Pain Is So Hard To Live With

I have submitted other stories on here a few months ago. I was diagnosed with JRA when I was 2 years old and now I am 26 years old. My life has been pretty hard having pain. When I was a child it was really hard for me to fit in. After I became an adult life became a little easier. I need a double knee replacement and I need to lose 50lbs before I do and it’s getting a little easier everyday. I am losing weight and becoming more active. At the end of the day I am very tired and my body is in a lot of pain.
I finally found my wonderful fiancé who does most things around the house for me. It’s so hard for me to do the normal house chores. I think other people take advantage of how easily they can get up and clean the house do dishes and laundry all in the same day with no problem but for someone with RA getting one or two of those things done in one day can be difficult. So having my fiancé helping me I am not as tired or in as much pain at the end of the day. I also do nice things for myself like dying my hair or getting my nails done or putting some comfy clothes on that also look nice. What I am trying to say is that doing something nice for yourself might make you feel a little better. If anyone just needs someone to talk to I am on here all the time and I receive emails every time I receive a comment below.
