Scared to death

I am 42 & was diagnosed last yr, after a yr of heart trouble & a ton of Dr visits, I have been on so many drugs plus methotrexate nothing was working. I was unable to continue my job as a cna so I lost my job & my insurance. I stopped all the meds & have been trying natural stuff. But its not working. I feel like I'm laying here waiting to die & I'm terrified. I have 3 grown kids & a grandson & a wonderful man who tries to help. But I'm losing myself. I need advice. I have so much more I wanted to do.

  1. Hi Christy, Very sorry to hear of your struggles and experiences with RA. Unfortunately, for most people the medications and seeing a rheumatologist are truly fundamental in controlling/managing the disease. The earlier and better the RA is controlled, the greater the likelihood of minimizing the long term damage. Is it possible for you to see a rheumatologist and explore treatments? Wishing you the best--Kelly
