Ten years. 3562 days. On this day back in 2005, life was disrupted with four words: “You have rheumatoid arthritis.”
I remember how daunting that felt and the real fear that came with learning that this was an incurable disease, so as the anniversary of the diagnosis approached, I wanted to be able to honour the journey I’ve been on ever since and just shine a little light out into the world. It’s been a tough decade, no doubt, but it’s also been a fairly rewarding one.
