I have Still’s Disease (also known as Systemic Onset Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis). My life is centered around the things I can and can’t do, although I tend to push myself a lot to feel more normal. It’s not easy growing up not being able to do the normal little kid activities like dance, sports, or even sometimes just walking around the house. I’ll talk about my youth more in the next post.
This blog will have advice & hints on how to make it through the hard days, celebrations on the good, and commentaries on the normal. It’ll chronicle my JRA, be a guide for people who need help managing pain, and for those interested in making a journey to self-discovery. I’m here to show how bad JRA can get and how quickly it can get better… or far worse. I hope that this helps others out there with this very uncomfortable disease.
