I have really been a little sad lately. The anniversary of my diagnoses is coming up March 23rd and for some reason it’s upsetting. I guess since in just a matter of three days my life was completely changed is so surreal. I have always been a very health kid till high school. I had to have surgery and was diagnosed all in high school. I did not make the best choices in high school too much partying :( which I think help speed up my RA to come out. When one has RA they always have it from the moment they are born. The thing is it may never appear if you live a happy healthy life. Unlike what I was doing at the time of my diagnoses it was probably the worst time of my life. In a sort of morbid way becoming diagnosed saved my life. I would have continued on a horrible lifestyle path and destructed my body more. I have very supportive people in my life now such as my family friends and my lovely boyfriend. I am happy I have all of them in my life because they really saved me.
