A Positive Attitude When You Live With Chronic Pain

Along my long ten-year journey (many of those years in pain and in ill health without diagnosis) with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, I have learned more about myself, my capabilities and my compassions than I ever have in all my nearly 34 years on this earth. I know that I will never be the person that I used to be, but why would I want to go back?

    Fantastic inspiring blog!! I too keep a positive attituide about my RA, I figure I have it, get on with it!!!. The Doctors/Nurses/rheumatologists are keeping such a close eye on me that if anything does go wrong, it is picked up almost instantly!!

    Again, like yourself, I have my down days and why has this happened to me days, and I cant wear my pretty shoes, I’ll be p****d days. My RA is now part of who I am!! I may mean that some days I feel great, and other days I have to wear my wrist guards (nick named my ninja fighting gloves) to help me do the simplist of things!! If I can fight ninjas while having RA, I can do anything!!

    Your an inspration RA guy, I shall be keeping my positive attitude for a long time and not let others who think RA is a walk in the park get me down!!!
