  1. Hi! I am a mother of two glorious children, a boy and a girl, 4 years and 1.5. I have a career in the field of Optometry/Ophthalmology that I love so much, but is VERY tiring. I am 26, and was technically diagnosed with RA at 25. My symptoms flared after childbirth. After my first child, the symptoms faded, but after the second, they stayed. So I am a newbie, just looking for some info on RA.
