Live each day to it's fullest

I'm 61 years old and I have had RA since I was 27. Yes a long time, but I consider myself very lucky. My faith is what has gotten me through all things. I take only naproxen for my RA. Each day is a blessing. I do as much for myself as I can.

One of the things I would like to do is start a support group for RA. One thing people say is I never complain. I do not blame any one for my RA. It could be worse. When I got diagnosed, a girl that I worked with also got diagnosed. She has MS and now is confined to a wheel chair and also has a device to help hold her head up. I am blessed.
