I was diagnosed 7 years ago with negative serum RA, I just now have tested positive for RA. Now there is really no questions. I am a PE teacher and coach. I have refused to give up my joys and passions to this disease! But I have to say there are times I don't have a choice but to listen to my body and brain. I am a fighter but at times I just cry when I am by myself because I am so sad this is happening to me. I was a college athlete I took care of myself and now this??? Taking orencia monthly, plaquinel, prednisone 5 mg and an anti depressant. Most of the time I feel pretty well but the last few months my Achilles have been killing me😁 If I sit down after work for a while, when I get up it is so painful to walk! Try to stay happy but sometimes just tired!! Yawned all day at work in this heat wave!!
I don't know if this helps anyone else but this is me 😋
