What the hell happened to me?

Woke up Nov, 11 2014 and couldn't get out of bed. In one night went from very healthy 63 yrs old man in good shape very active, to feeble old 95 yrs old. At least that's what it feels like. If not for prednisone I would be completely disabled. Took 3 mos. to get diagnosed with RA. Been on numerous drugs since, non seem to work very well and some are very expensive. Exercising regularly, swimming laps in the pool only thing that keeps me going. That and my new grandaughter Sylvia. Being in a pool takes away the gravity that is in flaming my joints. I need to become a scuba diver or an astronaut.
