One of the things that I think can help the most when your diagnosed with a disease as traumatic as arthritis is, is trying to turn something that may seem like a negative and a curse an turning it into a positive and a blessing! The way the I have been able to do this is finding ways to help others for example starting this blog was a way for my to trying to find a release and it turned into something that is a part of me. Also making a school team for your local Jingle Bell Run/Walk. This had really helped me in being able to accept what has happened I really suggest you try setting out to do something for the greater good!
