Hi. My Name is Stacy and I Have RA



rheumatoid-awareness-ribbon

 

So I have a confession to make..and this time? It’s a serious one. I have RA. Better known as Rheumatoid Arthritis. To make that worse? I have untreated RA. I don’t have health insurance and right now, it’s not in the cards. Yesterday, it hit me hard. Harder than it has in years. I’m okay, but only because I knew what to do. Right now, there’s a free arthritis guide that’s available. The last time it was up for grabs, I ordered myself a copy. I’ll tell you. I’m really glad that I did. I learned about what foods can trigger pain and inflammation, what exercises work best for me and what moves can help curb stiffness. It talks about what treatment options are available out there and helps you figure out which one is best for you, how to deal with knee pain (because my knees always hurt badly) and some other good pieces of info. It has genuinely been a very big help in my life. It’s never available for long, so if you’re thinking of requesting your own free arthritis guide, make sure you do it soon.

Request your own HERE if you’re interested.

I guess the point of this? To simply say that I will not let the RA win. I will fight until I can’t fight any longer and if you too are suffering from it? Join me in fighting. It can be so…so…disheartening to have to rely on others for help when we’re at an age where we shouldn’t have to. Yes, today, I had to have help drawing my own bath, removing my clothing to get in that bath and then help out of the tub. (Many thanks to my Butt Bench to the help it provides me..check out my review HERE.). I’m 30. I shouldn’t have to ask for help. I should be able to run with my child. I should be able to hug her w/out pain. To learn jiu-jitsu with my fiance. To live the normal life that my heart longs to live.
Right now though? I can’t.

 

That doesn’t mean I’ll stop trying. I will keep trying, and possibly keep failing, but by God, I will try.

 

So from me to all of you other RA Warriors…

 

Keep trying. Don’t give up and Gentle Hugs.

    I hope you can get to a doctor soon and get some relief for the pain and stiffness; you really should sooner than later. I totally know what you’re going through. I was diagnosed with Juvenile RA at 12 and after finally going into remission at 16, then having a flare up when I got pregnant at 23, let’s just say it’s been a long 15 years of pain, medicine, doctors, blood work, and more medicine. And I had my right hip replaced two years ago, so that’s helped but now the other hip needs to be done.
