Hi there, I have been dealing with RA for about 2yrs now and am finally seeing a good rheumatologist this Monday. I am a little scared about all the medications people with RA are prescribed; I especially do not want to take a steroid. Being the sole care taker for my 2 year old son day in and out I am especially nervous about side effects. Boy, I guess I am just REAL nervous about having a disease.... As I should be?!
