There’s Always Rheum For Improvement

A Detailed Account of a Young Persons Battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis

At the age of 22 I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I did not know much about the disease but it seemed my life would never be the same again. After months of despair, loosing a loved one and giving up my dream job I am finally coming to terms with my condition. I realised that I am not alone and with the help of incredibly supportive family and friends I can live a normal life and will not be beaten by this. I hope in reading my stories you too those who have been diagnosed will realise you are not alone and those who know someone will get an idea of how their friend/relative may be feeling and the challenges we face. Now 23, I am ready to share my story with you beautiful people (be ready for one hell of a rollercoaster ride!)

    I have had JRA since I was 3, now at 48 , I am just coming to terms with it. Learning to accept that I am not my disease, that I am Heather, a mom, an artistist, a nana, a wife, friend, a woman. I am not my drugs or pain. but an optimist and vsionairy. I now know that every day I put my legs on the floor under my own power is a good day. Today is a good day.
