This is me
From the heart
Stuck with RA
Mary’s Arthritis started when I was newly diagnosed with RA and given the added bonus of two cancers in the same year. But it was hard to sustain as my situation worsened. Coping took all my time.
Learning to accept a shift in my reality took time. I had rarely been sick. I raised a family. As an RN I worked surgical cardiac critical care. I had been a nurse in the Air Force. I ran a photography business for 25 years and expected to work another 20. A reality shift took time. I now have this vision of the Hobbit living in the Shire.
the Hobbit Life is compatible with writing and researching.
I see that there is a lot of information out in the www. However, a lot of it is the same old thing and much is dated or faulty. RA is now considered 60% genetic. The rest unknown. The age group is now considered 35-65 with some younger and some older.
I see a void in the information on Rheumatoid Arthritis.
