As a newly diagnosed patient in 2000, I scoured the web for information about Rheumatoid arthritis. Other than the Arthritis Foundation, I didn't find much. And other than in their forums, I didn't find ANY personal stories.
So, for my regular readers and any newly diagnosed RA patients who have stumbled across my blog, I am sharing my story now.
Rather than create another label for RA, I'm going to use this article as a list of all my disease related posts. As they are published I will link to them from here.
- Photo Shoot at My House!
- The Beginning
- Getting Worse AFTER my 1st Diagnosis
- 2nd Diagnosis
- The Difference Enbrel Makes for Me
- RA, Pregnancy and Enbrel
