24 Years Of RA, Want to know what people do to distract from the pain!
Last updated: May 2023
I am 26 years old and I have had RA since I was 2 years old. I cannot believe that I have had RA for 24 years, I don't remember a time before my RA. I would ask my friends in school what it would be like to be normal? I ask myself that now. My family and friends tell me that I am normal. I know this is going to sound weird but since I was diagnosed with RA I wanted to be able to sit on my feet, I would day dream about being able to sit on my feet, after I was diagnosed with RA I couldn't move much, and wasn't able to run and walk without any pain. I am a very positive person but I have my days that I feel like crap and in a lot of pain. I am writing this because I am in a good amount of pain today and trying to stay positive and was wondering what other people do to keep their mind off the pain. I am hoping that others from the community can tell me what they do to get the pain off their minds. Just comment and I will receive it on here. Thank you for your time and reading my story.
Did you know rheumatologist Dr. Donica Baker is answering community questions?
