Hello everyone. I am 40 years old, and have had RA since 2012. The start of my diagnosis was rough, but I am currently on leflunomde and Enbrel and both are working pretty well. I also have supportive friends, family, and fiance, and doctors who generally listen and respond well. I am grateful for all of this and realize I am quite fortunate. I also know that my symptoms could worsen at anytime.
I am getting married in September 2017, and have planned a fairly large wedding. We are keeping everything on location, so hopefully that will make things easier. I am able to control my pain pretty well with 800 mg ibuprofen, but I still can succumb to fatigue, especially after a few days of lots of activity. Generally, I don’t do social activities more than twice a week for this reason.
I was just wondering if anyone else has had experience and may have tips on how to navigate an exciting and fun but big, tiring, and complex event with RA. Thank you!
