Life is not easy and everyone is faced with obstacles. Think about the lyrics from the theme song from the old TV show, Friends. “So no one told your life was going to be this way. Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s DOA. It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear, Well, it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year.” Life with chronic illness is kind of like that. There are good days and there are bad days.
Like many of you, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia have touched my life. They have changed my life and they have made it crazy at times. When I look in the mirror, I don’t see the same person I saw four years ago. I have changed in more ways that I could have ever imaged before chronic illness came into my life.
What I am is a mother, a legal assistant, a health blogger, and patient advocate. What I am not is superhuman. I am here to give an honest view on live with RA and FM from my perspective. If it helps just one person, I have done more than I thought I could.
