Gone are the good days and bad days. They have been replaced with a series of bad days and worse days. Worse days are spent in a state of vegetation waiting for…actually looking for those bad days. It's the bad day that I'm enabled to accomplish those little things that move life forward.
I know I'm not alone.

Sorry to hear. We do have to set new standards for ourselves living with RA.

Are you having trouble with your treatments lately? I hope you can try a new medicine combo that helps you more. Is it the pain, nausea or fatigue hitting you the worst? Or, all of the above? I wish the best for you.

Thanks for replying. It's the pain and fatigue. I've been on Methotrexate for almost 2 years. Until recently RA has been managed but lately not so. My RA doctor is working with me to get into a clinical trial for a Biologic med. It's too expensive to consider taking the approved Biologic.

I understand about the expense! I hope you find the trial helpful.
