Hi! I Was Diagnosed With Ra Last August And Boy Has My Life Changed!

Hi everyone. I would definitely benefit from your wisdom on the subject - while keeping it positive! Looking for support while dealing with this isolated disease that I was diganosed with last August. I have been on Enbrel for 6 months and know it is not a miracle cure, but it has helped out a lot. It is difficult to put into words to make others without RA understand what I am going through and not be so hard on myself! I have two young daughters and a DH and want to be at my best for them. DH is supportive but has a hard time seeing that I am sick sometimes.

I have also battled Graves/Graves Eye disease 12 years ago so I am an autoimmune disease magnet, so it seems.

I am grateful for my friends and family, but I feel like I have hit the gold mine in finding others like myself that have RA!

Looking forward to networking with you and seeing what works for you all.

Keep on movin' those joints and be well!
