RA God's Way:

from tragedy to triumph, victim to victory

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is currently medically incurable. At the age of 20 I had to come to terms with a chronic condition that I knew nothing about. Although there are millions of sufferers worldwide many people do not know another person with the same condition.

Amazing technology allows me to give you a place to connect with me as well as RA sufferers from around the world. Rheumatologists do their best to explain and treat your condition but unfortunately they do not have the day-to-day experience of living with this auto-immune disease. This blog aims to give you a voice, practical help, fellowship, encouragement and inspiration for daily living. Please feel free to share your experience or to ask any questions.

I hope that you will be a regular visitor and that you will advise others of this blog.
