Trying to bring a little humour to the wonderful world of Rheumatoid Arthritis. If you want a little less humour and a little more this-is-my-life-with-rheumatoid-arthritis, feel free to check out my more serious and personal arthritis blog, arthrmyalgia@tumblr.

Every week the skin reaction gets worse.. Antihistamines only help a little, as does icing. Anyone have any advice? I’m allergic to the preservative but the drug has helped so I want to stay on it. I scratch it so hard and I don’t even notice I’m doing it until I almost break the skin, which I think is probably not a good thing.
Guys, you should really submit stuff so that I’m not just using my own experiences! Are any of you guys on infusions? Have joint replacements? There are a lot of aspects of this disease that I haven’t faced- I want this blog to properly express them, too!
It is estimated that 24,000 Canadian children and teens aged 18 and under live with arthritis, or more than three out of every 1,000 kids. These young people face the debilitating chronic pain of childhood arthritis (CA), robbing them of their childhoods. The Arthritis Society wants to hand back childhood, and help these kids enjoy being kids. In recognition of March as Childhood Arthritis Month, The Arthritis Society is raising awareness throughout the month with a number of events and initiatives.
During March, Canadians will be able to help “hand back childhood” by making donations to a dedicated childhood arthritis fund at www.arthritis.ca/childhood. The fund will support research, programs and other initiatives specifically targeted to addressing the challenges of CA.
I want to note that I used my right TMJ as an example because my left TMJ is so damaged that it barely shows up on x-rays. This is one of the reasons RA patients often have MRIs rather than x-rays.
Hey guys! I had pretty well abandoned this blog for quite a while, but have recently become inspired to maintain it again. In the last year or two, I have had many messages asking what I look like, how old I am, etc. You guys do know I have this, this, and this blog, as well as IG, Twitter, and YouTube, right? Lol. Oh well!
Anyways, my name is Rebecca, and I am a 19 year old Canadian. I was diagnosed with (J)RA when I was 9 years old, and am the 4th generation in my family to be diagnosed. I have a few other health problems, too.
I am crazy and obnoxious but intelligent and loyal. I’m someone that lives a life of extreme emotions, or I’m someone that is cold and emotionless. I am also a bit of a whiner. Basically, be thankful you’re ‘meeting’ me like this rather than in real life.
If you wanna know any other personal stuff about me, please go to my other social networks, as this blog isn’t about me. I hope this was enough information to help with the curiosity, though. As always, guys, SUBMIT IDEAS for this blog if you want it to continue (I can only come up with so many ideas! lol).
