I am still battling...

I have been battling Rheumatoid Arthritis for 25 years now. I turned 50 this year and that is when I realized...this disease has ravaged my body for 1/2 my life. It attacked me during my child bearing years. 18 surgeries later, 2 titanium knees and a titanium elbow, all replaced and revised 2 times already. Crumbling bones and all....I AM STILL BATTLING. I am in pain EVERY day, but I will not let this disease take anything else from me. I still work full-time and it is a struggle every day to get this battered body up and out of the house, but I do it because I still can. Don't ever give up, you must keep battling, it's not over
