Even though more than 1.5 million Americans have rheumatoid arthritis (RA), life with this disease can be lonesome. Many of the symptoms are invisible to outsiders, which can make talking about how you’re feeling more difficult.

That’s why we reached out to people with RA through our Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis Facebook community as well as RA bloggers. See how they’re feeling, and click the links to get additional information on RA and pointers for better managing the disease. After all, life doesn’t stop just because you have RA!
