HI, I'VE GOT A QUESTION ABOUT FILING FOR DISABILITY. I HAVE HAD RA FOR 3 YRS THIS COMING UP BIRTHDAY. WHEN I WAS FIRST FEELING THE ONSET OF SWOLLEN JOINTS AND ACHING BODY AND JUST STARTING TO GO SEE A DOCTOR I FILED FOR DISABILITY. OF COURSE I WAS DENIED. HEY, I WAS A 26 YR OLD HEALTHY LOOKING FEMALE. I WAS IN SO MUCH PAIN THAT MOST DAYS ID JUST LIE THERE LIKE I WAS DIEING. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. WELL I STARTED TO GET TREATMENT FOR RA. ITS BEEN A FEW YEARS NOW, BUT IM STARTING TO REALLY NOT FEEL VERY UPBEAT AND ENERGETIC FOR SOME REASON. I DONT KNOW IF ITS DUE TO THE WEATHER OR IF ITS THAT TIME COMING TO WHERE RA HAS REALLY STARTED TO AFFECT MY BODY. IM HURTING ALL THE TIME. IM TAKING MEDS ON A DAILY BASIS. AND STILL, I MOVE AROUND BUT CANT REALLY DO THE WORK THAT IVE KNOWN TO DO. MY BODY IS SO SENSITIVE. ANYHTHING WILL TRIGGER PAIN. AND I HAVE BEEN TAKING IT EASY. BUT HONESTLY HERE LATELY I HAVENT DONE MUCH OF ANYTHING. I DONT WANT TO OVER DO IT. IM JUST SO TIRED ALL THE TIME. HOW DO WE KNOW WHEN ITS OKAY TO FILE FOR DISABILITY? IS ANYONE ON IT? I WORK FOR MY HUSBAND, SO I GET AWAY WITH "BEING LAZY". BUT HONESTLY AS MUCH AS ID LOVE TO GO OUT THERE AND GET A JOB, I DONT THINK I COULD REALLY HANG ON TO IT. DONT GET ME WRONG. IVE ALWAYS BEEN A HARD WORKER AND WORKED LOTS OF OVERTIME. IM DOWN FOR WHATEVER, BUT TODAY, I DONT HAVE THE MIND SET TO DO ANYTHING. I FEEL GUILTY CAUSE I SEE WHAT IM DOING AND ITS NOT MUCH. I DONT THINK IM DEPRESSED, I DONT HAVE BAD THOUGHTS. I DONT TAKE PAIN MEDS FOR A HIGH, I DONT EVEN TAKE THEM WHEN IM KINDA HURTING. IM A PRETTY PAIN TOLERANT PERSON. BUT MY BODY IS JUST WEARING ME OUT. I DONT WANT TO FILE YET, I FEEL LIKE IM GETITNG FROWNED ON BECAUSE I LOOK FINE, ITS FOR OLDER FOLKS. BUT I FEEL LIKE AN OLDER PERSON, NOT A YOUNG MOTHER OF 1 WITH A START UP BUSINESS. MAYBE ITS JUST THE WEATHER PLAYING WITH ME. I DONT KNOW. IM JUST SO TIRED OF BEING SWOLLEN AND TENDER EVERYDAY. IM STARTING TO GET FINGER NODULES, DOC SAYS THAT OSTEO, BUT IM GETTING BUMPS ON THE SIDE OF MY FINGERS. MY KNEES ARE KILLING ME. I FEEL LIKE I HAVE BOLTS RUNNING THROUGH THE SIDES OF THEM. MY FEET, OH MAN, THEY HURT SO BAD AT THE END OF THE DAY. THEY'RE MORE SWOLLEN THAN THEY HAVE EVER BEEN. MAYBE IM JUST DOING TOO MUCH....... LIKE I SAID, IM TIRED!!! SORRY FOR BLABBING. AND ADVICE A SSD PLEASE JUST TALK TO ME!! THANKS FOR HEARING ME OUT!!

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
