Hello to all:
I am a sufferer of RA for the past 14 years. I am now 25 years old and was diagnosed at the age of 11. I consider myself very fortunate that it has caused me few problems until the past year. My RA has become considerably worse over the past 12 months and I have gone through multiple therapies and have been in a lot of pain and very ill.
I seem to have leveled off somewhat and have just started taking Methotrexate by I.M. I know that I am not the only one who suffers from this. I am looking for others who can offer advice or insight and most of all friends who can relate. Friends and family try but I think until you feel even a fraction of the pain assocatied with this disease, you simply can't comprehend.
It took me a while to even find this message board and I can't say I will be back to check. If there is someone out there who can offer anything or anyone that I can help, please feel free to e -mail me at Tattoo9631@yahoo.com. I always reply and your taking the time to simply drop a note would mean the world.
God bless to all.
