This week, I'm having a bit of a rant about compromises over at HealthCentral:

"Splints for your wrists
A cane to lean on
Orthopedic shoes that have room for swollen ankles and aching toes
Loose clothes that’s easier to put on

When you first get diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, no one tells you this disease may require equipment that’ll make you stand out in a crowd and not the kind of standing out that happens when you're wearing a pair of really sexy shoes. They don’t tell you this equipment looks like it belongs in a hospital and there is no handy list of shops with fashionable clothes for people who have trouble with buttons."

The rest of the posts is here.
