I try not to get cross with People I meet when I'm out but have now been suffering with RA for just over 18 months. Even though my medication is under control at last ( MTX ) I still have Pain in my hands & feet most days which is controlled by pain killers. My point is that when you meet people you always smile say hello et, etc, because you don't want to pour out your soul so to speak about how you feel & what is wrong so I greet people butting on a brave face but nearly every time the reply you get is " You Look Well" so I just smile & pass some comment about retirement. I wish sometimes that there was something to show with RA not that you want any sympathy but that Friends & other people you meet could perhaps see how you truly feel.
