Most likely we each joined the RA community when we were not well. For me, blogging during my worst days with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) was like talking to a trusted friend. My pain, fears, and challenges were released to the big, wide web and then comments magically came back validating that others felt the same way and understood me. I became a part of the RA community and it felt good.
But now that my symptoms are for the most part in remission, where does that leave me as part of the community? Do I still belong?
