Linda’s Fight Like A Girl Story (Rheumatoid Arthritis)

Linda's Story (Rheumatoid Arthritis)Rheumatoid Arthritis hurts! I found that out 3 years ago when I was finally diagnosed – the pain had a REAL name! RA has forced me to leave my job as a teacher aide in a home for very disturbed youth. I am permanently disabled now and miss working with kids I really enjoyed helping. I can’t do many things that I once took for granted – holding, opening, pulling items that are used daily. I have been on many meds, Prednisone, Methotrexate, Humira and Remicade to name a few. Unfortunately, their side effects outweighed the benefits. Life is tough, but I am tougher!! We, as women, need to support each other no matter what the illness is. We are the Sisterhood of Support for all those who suffer!
