Independence from Rheumatoid Arthritis

Last year at the end of July, I began my journey of using biologics.  Getting to the point of accepting biologics in my life was not an easy one.  In fact, I fought the use of biologics for years.  I wanted to be able to work through my rheumatoid arthritis symptoms without the use of medications.  I stopped taking my Methotrexate and Plaquenil and went on a two year strike from all medications.  It was a hard fight and in the end, I had to surrender.  It broke my heart giving in to the medications and the fact that they would once again own my body, but I came to a point that I couldn't fight any longer.  To read more, visit MyRACentral.
