My undiscovered RA

I mentioned before that I very possibly had rheumatoid arthritis (RA) as a child, and I only recently found out.  I decided tonight, it’s a good thing that I didn’t know.  As a child and young adult, I pushed myself, and my family and doctors encouraged me to try and live a somewhat normal life.  If I knew I had RA, I don’t know if it would have worked out that way.  So many wonderful experiences may not have happened.  I may not have found my husband.  I may not have met all of the fantastic people that I’ve worked with.  At this point in my life, I’m more equipped to handle these imposed limitations, as well as the bleak picture my doctors paint.  As a child, perhaps it would have distorted my perceptions as to what I’m capable of and what I could accomplish.

In fact, if I only had a few weeks or months to live, I don’t think I would want to know.  I would much rather take each day as what it is, a blessing and a gift.  I wouldn’t trade my experiences for anything.
