Having rheumatoid arthritis as you know can be very challenging.  There is never a day that goes by that we know how we’re going to feel. It is unpredictable and it is a challenge for us.

There can be days when we are surprised there are no symptoms and we are actually overjoyed because for the majority of us that hardly ever happens.  Still most of us expect to have pain every day even though it is the level of pain that we can’t predict.  We can’t predict what joint will hurt or how long the pain will last.  We can’t predict if our present medication will take care of the pain or if we have to prepare ourselves for another new bout of meds and if those will work.  We can’t predict if there will be side effects whether mild or severe from our medication.  We can’t predict if there will be permanent damage done to us in any form either from our meds or the disease itself.

So you see this disease is unpredictable but we do what we have to in order to bring as much predictability into our lives so we don’t lose the fight against rheumatoid arthritis without at least trying to win it.

What do you think? Is it unpredictable to you?  Be Blessed.
