Living With “Rheumatoid Arthritis” is pure hell!! #FindACure
Arthritis affects 52.5 million US adults, more than 1 of 5. It is a leading cause of disability in the United States and one of the most common chronic conditions in the nation. Arthritis is a common cause of chronic pain.
Rheumatoid Arthritis: Also called: RA
A chronic inflammatory disorder affecting many joints, including those in the hands and feet.
What is a Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease in which your body’s immune system – which protects your health by attacking foreign substances like bacteria and viruses – mistakenly attacks your joints. The abnormal immune response causes inflammation that can damage joints and organs, such as the heart.
I was first diagnosed with Child Rheumatism “Arthritis”also called Juvenile Arthritis “In the legs” when I was 9 years old I remembered this just like it was yesterday my doctor treated me for 6 months then my Arthritis went away just like it came.
After 30 something years go by the Arthritis came back with a vengeance I now have it in my hands, fingers, wrist, knees, arms, elbows, neck, ankles and jaw I had symptoms first for about 5 months before the arthritis really hit. It was really hard trying to find the right medication for my RA. I went to an Acupuncture doctor for my allergies and that really helped me, how ever the acupuncture didn’t help with my RA so I started treating my RA with herbal remedies and eating more healthy along with juicing.
Having Rheumatoid Arthritis is a daily struggle you have good days and you have bad days, it also depends on what you eat if I eat the wrong food such as white rice or tomatoes even lots of cheese and so on, I’ll have flare ups and when that happens I can barley walk use my arms or hands. So I have to make sure I eat right more fish and veggies and juicing, my hand are trying to deform I’m always trying to bend them straight my knees hurt really bad the right one more than the left I limp at times. I’m a martial artist and I love kickboxing and running I’m unable to do that right now I have to do every thing much slower “I Want My Life Back”
I changed Rheumatologist so I hope to see more improvements soon, but I went to a hand and knee specialist, so next month I’ll be having hand surgery on both of my hands and my knee is swollen so I’m going to Physical Therapy now for my knee hopefully I won’t have to have knee surgery.
This is why I haven’t been blogging that much because I’m in pain after the surgeries hopefully I’ll be like brand new again and I’ll start back blogging or Vlogging..
Rheumatoid Arthritis has really changed my life everyday it’s a struggle I hope they find a cure soon.
In this picture of me below is my hand braces, knee braces and finger splints they look like rings and there also called ring splints the help keep the finger joints from deforming they also support my fingers when they hurt!
My YouTube video below shows some of the hand splits that my hand therapist made for me to re-leave the pain in my fingers, wrist, hand an arm for night time use if I need it!
My struggle with Rheumatoid Arthritis! Video
Ipray that a cure will be found for Rheumatoid Arthritis soon!
Rheumatoid Arhritis is often thought to be a condition related to old age, but this isn’t always the case. According to the Arthritis Foundation, the average onset of RA is between the ages of 30 and 60, and children can also get it.
Almost 300,000 children in the United States have some form of arthritis or rheumatic disease (a disease that affects the muscles and joints). The most common form of arthritis that affects children is juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA). If your child has stiffness, swelling, and pain in his joints, talk with his doctor about the possibility of arthritis.

Golden Globes Recap: Denzel, Taraji, and Foxx Win The Night “NBC News”
Sunday night’s 2016 Golden Globe awards were full of jokes (good and bad), laughter, and a little bit of shade. Although Quentin Tarantino received the side-eye from many Black viewers, Taraji P. Henson’s win and Denzel Washington’s honor gave us all something to smile about.
Taraji For The Win!
Taraji P. Henson won “Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Drama” for her role as Cookie on ABC’s “Empire” beating out Viola Davis, Robin Wright, Caltriona Balfe, and Eva Green.
She brilliantly passed out Cookies on her way up to accept her award.
