I am 47 and was diagnosed 3 years ago. I was married for 6 months prior to my diagnosis. I am divorced after a LOOONG separation. It has been very difficult, as I went from a 2 income family to $600 a month. The cost of RA is a huge issue. I believe that the death of my 16 year old son 4 years ago has helped bring on the onset of RA.
