Another patient’s story about what Rheumatoid disease is really like
Last month, I shared what it’s like to live with full-blown Rheumatoid disease, taking the gloves off. To provide a glimpse into a world that most will never experience, I described a few hours of trying to move and manage with people who don’t understand what the disease is really like, some more compassionate than others. There are 88 comments on the post, many more in social media, plus private email replies. This allows us to share experiences of thousands of patients, over time. Patricia gave permission to share her powerful tale with you.
With increased awareness of Rheumatoid Disease will come greater understanding of what patients endure. I hope you’ll participate in the first Rheumatoid Awareness Day – read more here.
