Today two years ago I got my RA diagnose. Two years! Feels like a very long time ago! When I got my diagnose I felt so relieved to finally have a name for what was wrong with my joints and I felt hopeful that the medications would do the trick. Since then I've tried several medications, one of which I really thought worked out… now I've switched medications again, or is about to later in August.
I've had countless of doctor's appointments, not to mention cortisone shots! Now I'm not even worried when I go to the doctor to get them. I know it will hurt a bit but I also know that afterwards it will feel much better. 🙂
I've still not come to terms with my RA mentally. Some days I'm just so sick of all these issues that I don't know what to do with myself, but most days I'm okay…
I'm trying to be positive about this new medication I'm going to get but some part of me is also worried that it might not work and I'm going to continue my "finding-the-correct-medication-journey". I try to be positive though and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this medication will do the trick. I just want to be able to live "normal" again and not have to think about finding a chair closeby because my legs and feet will hurt otherwise.
Well, overall life is pretty fantastic despite everything and I just have to stay positive because I refuse to think that I won't be able to live my life as I want to. The RA will be controlled one way or the other eventually, the other way around is just unacceptable to me!
