When I was 6, my dad and brother left my mom due to her RA.
So I was homeschooled so I could take care of her.
I did. I became a housekeeper, nurse, and cook.
RA diagnosis impacted education
I graduated at 16 and went to Harvard Med school for 4 years.
I had to quit because my dad had his 5th heart attack and quad bypass. Or I would have finished.
I was 33 when diagnosed.
Managing RA & comorbidities
I have Latent Tuberculosis and was treated for 2 years and still have it. In pain management to deal with it.
