Welcome to this site. Glad to hear you have a positive attitude to this decease. I too am an 'older lady' having had erosive RA for 32 years, have learnt to live alongside it. I have a very supportive family and adorable grandchildren, who keep me young at heart. Wishing you all the very best. Hugs G. X

Welcome, it's always good to hear from people who live with RA in a positive way. Pop in from time to time and cheer us up. Hugs.

Welcome, it is good to hear from someone that continues to be able to enjoy their life and share with their extended family. I hope you continue to post here and are able to encourage some of the others who are more recent on their journey that there can be a good outcome and mangeable symptoms. I always dread answering questions from a newbie that i answer as positively as i can and then i get the "great!, so you are ok now?" question and i really hate having to answer at that point. Great to have you here.
