I have been suffering from Rheumatoid arthritis since 1989.(18 years).In India most of us live in joint families.Before RA I was a bubbly person, very much interested in arts ,music and so many other things.I wont depend on others to do any work.I want to be friendly with every one.Immediately after marriage I got RA.(which usually occurs in the age group of 23 to 30).And my life changed completly.With aching joints I was not able to do my day to day activities.raised my kids with such difficulty.joint family members could never understand my pain and always acuse me of not doing anything.Now I am taking steroids and otherb medications,gained weight,depressed....
