I am 37. I have rheumatoid arthritis. Having RA doesn't mean I can't also be an athlete. I have a daughter, Andra Kate, born 12/12/08, and am due with daughter #2 due 12/12/12.
heard good things about bum genius! waiting for my complex to install our in-unit washer/dryer to switch to cloth!
Hello, great blog. I was so relieved to find someone else out there in cyberspace who is an athlete with RA. (I just discovered that Joy Fawcett, the USA women's soccer team player, also has RA). I am seronegative but have all the symptoms and am just beginning this journey after the last few years of persistent joint injuries which I believed were sports-related. I just couldn't ever seem to really heal. I don't run anymore but I cycle pretty hard, mountain bike, hike a bunch and ski a little in the winter...although I have a toddler now so I'm more limited by that than anything else. I'm so glad to know you are not letting your RA bring you down and aren't being scared off by the gloom and doom out there on the internet. It was really depressing to read until I found your blog! I know I will need to make a lot of concession to this disease but I plan to find a way to stay as active as possible and live my life to the best I can. Congrats on your pregnancy too!
