First decent day and dusted off the sunbed but where did spring go ? Seriously though I went to a meeting of a local group and gosh it was noisy with laughter and chatter and an awful handbag in a raffle that one hoped they did'nt win.
I realised how lucky I am that RA has no impact really on my life now, the odd blip but nothing really awful. I know that medications do affect people so differently and we are so lucky in the UK to have the NHS which does provide some extremly expensive ones that do improve lives.
I recently saw a post that implied that RA was down to poor life style choices and was very upset by it. At that meeting were very young people who had had it for a long time, without doubt it could not be down to lifestyle choices. In my case I simply have Auto Immune Diseases but even if I had smoked 60 a day, washed chips down with champagne (I wish) I still did not deserve this disease. No one does, its just down to an unknown factor that one day I hope will be switched off. So in conclusion lets all hope that the real cause will in a few years be discovered, in my case its likely genetic and the one size fits all medication developed so everyone will be more able and without pain.
