Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Lupus are a really big disease that can affect any part of the body.  You must eat vegetables and fruit to help your body. Gentle stretching and walking everyday is really important. Most importantly take your medicines every day even if you feel better. Keep taking them as the doctor said without stopping.

Rheumatoid arthritis hurts. It hurts sitting with friends, it hurts walking and it can hurt just resting. This is not good. Help your community by taking your tablets. Not just once or twice but everyday or as the doctor said. You want to be good again? Take these tablets everyday even when you feel better. If you don’t you will start to hurt again.
