Top 10 RA List

I put this in a post, but I had so much fun thinking it up, I wanted it to have its own page. Enjoy!

Top 10 RA List

10.   When you say no one understands how you feel, you’re probably right.

9.    Effects vary over time. Not being well enough to visit in-laws in the morning doesn’t mean you can’t have lunch with friends.

8.   Fatigue is a real reason to skip spring cleaning.

7.   Alice [in Wonderland] is a real wimp compared to the pills you get to take.

6.   Long meetings really will bore you stiff.

5.   You have a legitimate need to have regular massages.

4.   Learning the names of all your joints in that human anatomy class is finally paying off.

3.   You finally have a real excuse to take the elevator instead of the stairs.

2.   You may finally find out if enough X-rays will make you glow in the dark.

And #1 on my top 10 list ….

1.  A whole new group of [medical] people get to see you naked.

  1. I love this list. Thanks for giving me a laugh this a.m. Blessings.

  2. This is great! I am following your blog via email and a working mom of 3 kids. I’ve had RA since right after my oldest was born. Hope you will visit my blog too.

  3. I love you list, made me laugh. Going to send it to all my relatives, the ones who don’t understand! Just found you blog today, will follow for now on, been on Humara, now on Simponi, about 8 months and my hair is falling out really bad. I have really thick hair so was not obvious in the beginning, but really thin now, comes out in your hand in clumps. Have you had this problem, or anyone else had it. I haven’t come to that in my reading yet, but as I said I just found your blog.

    Thanks, for writing, I think it’s great.

      Eileen: Glad you enjoyed the top 10 list. I’m sure you have one of your own. Welcome to the blog. I have not had any hair loss with any of the many treatments I’ve been on. However, my hair did go from very straight to very curly as a result of leflunomide (Arava).
