Thérèse

Patient Leader

Diagnosed with RA in 1986-age 26. I’m often disappointed by others who don’t realize the true impact of the systemic inflammation that comes with this disease! When people aren’t personally touched in some way, how could they really know. I lived in silence for too long. I decided to try Twitter in 2011, hoping to find others affected by RA and to spread awareness. It was then I finally found my voice! The most valuable aspect for me is that I have met thousands of truly inspirational people fighting the same battle and I became a strong patient advocate. I have overcome great challenges & continue to since diagnosed & I share my experiences in hoping to help others to never give up!
