Staying Positive With Rheumatoid Arthritis
The best ways to cope with rheumatoid arthritis will vary from person to person, but there’s one thing you can always control: keeping a positive outlook.
Of course, there have been times when staying positive has been a challenge for me. And some of the worst occasions have been after interactions with doctors who had a less than perfect bedside manner. During one visit, my doctor was switching my medications and I remember telling him that I couldn’t wait to feel better. Without even making eye contact, he said this was the best I was going to feel for the rest of my life.
Hearing that made me wonder why I was even there.
