discovering RA

I also got diagnosed reuma artritis in August. It has turned my life around. As a student at arteveldehogeschool Gent studying Marketing i was unable to attend al my lessons. To make it worse. I started my internship at a company in september. Luckely i have a great doctor who specialised himself in the field of RA. thanks to advances in medcine my life turned back to normal after a couple of months.

But in the months it took for the medecine to kick in my life was a hel. Working under pain doens't result in good work. I started to doubt my capabilities as a person. Luckely I had good support of people getting me trought this hard time.

RA has affected me as a person but didnt change who i was. I learned to live with RA on a daily basis. The medicine is finally working. I also learned to cope with the pain.

RA doesnt need to be something that changes your life. It is something you can learn to live with.

On the bright side. Their is a lot of research in Belgium for a cure. In 10 years their will be something to help us says Professor De Keyser who is alo my doctor.

  1. RA urghhhh what a pain. I am 26 with lupus and RA diagnosed almost 5 years ago. The good days are great, but they don't last too long as you said in your other post. It sucks that you had three months of pain before your meds kicked in. When I was diagnosed they put me on steroids until my regular meds kicked in. Well I wish you the best. Check out my blog and follow it. I would love to keep in touch.
