8. Finding Support

Shannan, Jennifer and Irene draw support and motivation from different sources. Shannan runs a blog and an active Twitter account where she communicates with RA patients around the globe. Jennifer leans on her family when her RA gets her down. Irene depends on her own deep well of energy to get past obstacles.

We encourage you to lean on loved ones, participate in support groups, and find hobbies that boost your confidence. Watch the video for more ideas on where to gain support.
