Rheumatoid Arthritis: Why Don't They Understand What I Am Going Through?

Learning to live with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is no easy feat. It takes time and patience to comprehend what RA has in store for our bodies and how we will personally deal with it. To make matters worse as we grapple with this life changing event, we must educate our family, friends, and even our coworkers about RA when we have little energy to spare. We may come to realize that the people in our life don’t respond the way we had expected, leaving us to wonder: “Why don’t they understand what I am going through?”
