  1. My dad was dx’d with RA last summer. Sounds like you two have been through the same course of treatment..he is now doing the injectables and so far, so good. I’m curious who your dr is..he’s seeing someone Beverly Hills.
    Best of luck to you! There is nothing lost talking about your disease! I’m a breast cancer survivor myself and sharing your experience is the best learning tool!

    • Reading other people’s experiences has been very helpful for me. I cannot tell you about the emails and phone calls I’ve received.

      People are good.

      I’d be remiss if I didn’t add a #FuckCancer for you.

  2. I can really appreciate the fact that you’re keeping the promotional aspect out of your treatment process. I really do hope that you find a regimen that works for you 100%.

    And totally off topic (which I hate doing) but I could help but notice your bedding, do you mind sharing where you found that, it’s beautiful?

        • That’s good to know, cozy is so much more important than design, I could never replace my down comforter but a beautiful cover for it is much needed. I’ll have to pop in there this week to check it out.

  3. I had no idea. I apologize for being clueless and not paying attention. :( Fingers crossed that treatment goes well and that you can find the right combination of meds to feel better.

  4. Oh Jessica, I’m hoping and praying you find the right medication to bring you some relief. My 12 yo son has JIA and has had it since he was 5. All too often kids and adults are misdiagnosed and when they are diagnosed, go without treatment because they can’t afford it. Thank you for sharing your story and creating more awareness.

  5. I have RA & Fibromyalgia. It’s terrible dealing with this. I’ve had it since I was a child. I’m 36 now. It’s hard taking care of myself most days, let alone my toddler. I’ve tried all the same drugs that you mention and then some. Some worked well for awhile, others not at all and of course steroids are my friend that you really know you shouldn’t be friends with, so I take them when needed. I’m looking forward to reading more about your journey and wanted to send you some very gentle ((hugs)).
