Poem by Friend of Rheumatoid Arthritis Warrior

Counting the Ways Rheumatoid Arthritis Affects My Life…

I am so glad to bring you this treat, a poem written by Rissa. She has Palindromic Rheumatism, a form of RA, which you will read more about here on Rheumatoid Arthritis Warrior.

I love the way she gives so many details of life with Rheumatoid Arthritis in so few words. She certainly gives a window where those who don’t have RA can peek into a life with Rheumatoid Arthritis:

The terrorizing pain; the unexpected disability; the frustration with numerous medical tests; the ridiculous lack of understanding, even from doctors…

Thank you to Rissa! You give us a lighthearted view of such a heavy-hearted topic. You lift us up today.
