So you have Rheumatoid Arthritis and your life has changed forever and so has everyone around you.  Their feelings for you have changed, the way they look at you has changed and the way they treat you has changed.  Most of these changes haven’t been for the best and you’re wondering what have you done wrong.  All that you’ve done is gotten a disease that you didn’t ask for.  You are not responsible for the changes that are made in your life, Rheumatoid Arthritis is.  What they don’t seem to understand, “you’re not your disease”, you have a disease.  No one sets out to become ill with a chronic disease that will change them forever but it has happened and you’re suffering the consequences in ways you never knew possible.

Finally being diagnosed was a very painful reality but I had no idea what it all meant really.  I had no clue what Rheumatoid Arthritis was and like so many thought is was arthritis at first.  Silly me, was I in for a learning experience.  The doctor did his best to explain it but that didn’t go very well because there’s too much to know and I actually had to feel my way through things for myself.  My doctor is a good doctor, I’m still with him today so he’s been there through the long hall.
