Hi John,
I am a newbie as well. I had really horrible finger ulcers years ago. I did not know that I had a disease. I was a bartender and attributed them to "bar rot" as my hands were always wet. That was the only symptom I had. They went away and I haven't had any bad ones since. Although now, I have all kinds of symptoms. I am happy to have found this forum as well, people who know what I am going thru and have the same things going on.

Hi guys I hope you are well as can be. I'm bumming today, I had to turn down a job offer because it consisted of putting furniture together, and carrying heavy appliances, and I can't go grasping anything like that without excruciating pain. I still have hope of landing another position I applied for at an auto parts store, mostly counter work, but I'm running out of time and the bills are past due. I am going to put my Mustang GT for sale online today and hopefully sell it to make it through the winter. I love my Stang, we've been together a long time but I am having trouble coming up with money to pay the bills and I also need 200.00 to see the Rhuemo next month. I'll work it out somehow. The pain in my fingers is really bad this morning and radiates up to my elbow. It's time to hit the ol pain meds. I wish everyone a good day.- John
