    I have had RA for 8 years and the main support system that I have is through online groups. I am an active member in a Yahoo! group for RA and I keep in touch with fellow members on networking sites like myspace and facebook.
    My rheumatologist never gave me any ideas about joining online groups. I found them on my own and it has helped tremendously. I think it would be great if rheumatologists gave their patients online support contact information. Everyone knows exactly what you are going through and are very informative if you have any questions.

    I know what you mean about your rheumatologist. I’m sure mine is one of those that treats the illness and not the person.
