My Struggles and Triumphs Living With Rheumatoid Arthritis

I’ve lived through a lot of changes in my life since I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis over forty years ago. I’ve gone through frustration, pain, and acceptance. I’ve had numerous doctors’ visits, hospital stays and several major surgeries. Every major joint has been replaced, a couple more than once.
