I've had rheumatoid arthritis for 17 years, in my mind as a child I thought I'd have it until I was a teenager and be done with it. I thought adulthood would magically transform my sorry joints.
Unfortunately I was wrong but I am now taking real charge of this disease and actively kicking it's ass! I hope!! Currently I'm in the early stages of rituximab treatment, a little scared and unsure but I made the decision and I'm now running with it .... Ish! First few weeks felt fab! I think I'm on the slow come
Down from the steroids but not feeling awful as I normally would this time of year! Fingers crossed 2016 will be a little less painful and a lot more full of life!!
