I have had RA now for a little over a year and boy, has life changed! So far, I have taken Azulfadine and Prednisone for treatment but have a feeling my RD will soon put me on Mtx since I have been having more pain/swelling again. I came down with a rotten cold the middle of Sept. that moved to my chest with a terrible cough and then an earache. I am still dealing with it and it's been a month and 1/2. This is the first time I have noticed how long it takes me to heal from something. I have been managing but it has not been easy. Some days, I try not to think about RA or talk about it. I know it's there but it's so darn tiresome to deal with 24-7. The last few days I have just felt like breaking down and crying and have. I don't want to be burdensome to anyone but once in a while, it's nice to be able to share with people that truly understand. Thanks for your listening ears.

Does anyone know if a better RA forum than this one? I always loved to come here. I would read a lot & post some. Now it's so hard for me to read the posts. I have a laptop & half the screen is taken up by the huge banner at the top. I don't like it. I'm not comfortable with it. I will probably not hang around very long. So sad. :(
