My Struggle with RA

Since being diagnosed with RA about 8 years ago it has been a journey.

Ups and downs with RA

There have been times I've screamed in pain and cried all day long and it has taken years to find a medication that actually worked.

But I now have so many other problems, osteoarthritis, diabetes, insomnia, it just seems to be never-ending.

It seems like this disease just takes over your life but I try to stay positive and enjoy the good days and make it through the bad.

I'm finding it's good to have a support system because if we don't talk about it and how we are feeling then we might lose our minds.
