The Year 2007

I never knew I had RA until 2007, I had three people who passed
away within a month. I woke up and could not see, it was black, so my father rushed me to the ER the doctors didn't know what to do. I had no white or red blood cells. My body attacked my eyes. They found a doctor who deals with uveitis, I had shots of steroids in my eyes. I have 20 percent vision left in my left eye.
Fast forward I was on Remicade for four years, now I take Humira every ten days. My RA is everywhere in my body I am in pain everyday.
I try to think at least I can still see out of my eyes and try to stay positive.
