Rheumatoid Arthritis, our chronic and complicated disease.  With it comes pain that we feel each and every day.  Pain that fights us as vigorously as we fight it.  Still explaining just how much this causes us seem to go unaccepted and misunderstood by so many causing us to fall into a pit of ISOLATION.  Do you find yourself saying “I feel so alone in this fight” and you have no where or no one to turn to.  This is what so many sufferers of RA have to face, the isolation that comes with having this dreaded disease.

Rheumatoid Arthritis-Why We Cry

late-riser-149016_640

Rheumatoid Arthritis takes us through a myriad of changes that are physical and mental. We never know from one day to the next what to expect being a sufferer of this disease because any single day may never be the same and the other. Having it makes us vulnerable to the devastation it causes and we know we have to suffer through whatever it throws at us.  This realization brings tears that many may never, ever see because for many of us our tears are shed in secret.  When our tears are seen, there are those who question Why!

When I cry, I wish I could go back to life before Rheumatoid Arthritis
When I cry, I long for what I can no longer do
When I cry, I feel the pain in my body and my mind
When I cry, I feel I’ve lost myself to Rheumatoid Arthritis
When I cry, I want others to Understand the burden I bear
When I cry, It’s because it is all that I can do
When I cry, I’m so emotionally broken
When I cry, I want others to understand why I cry
When I cry, I need loving arms to hold me
When I cry, I want this disease to be UNDERSTOOD 
When I cry, IT’S NOT ALWAYS FOR MYSELF!!

Through the emotional turmoil we face and the tears that come, we have to accept the reality that our lives are forever changed.  We see how we truly are and what this disease has done and can do to us.  We cry for hope, understanding, love and comfort. This is Why We Cry.

Be Blessed.
