    These and other online support groups work wonders when feeling alone. There are so many people out there looking for help and someone who actually "gets" it. I enjoy the positive forums, One that I can recommend is RA GUY and Arthritis Ashley on Facebook and Twitter.. Check them out and remember we are not in this by ourselves! Feel better!

    I do like the fact there are people who I can relate to that know what I go through,things that family member just don't get. I have joined some groups like on fb, but unfortunately , a lot of people just want to whine and mope together. This is so unhealthy! When I shared whats helping me , I was basically told to delete it, its not allowed. I am led to share what im doing bc I don't want anyone suffering when there is elp, there are answers, and you don't have to take a thousand prescription drugs. We need more positive forums, and i know there are people open minded actually wanting help. Fell better everyone and if you want to know what helps me and has changed my life is just a little over a month, contact me , I am more than willing to help others find help too!

    I have noticed the same thing about FB forums. In addition to RA, I have Sjorgens disease, fibromyalgia, connective tissue disease, degenerative and osteo Arthritus. They are all working again each other making the effects of each one more extreme. I am on IV and oral chemo
