Consistent RA obstacles

I live in New Jersey and I have had RA for almost 40 years.

When I think it can’t get any worse it does. I have been on pain medicine. They found a dosage that doesn’t take away all the pain, but I can function.

I was told by my doctor last month he has to drop the dosage by 5mg & I know I can’t function on that dosage.

Longing for more

I take the meds as prescribed. There is so much more I want to do with my life now.

I have added anxiety, depression and my blood pressure is going up. Does anyone else feel this way?
