      @Snotface Thank you. I'm not mad about it anymore. I feel like I was given this as an opportunity to be an overcomer and to be able to help others. My 70+ something year old aunt was diagnosed with RA after I was. I've been able to help her deal with her issues and lessen her symptoms because I was further ahead in my health journey. I have 5 overlap diseases and it can be a lot but I use exercise, food and supplements to keep me mostly in remission. Plaquenil is my medication because the rest of the stuff wipes me out. Pain is probably the worst thing that I deal with but it can be managed as well. I am always here if you need to bend my ear.

      I have been diagnosed for 10 years now. So you get regular x-rays each year on your hands, feet, etc? This year my x-rays finally showed that the disease is progressing. My joints are calcifying and all the inflammation is taking it's toll on various joints in my body but I refuse to stop fighting

        @Niffer222 I have never been offered the option! They do regular labs every 3 months but I will ask when I go next month for x-rays now. I am really sorry you're going through all this also.
