My arthrirtis started when I was 23 years old. I was so scared of the pain, I did not go to the doctor. After a year of constant pain I went into remission. Then 5 months before i Got married it came back with vengance. Within a month I was in a wheelchair. Now 5 years later I have a 3 year old son (whom I managed to breastfeed for 7 months) I am still in Pain and I can't run the 5 miles i used to run each day but i am blessed. My pain makes me humble, My family makes me happy and my life is full with things I never gave much thought to before.
