Other stuff: I was diagnosed with JRA at age 11. So far I am lucky compared to some. I have arthritis in every joint in my body, even my jaw and sternum. Most of my joint damage is in my elbows, fingers, wrists, and knees. There are some things I am not able to do, but I try not to concentrate on that. I am still able to do many things. Its been quite the experience, living with this disease, and learning what it does to change you as a person......some of it good, some not so good. But, the important thing is to accept what you are dealt, and fight your way around it to live life to the fullest. Like the saying goes...."Don't worry, be happy!"
