I'm not sure how many of you read Confessions of an RA Superbitch, but I just found out on her Facebook page that she recently passed away. I am in a state of shock. I don't know all of the details, but I assume it was from RA complications. I knew she was having a lot of trouble finding a treatment that would work for her, but I really didn't expect this. I suppose you never really expect it in a 30-something mother. It's scary. It's heart breaking. And it hits way too close to home.
I've worked hard to push all the complications and dangerous medication side effects out of my mind. I figured what good could they do? But this brings them all rushing back. I try not to take things for granted as it is, but this really brings things into focus.
Please, hug your families a little bit closer and hold on a little bit tighter tonight. And send prayers out to RA Superbitch's husband and young son. Rest in peace.
