Asking for Help
People who have rheumatoid arthritis are just like everyone else. We work for a living, have families and friends, shop and run errands and play. Many of us have hobbies and pursue our passions with dedication and joy. We want to do everything we can--just like anyone.

Sometimes we simply have to stop, take care of ourselves, and heal. And while most of us resist it for as long as we can, sometimes, we just have to ask for help.
