So this is my first foray into blogworld. I read lots of them so I hope writing one won’t be too painful.
Let’s get the niceties out of the way- I’m AJ. So nice to meet you. I’m 29. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis. Some days I don’t feel great, other days I forget I have it. It’s been quite an experience- some people really let it define them and are content to accept limitations. I am not, much to the chagrin of my doctor. I’ve looked and looked for blogs written by people who have RA that are my age and all I find are people who are miserable, depressing, and content to wallow. I have nothing in common with these people. I will not let RA change any part of my life. I like to think that I am one stubborn bitch. So, at the urging of several friends, this is my attempt to fill that void.
Prepare to hear about what I go through with my RA as well as the things I refuse to give up. Actually, you’ll hear more about what I won’t give up because those things are way more important to me. I will go ahead and apologize for a couple of things: I’m kinda snobby, I like to cuss, and I hate Blue Cross Blue Shield. I will (seldom) admit to being way more sensitive about things than I should be so please be nice.
