I’m southern girl at heart born to do the best that I can in life. From Atlanta and love soulful music since it is so relaxing, love to meditate. I have people in my life that keep me motivated and loved. I live everyday with Rheumatoid Arthritis and my site is about living everyday with it and I wanted to share my views with others and enjoy the views of others. Together I believe we can make a difference just by sharing our stories. Be Blessed.

Thanks for joining my followers in my new journey with Ankylosing Spondylitis. They treat it just like RA and I am close to starting Humira soon. Any advice?
December 7, 2016 at 2:46 am
Hi. I haven’t tried Humira but I have tried Enbrel which is pretty much the same and it worked well for me for a while. I have actually been on 7 medications with Rituxan being my last and it’s doing well. I was Blessed enough to catch my disease before it got bad so I’m not as bad as a lot people. I will say if you have to give yourself injections, do in in your stomach and it won’t hurt as much. You may have irritation at the injection site but benadryl or cortisone cream will help. Good luck and get back in touch with me when you start your Humira to let me know how you are doing. God Bless.

Oh my goodness, this is exactly what I’ve wanted to do in regards to your page (a v close similarity)…..
I’ve had the idea/thought in the back of my head for the last year or so but not had the time, bravery or proper chance to plan and initiate….
I’ve got too much brain fog going on at present along with very slow keyboard skills
Hope to be in contact soon

It’s great for relieving stress. Believe it or not when I hurt and can’t sleep and as painful as it gets, I take out pen and start writing from my heart. What I write about may not be what I’m going through but know that others are. But in reality we’ve all experienced some of what I’ve written about. Wishing you the best. HAPPY New Year and thanks for reading my blog.

Sometimes I have to save your articles in a special file I made just for you because they are so TRUE and so REAL, I can’t face them. You are one of the best writers about RA with whom I have read. You really tap into the LONLINESS and the GUILT and the loss of hope and dreams. I am not sure what is worse: the pain in the body or the pain in my heart. I am so different – we are all so different – than we once were. Thank you for telling our story. I have been meaning to say this for a year or so now… but i was just too sick and I know you GET THAT.

Hi Kimberly first I’m so sorry you’re not doing well but I hope you feel better soon. Then I want to thank you for following me for such a long time. I’m happy that I’m making.a difference in your life. I truly get how you feel because when it’s all said and done, we know each other better than those without RA. May God Bless you and bring you some relief.

I was finally diagnosed a few months ago after having joint pain and stiffness for a few years. Finally asked my doctor to test for RA because I found out it goes back all the way to my great-great grandmother’s generation in my family (though it seems to have mercifully skipped my mother—she already has MS to contend with). My RA factor was off the charts, so I was diagnosed with RA and fibromyalgia. I just found your blog, and it looks like you have some really great content! Can’t wait to read more! -Chloe

Hi and thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I’m so sorry about your diagnosis and I hope you are better. I’m having a difficult time with medication suffering right now from a reaction at the site where I give myself shots. I don’t think I’m going to be able to stick with this one which is new for me, Actemra. Anyway my blog is not always about me personally but each one of us that suffer from this dreaded disease. I know what we all go through. God Bless you always.
