Lifetime with JRA
I was 2 when I got diagnosed with JRA. I went in and out of remission mostly in my adulthood. During my childhood, I had to mostly sit on the sidelines watching my peers wishing I could join in. After high school I met my husband thru mutual friends and had 2 girls. My oldest has arthritis for the past 4 years. I had both knees replaced, both wrists fused, finger joint replaced and back. I'm taking Humira and Tramadol. The doctors are shocked that I'm still walking with all the problems. I also have many forms of autoimmune disorders. I just get up everyday and fight. I'm not ready to give up at 49 yrs old - I still have things to do and people to see.
When was your last flare?
