This blog is to show people what it's really like to live with Rheumatoid Arthritis at 18. When I was diagnosed, I searched the web and found very few accounts showing the difficulties of dealing with this disease at such a young age. On top of this, there were NONE that described the college experience living with RA, which has inpired me to start this! I hope my account can provide hope and support to RA fighters of all ages, and especially to those who have just been diagnosed!

Had my summer rheumy appointment last week. I'm doing so well that I can stop all of my pills and only do the weekly injections!

This means NO METHOTREXATE. (Although for the past 2 months i've been taking it every 2 weeks, it makes me too tired)

I am so beyond happy.

Although we did find a rib bone near my sternum that is very enlarged. He took an x-ray and had them sent to a radiologist to be read. I'm not too concerned, but I will let you all know what he finds!
