All because of Rheumatoid. I can...

Pull up to the gas pump in the pouring rain, take my cell out, and call the attendant to fill my van....

Cruise the grocery in my power chair and never have to shift from foot to aching foot while standing in line...

Meet the most handsome, muscled hunk in the store, bat my eyelashes and say, "Hi, may I borrow your height"...

Rest all day and read a really good book cover to cover...

Never be expected to help push someone stuck in the snow..

Find a seat on a crowded city bus...

Look mighty fine wearing drop dead gorgeous four inch heels and not suffer awful foot ache at the end of the evening cause I am now a roller..

What advantage over all the able-bodied people do you now enjoy?????

Keep your chin up, do not hide your rheumatoid, and smile, smile, smile, ask for what you need (most prople have no idea that your arms can not reach, etc), and give them a hearty, sincere Thank you...

Kind regards,

judith
