New on the block. I have RA since stress drove me into my inheritance of this autoimmune condition then a flu exacerbated it into agonizing screaming burning hell with only my cervical spine bendable. Fight I did. New drug seems to be working but the dog works well too. Walking is the world to me now as I get out and have built back some muscle from five years in bed and wishing I were dead. Diet matters. Vegan helps greatly and cashew nuts build up muscle. My hips hurt today, normal but worse today. Fighting to stop my thin bones from getting thinner with calcium and D3 and risedronate sodium when I remember. Neck pain all the time. Tired often. Anyone else fighting back? I can say I was told I would be in a wheelchair and a care home by 2012 but it is nearly 2017 and I am still moving around, painful and not much time to do stuff before I tire out and hurt but hey, way to go.
Piccie of my lovely friend who saved me from a wheelchair. Love him
