RA-Rheumatoid Arthritis

I have a chronic disease I can’t control
I am forced to fill this horrible roll
I hurt, I cry and sadly have to go along
It is not my fault, I did nothing wrong
The blame I feel is so unfair
It seems no one understands or maybe just don’t care
The guilt just kills me day after day
It weighs me down more than I can ever say
The pain is not fake, my life it can steal
This disease is unimaginable, makes life feel so surreal
Yet I go on because I have no choice
I yell out loud but no one hears my voice
As I desperately try hard to explain
How much this disease causes physical and emotional pain
Yet my heart hurt and my eyes show what I’m going through
With this disease that’s hurting me and you
You see RA does not discriminate and has no shame
It is not me that’s wrong but RA that’s to blame
So as I look for understanding to help ease my way
Say that you’re with me and I hope you mean what you say!
For the many, many warriors of Rheumatoid Arthritis, I understand.
Be Blessed.

Having Rheumatoid Arthritis-I Am Not My Disease

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.

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.
