Living with (my husband’s) Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Maven - Blog Disclosure - FTC

My husband was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis right around when our oldestson was born. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) sucks. I’ve known my husband over 20 years – so before and after his diagnosis. He was (is) someone who is very active – especially in the winter – it’s the reason we live in Seattle – hello snowboarding. But sometimes, his Rheumatoid Arthritis gets in the way. *shakes fist* There are days that RA interferes with his day to day activity. It pretty much sucks. It’s got to be frustrating for him. But all you can do is just deal.


I recently learned about LifeScript, which has great information about Rheumatoid Arthritis

  • provides medical information, tips and advice that are all written by professional health writers, experts and physicians.
  • Visit for useful information on Rheumatoid Arthritis and other prevalent medical conditions related to women’s health.

Okay, so I know it says women’s health. But the information on Rheumatoid Arthritis is still relevant. If anything, it helps me get a better understanding of what my husband is going through.

So what is RA? It’s a chronic autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation in the joints and certain other organs throughout the body. The immune system attacks the joints and organs because the body believes it’s own tissues aren’t supposed to be there. Sounds painful right? It is according to my husband.
