Hi Sara, I've been reading your blog for the past year and a half, since I stumbled upon it shortly after having been diagnosed with RA. The day I found it I read all of the entries you had written up until that point and I alternately laughed and got a little bit misty in the eyes, as I related your experiences to my own. I was so relieved to have a connection, any connection, even just a one-sided virtual connection, with someone that just GOT it (as you have experienced, many people care and I always have people to support me, but few really get it). It has been quite the year and a half and a lot has changed in my life and my RA, (good changes!) and I sincerely appreciate that your blog has stayed with me and I can check in every few days for updates and links to myRAcentral and the comics (which are so awesome, by the way).
I moved to a new city at the beginning of last year, a few months after being diagnosed, and so the past few months I have been aware of this strange new feeling when reading your blog: I've realized that I've already been through a lot of the experiences that you're just going through now, whereas before it was always the opposite. This feeling and this past article/comic (which really struck home with me, as so many have) have finally prompted me to take a moment to say thank you. Seriously, thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Wow- I really can't say thank you enough. Sometimes, I start to wonder if my blog has lost its steam. Your comment really means a lot to me. I'm glad that sharing my story and thoughts helped you - it's the whole reason I started blogging, because I also felt so isolated but knew there were others like me out there, dealing with the same feelings and struggles. I'm glad you are doing better- take care, and thanks again!
