I am currently in transition as I try to go onto SSDI.  I have worked with people with disabilities in some capacity for over 25 years.  I am at a point where I must look at the wear and tear that is occurring with my own body, thus I am now looking at going on disability.  I am hoping that the new free time will allow me more time with my family and friends, something that has been at a very low level while trying to work.
I am active in the local bicycling community as a United States Cycling Federation official.  I am still able to ride my bike, though not as far as I would like, which keeps me active without wear and tear on my joints. 
I have 2 wonderful children, and we are expecting my second grandchild any day now.

I'm a 50 year old female. My 20 year old son lives with me. This arthritis has affected my life. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything. My doctor says that if it's not RA, I have excessive wear and tear on my body. I am currently being treated for OA...but the medication does not help. My fingers are starting to disfigure. To all who post me I will return an answer. It gets lonely being in the house all the time, doesn't it?
