RA – Rheumatoid Arthritis-The Anger Inside


Angry, who are you angry at, have you thought much about that? Those that fail to understand your circumstances. ( Maybe angry is a little harsh in this instance). Are you angry that Rheumatoid Arthritis has come into your life and changed it forever?  How about sitting alone thinking about Rheumatoid Arthritis and how it has taken over your life while also realizing this is your cross to bear maybe with help or maybe alone.  Do you think about that a lot?  Do you sit and think how your life has become one that’s filled with pain, loneliness and uncertainty?  How do you handle it!  I myself thankfully blog, putting my thoughts in print for all of us.  You see what I’m feeling isn’t just about me, it is something that I’m sure all of you are feeling as well.  Are you as angry at this disease as I am for entering my life?  Anger that has built up over time just as it has changed our lives over time but it is something we cannot change and have to live with.

RA – Our Lives With Rheumatoid Arthritis-From Us To You


My life is no longer my own, taken over by a terrible disease
Try listening to me, hear me and understand what I’m saying please;

You see what no one seems to understand “Rheumatoid Arthritis is really to blame”
For how my life has changed and No, I’m not the same;

Through the pain I hide my tears
Through the tears I hide my fears;

Through the fatigue I can barely stand
Still everyone looks at me with their demands:

I take medication that is suppose to ease all of this
But it surely seems something is still amiss:

Though many refuse to see my life is filled with tremendous pain
As I’m fighting as hard as I can just trying to maintain;

I’m tired, worn and ravished with emotions while still being so misunderstood
When all that I want is love, comfort, understanding, Please If Only You Could;

I just want a life that I can live, one that isn’t so hard to bear
So if you were with me and by me it would show me just how much you really do care;

Life with Rheumatoid Arthritis is so unpredictable and so unforgiving
Even through all of this, my life is still truly worth living;

But one thing I know for sure, RA is a disease that will never end
It will drive our lives through hopeless times trying its best to win;

My hope is that someday everyone will come to know
Just how hard this disease is for me and it won’t let me go;

I’m only asking that you understand my suffering is real and true
And there is nothing in my life I’m changing to make my Truths more interesting to you;

Finally, To Rheumatoid Arthritis, I Hate you much more than my words can ever say
And my hope is that someday you will be gone and that’s totally and forever away!

Be Blessed.