“Who knew that playing an ex convict would take me all around the globe?” Henson said in her acceptance speech. She went on about how she thought it would be another one of her other roles that landed her a golden globe, but “it’s cookie who spent 17 years in jail for selling crack, so the world loves real.”
Henson thanked “Empire” creator Lee Daniels and her co-stars Terrence Howard, Jussie Smollet, Trai Bayers, and Bryshere Gray. And when they sent her the signal to wrap up her speech? She hilariously snapped back, “I’ve waited 20 years for this! You gon wait” – in true Cookie fashion.
Denzel – Cecil B. DeMille Award
Denzel Washington was honored for his life-long work with the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award. Tom Hanks presented him with the honor. “Great Cinema lasts forever, and a great actor will forever astound us,” said Hanks. “A single name can define an artist who is a peer and equal with all of the greatest legends of our craft. If Washington doesn’t ring loud enough, then let the first name carry all the weight. And that name is Denzel.”
Washington is the third Black Actor to win the award in its 63-year history. Sidney Poitier won in 1982 and Morgan Freeman in 2012. Washington has earned seven Golden Globe Award nominations in his career and two wins for “Glory” and “The Hurricane”.
Washington didn’t say much in his acceptance speech — because he forgot his glasses and couldn’t read his speech, but it didn’t even matter because everyone loves Denzel.
Jamie Foxx won in so many ways at the Golden Globes. While presenting the award for Best Original Score, Foxx made fun of Steve Harvey’s “Miss Universe” fail, announcing “Straight Out of Compton” as the winner, which obviously wasn’t nominated (shade).
“I’m sorry Folks. I made a mistake it’s right here on the card. I take full responsibility,” Foxx said in his best Harvey imitation.
And, Foxx kept on winning. When Quentin Tarantino got up to accept the award for the real winner, Ennio Morricone for “The Hateful Eight”, he decided to use the word “ghetto” in his acceptance speech. Many were not pleased.
While talking about the Italian composer, who he called his favorite, Tarantino said, “But when I say favorite composer, I don’t mean movie composer, that’s ghetto. I’m talking about Mozart. I’m talking about Beethoven. I’m talking about Schubert.”
It was a little uncomfortable to say the least. Foxx got up after the speech simply saying “Ghetto?” and gave Tarantino the severe side eye. The camera also fell on Regina King whose face said it all.
Earlier in the evening, Quentin Tarantino accepted the award for best score for “The Hateful Eight,” the movie he wrote and directed. The winner was the 87-year-old Italian composer Ennio Morricone, who has won the award twice before, in 2000 and 1987.
In his speech, Mr. Tarantino said that Mr. Morricone had never won an award for a movie that he’d done, and viewers were quick to point out the mistake.
Mr. Tarantino also called Mr. Morricone his favorite composer — “I don’t mean movie composer, that ghetto” — he told the crowd, which quickly earned him some criticism on social media.
Others were delighted to see Jamie Foxx walk up and deadpan the word.

Dick Wolf’s latest franchise will expand to three shows, when Chicago Med joins Chicago P.D. and Chicago Fire in prime time.
The shows will occupy the same universe, with overlapping characters and cases of the week, much like Chicago P.D. and Chicago Fire do currently. According to Wolf, Chicago Med seemed like the natural next step in the series.
“Who puts, every day, other people ahead of themselves? It’s cops, firemen, paramedics,” Wolf says in a sneak peek at his newest spin-off. “Chicago Fire was the first of the trilogy, but it could have just as easily been Chicago P.D. And where do you think the paramedics every episode take people? They take them to Chicago Med. So, here we are.”
The hospital has been in the background of Fire and P.D., but Chicago Med will introduce viewers to the major players who work at the hospital, including Chief of Psychiatry Daniel Charles ( Oliver Platt), hospital boss Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) and nurse April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta).
“To have three shows that the casts operate seamlessly, it’s never been done in the history of commercial TV,” according to Wolf.
Check out the exclusive sneak peek below. Chicago Med premieres Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 9/8c on NBC. Will you watch?
