I get it now. This disease hurts. Over the last several days I have discovered what all those people were whining about on the RA chat sites: constant pain that moves from one joint to another, improving in one, starting anew somewhere else. Each morning I open my eyes, afraid to move, because I never know what won't. I cannot walk without a limp because of my knee. And, I cannot walk at all for long distances.
I am one of them now. A whiner. OK, I got that off of my chest.
