      I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…….I can honestly say I have learned more about my disease from you Kelly (and all the other Warriors) than ANY Doctor I have ever been to…..your hard work is so appreciated, I don’t know what I would have done without it….Thank you….thank your family and I understand what you mean about the frustration of managing a site like this…..it’s an incredible amount of work….you do it well Lady!!!….I tell my Doctor’s ….point blank….”if you want to know more about what I go through….put down your medical books and check out RA Warrior.com…you might learn something new…..ya…..I’m a little outspoken…lol…thanks Kelly.

      Kelly, it amazes me how much you do for the rest of us, you are truly an angel. So is Katie Beth, what a great example of a selfless teenager. Others could learn a thing or two from her!

      I depend on my family as well, my daughter and grand daughter. Don’t know what I would do without them. And I depend on this site for information and for validation. Because of you, I know I’m not crazy! I’ll never forget not being able to brush my teeth, thought what on earth could be wrong with my body. My hand isn’t broken, neither is my arm, why can’t I get my hand to move the brush up and down. Pick up a glass, no…..turn a door knob, no….brush my hair, …are you joking??? No one could get this without living it. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.

      Thanks Kelly for all you have done and still continue to do. Thought? (and I’m not a computer/website guy)Would there be any benefit to separating the current RAWarrior site into two sites? Like one for all of the information and blog posts and another dedicated solely to the onset stories. One could be RAWarrior.com and the other RAWarriorvoices.com. Just a thought, but I don’t know if it’s feasible or if it would make life easier or more difficult. Blessings.

      Kelly and Katie Beth,
      I’ve had RA for a year now and I’m. 71yrs.old. I have been reading your site for the past year. Its hard to explain how you and all the stories have helped me cope with this disease. I’m a retired nurse and had no understanding of how RA affected people. The flares are so painful, the stories helped me more than anything. I am so grateful for this site. Thanks,Sandy

      Thank you thank you thank you! I know now that I am not alone. It is so reassuring to find out about all the things my consultant didn’t bother telling me or dismissed as nothing to do with R/A.I live in England and have a fantastic rhuemy nurse who seems to know more than my consultant! However I am still grateful to her as I have now had a ct scan and pulmonary lung test done after having breathing problems for a long time now. My philosophy has always been that there is always someone worse off than you and it always stands true. We really are luckier than a lot of people it’s just that we don’t always know who they are. Thanks again Kelly and all my lovely new R/A friends for all the help you are giving me just by reading your posts. Sent with lots of love for you all. Lynn
