I've just read "One Step At A Time" by Marie Joseph. It's her journey with RA/RD bringing up a family in 1950's Lancashire. All I will say is, it was extremely entertaining and insightful. It also references how things have changed (or not changed) in the NHS and treatment of RA over the past 60 years.
You can download it for a couple of quid on ibooks/Amazon/Kindle. I got it on ibooks and it downloaded in 10 seconds flat.
I just thought i'd share her story with you - I really enjoyed the read.
Have a good day y'all happy reading!
