HI There! I'm 61'years old and diagnosed with RA in 1965. I guess you could call me a veteran. My left wrist was fused at age 15. My metacarpal joints in both hands were replaced in 1986 & 1987. I had thumbs fused as well. I've taken most available medications except for the biologics. Although I'm disabled I do still walk i only use wheelchair for longer journeys. I have one daughter, 32 and have been married 33 years. I have very supportive people around me which helps strengthen and encourage me to keep living the best life possible.
