Looking to connect...

I was diagnosed with my RA 10 years ago. There have been ups and downs, but overall, I'm still living my life. I continue to work full time in my office job, and I am single for the first time in my adult life. By nature I am an optimist, and I am too stubborn to let this hideous disease get the best of me. However, there are times when it is difficult to maintain this attitude. Friends and co-workers do not understand the level of pain, fatigue, and frustration... mainly because they are invisible symptoms.
I am looking to connect with other women in a similar situation as I am who also try to keep a positive outlook on life.
Have a great day!
