Hi Libby and welcome to HW and the RA forum
I too hate the poisons we put in our body and the long term effects, but what else can we do?
I would love to think there was a 'cure' coming soon or some 'natural' way of maintaining wellness but I guess Ive become a pessimist and think these things are unlikely.
I take these meds for quality of life and think to myself I will deal with whatever comes down the track, but how long is that track?
I guess trying new ways of dealing with our disease couldnt hurt and I would love to here of how other people cope med-free.
Keep posting on how you are progressing
Thank you Peggy ~
I live in a small town and know of a few women in town who have RA but they aren't really my "friends." I don't feel comfortable talking to them about all this. Somehow, even tho I don't personally know folks who post here, it seems very comfortable already. I already know I won't be judged here and I appreciate being able to vent to people who know exactly what I'm talking about. I don't even feel comfortable talking to my husband about it because if I say anything about feeling achy, he worries. So thanks for what you said to me and I hope the fish oil is the miracle. It will take several months, I understand, to offer relief. Libby
