Childhood Arthritis: How long have I’ve had Arthritis? #AutoimmuneDiseaseAwareness

I was diagnosed with arthritis in my childhood years ago. What happened was I started  having random unexplained joint pain, etc. and the symptoms became worse.  My doctor (at that time) did testings and confirmed it was arthritis.

The type of arthritis I have is Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Despite my having health conditions ~ I try to stay positive and hopeful.  Tisha!

 

The Food and Drug Administration said late Thursday that several batches of the drug metformin tested positive for unsafe levels of N-Nitrosodimethylamine, a possible cancer-causing chemical. #Health

COVID-19: “ Vanderbilt enrolls first patient in hydroxychloroquine study: “ I take Hydroxychloroquine for RA. #Lupus #RheumatoidArthritis #Coronavirus

 

 

I take Hydroxychloroquine for my RA and the side effects are a bit  intense —in fact, I have to get a yearly eye exam because I was told Hydroxychloroquine  is known for causing eye problems. Hope it works out well for the Coronavirus Disease…

When you’re a diabetic and can’t find any Alcohol Prep Pads at the store —because of all the coronavirus panic buying. 😭 #Covid19 #DiabetesAwareness #Health

Omg! When you’re a diabetic and can’t find any Alcohol Prep Pads at the store because of the Coronavirus Panic Buying.

I understand why so many people are Coronavirus Panic Buying, but to those of you who are doing this —please take in consideration that there’s also some people in this world who have a chronic health condition. People living with a chronic health condition need medical supplies too! As a diabetic I depend on essential like Alcohol Prep Pads 1. When finger pricking to check my blood sugar 2. When I have to change my Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) sensor 3. When injecting insulin or changing my  insulin pump Infusion Set Site.

Yes Coronavirus is serious, but having a Chronic health condition is also serious too.
