hi guys, my RF factor came up negative yet they have diagnosed me with RA. is it true not all RA sufferers have this RF factor because i've been told this by my primary dr who reffered me to the rheumy but he didnt go into detail (because he doesnt know i assume) and my pain is really bad and i am weak in the hands and opening things, even the mail sometimes, is really hard, and bending, moving, getting up from sleep or sitting is hard, painful...yet i had a negative RF factor. i'm confused because in tweetybean39's post you guys were talking about RF factors in the 1600's and up and yet mine is negative. i go to the rheumy on fri. for my first appt and just thought i'd ask here since i saw the post by tweetybean39. any info would be helpful.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
