Living with a Chronic Illness-Vlog Post

:) Hi y'all!

I decided to continue my V-log (yup, V dash log) series with a more personal video.  Many years ago, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis.  Google it, y'all. ;) I hope you will stay with me until the end of the video.  I realize it's almost the full ten minutes that Youtube allows, however, I really wanted to answer the questions I get on a daily basis.  Please, feel free to ask any questions you might have, I am always willing to respond.

I must say that I did this post not for any pity or "attention" but to shed light on what this life of mine is like.  It is not the same for EVERY RA patient, but I hope you will look at those in your lives with this illness in a new light.  They are survivors.  This is NOT an easy illness to live with.  If you are living with it, or anything similar, I hope and pray that you will do so with grace, and that you will keep your head up! :)

Here it is!



xoxo,

Evey

  2. I can sympathize with what your going through. I am so sorry your going thorugh that. I suffer from RSD/CRPS. It is something like that but much different. I have had this for four years and let me tell you its a everyday battle for me. I am in constant pain 24/7 There is no cure for this. There is medication which I have tried and the results were not good. I am kinda sitting here in pain just waiting for some more answers. Thanks for this post. Once again I am so sorry and I will pray for you:)

  4. We have so much in common its a little scary :-) But I also have RA, I have had the symptoms since 1997 after my 1st son was born, but I just got diagnosed 3 years ago, I am happy to know what it is, I take 2 different meds right now, and see my RA doctor every 3 months. Its hard somedays but thats what keeps me moving, I am only 37 and have 6 kids that the Lord has blessed me with, a wonderful husband of 15 years and then he birthed this healthy cupcake and cookie business in january, so God is not through with me yet, I just do my exercises watch what I eat, and if a flair up comes I just pray and ask God to give me strength. Love your blog lovely lady!
