What Does Living with RA Feel Like?

How do you go about explaining to those who don’t live with RA, how it is to live to with it? Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune condition which expresses itself so differently for everyone. And it can be even more difficult to answer to the question, posed to you by someone who does not live with a chronic condition like RA, what it’s like to live with this condition.

    It feels like I go to a bar at night, go on a bender, piss somebody off, get beat up… wake up in the morning feeling like somebody beat me up, having a massive headache and I’m in pain, buuuut I forgot all about my evenings escaped! Not. As. Much. Fun

    Annnnd repeat. I just can’t seem to learn! 🙂
