritits since I was a teen (I also have a lot of other health problems due to a condition call Turner Syndrome, and so Arthritis is only part of what's on my medical "plate"). I've been through the ringer (every NSAID, DMARD, Biologic etc known to man as well as multiple joint replacements). Recently, I had a left Total hip replacement, which didn't go well. It looks like it needs to be redone (after less than a year). I'm extremely depressed and frustrated not only at the prospect of another major surgery so soon, but also that I feel like I have almost no support network. During my convalesence from my THR this past Feb, my mom flew up from down south to help, but she's getting older and slowing down, and it was really hard for her to help, and it wore her out. I felt extremely bad when I saw how hard it was for her. After she left "friends" who I had asked for help and support (picking up stuff from the Drug store or supermarket, helping with housework or just visiting) totally abandoned me after my mom left (all except for one neighbor, who also isn't well). I'm very very disappointed in these "friends" and can't bear the thought of going through another surgery without support. Does anyone have any suggestions?
