Hi Susan, while I do not have RA, I have crohns disease, one of those diseases that most do not know about it, lol. There are many diseases out there that most of us look normal or even healthy & we get the "well you don't look sick". I think many people tend to think that unless a person is in a hospital somewhere they have nothing wrong with them.
One thing I don't do is let my health be the topic of discussion with friends. I discuss things only with close family members. In all honesty, they've seen so much over the years now, they can tell by looking at me if I'm not well, lol. We do have be thick skinned for sure.
I wish I could give you some wonderful ideas, but the main thing is take care of you, don't let others drag you down, you do not deserve that. Take care.
