I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in February of 2012. My great aunt had it and my dad’s cousin has it. My mom tells me that they told my great aunt to take aspirin and move to a warmer climate. She became all crippled up.

I knew what you could look like with RA, but I had no idea what you could feel like. I have been looking on Pinterest for sayings about RA and pain. I am sorry that there are so many people who have it, but I am also glad that they share their feelings. I am glad to know that there are other people thinking and feeling the same things I am.

I also have chronic back pain. I have had surgery once and will probably need another one here soon. I want to stay upbeat and happy as much as I can during all of this. I hope I can encourage someone else.

  1. Sometimes it’s enough just post something letting others know that you are having similar pains, and maybe mentioning what helps… There are people like you looking around for consolidation. Good luck!
