RA-Rheumatoid Arthritis Road To Loneliness

sad-silhouette-1429626-639x930

One thing I realize after being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, it is a very lonely disease.  So many of the people in your life seem to disappear over time.  The ones that offer their dying support and seem to understand what you’re going through don’t really understand at all and they leave one by one time and time again.

I Have Rheumatoid Arthritis So What Now

crocus-280276_640

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.

RA-I Have Rheumatoid Arthritis

I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, a horrible, debilitating and life altering disease.  One that has changed my life in so many ways but I have to say not in ways that I’m sure is as bad as some other sufferers lives have been changed.  Rheumatoid Arthritis is a devastating disease that can take years to be diagnosed for so many of us.  Thus the long journey began.

RA- Rheumatoid Arthritis, We Are Victims

sorrow-699608_640

Do you hurt so much you wonder if it’s possible for pain to actually last this long and be this relenting, powerful and debilitating.  Well this is what having Rheumatoid Arthritis does to its victims.  That’s right, victims.  Anything that hurt someone as much, as often and as long means we are its victims.

RA-Rheumatoid Arthritis’ Harsh Reality

girl-940707_640

I have Rheumatoid Arthritis a disease many really don’t know
It is harsh, it can be deadly, what a horrifying blow,
And it brings uncertainty, grief and so much loneliness
But we can’t forget about some of our biggest tests,
There’s depression, sorrow and the ongoing misunderstanding
That this is a disease that is so demanding,
Yes, disease I know that may surprise you
It is a very serious condition, this is true,
Pain is a constant and the fatigue just won’t go away
It’s in our lives each and every day,
We strive to make it with all that we’re going through
But many will still ask “What’s wrong with you”,
Life with RA can’t be explained in simple words
So it’s not getting the attention we feel it deserves,
Are we seeking attention, pity or any of this
No, not at all, our lives are not worth the risk,
The bottom line, Rheumatoid Arthritis is a horrendous disease
One that affects us all, more than anyone sees!

Be Blessed.

RA-The Battle To Survive

heart-1882827_640

How does Rheumatoid Arthritis affects your life and your fight to maintain.  Do you feel weak when in reality the battle we fight makes us strong.  You are strong in your weakest moments.

Are you filled with guilt! Guilt because you aren’t who you use to be emotionally nor how you were physically.  The guilt takes over because your functions have become limited and doing things aren’t as easy as it use to be if at all possible so being unable too sends you down a road filled with guilt that’s long and hard.  Guilty because you are faced with feelings of letting your family down even though it’s out of your control.  The constant pain we’re in keeps us locked in a world controlled by Rheumatoid Arthritis.  It dictates what our days are to be.  We often feel or want things to be our way but this disease has other ideas.  We try our best to fight our way through the pain but the majority of the time, RA wins.  It is true we may fight through but in the end, RA is the true winner.

Normality, when something happens that shakes up your.  You look forward to returning to normality, meaning the usual happenings of everyday life.  Our state of being being, something that is just as expected.  But this is not to be when you’re living with Rheumatoid Arthritis.  It has made us forget what is expected and to be prepared for the unexpected, a life now filled with uncertainty and a whole new normal.

Have you sat down weary or maybe stood in the mirror, looked at yourself and wondered “Why did I get this disease”.  Yes I’m sure we’ve all at some point wondered that but in reality we know it was the Will of God.  Not for punishment but because this is just a part of life and we just happened to be the ones to get Rheumatoid Arthritis.
