I'm 19 and I've been diagnosed with RA three years ago. I was naive and believed that only old people got arthritis but boy was I wrong! I feel like sometimes no one around me understands why I get so angry or upset when I can't do something I really want to do. The RA currently resides in all major joints in my body! At first I refused to take any form of medication too scared of the side effects. I'm currently taking 6 different medications for pain and to deal with the symptoms of the other meds. Anyone else feel like they are constantly taking pills? I wouldn't usually do something like this as I like to keep my complaints about my RA to myself but it's got a bit too much for me later and I'm struggling to find the bright side of this situation. Really I'm just looking for some reassurance that it does get better for us RA sufferers.
