No one should have to cope with RA alone. But that's exactly the position that so many of us find ourselves in. Even in giant New York City, there are few resources for RA patients to find emotional support and share stories with each other. That's why we started a new peer-led support group. We had our first meeting last week and will meet every month going forward. Please join us if you are in NYC. We share local resources for RA patients, tips, and stories and everyone in our group understands exactly what you are going through. No one is going to try to convince you of the latest miracle cure or tell you that you just need to get over that fatigue... Because we're all going through it together.

Wishing everyone a pain-free day!
