Normally, I get a huge kick out of reading the search terms that bring people to my blog. Some of them are absolutely hilarious and strangely inappropriate. But today, I wish I had contact info for the one I just saw.
“Does RA ever get better?”
Yes, my friend, it does.
It is such a shock to get a diagnosis like that. I could expound on that forever but you all know exactly what I’m talking about.
My first reaction to it was deny, deny, deny. And then take a long boat ride down my favorite river in Egypt. And then more denying!
But eventually, once the shock wears off and the treatments kick in, you get some relief. And once you start to get the physical relief, you can begin to search out the emotional relief.
It is entirely possible to live a very fun and full life with rheumatoid arthritis.
So yes, it does get better. Virtual hug!
