I'm 28 and was diagnosed with RA in my hands, wrists, knees, ankles and feet 5 months ago, my life has changed completely. I can't do much of which I took for granted before and have to rely on other people to help me do the simplest of things, like fastening my bra or opening a bottle.
I am sick of being told "you're too young to have that". I know I'm young, but that doesn't help. It's like people don't understand, they just judge the outward appearance and have no idea what I am going through or how much pain I am in.
Has anyone else had the same experience?
P.S. Sorry for the rant!
