Hi. I'm 29 and I've had rheumatoid arthritis for a bit over 10 years now. It all started in my wrist and unfortunately over the years has gone to other joints too. I've had a triple fusion in my foot and currently waiting for an ankle replacement. I finally decided it would be a good thing to get online and find more people who understand what it's like. I have a very supportive family but I know they don't know really what it is like for me. Every day is such a struggle. I don't sleep much at night and the pain is unbearable for me most days. I've been on so many different tablets and infusions and still can't seem to find anything that works for me. I think alot of the time people just assume you are okay even when you're not. I'm good at putting on a brave face most days and getting through through day. I have 2 young children so I always try my best not to show pain infront of them because they do worry alot. I'm just hoping I can get to talk to more people who have arthritis and understand what it really is like.
