Today, I am very thankful that I am not in pain. A lot of you know that I have Rheumatoid Arthritis. It was just a year ago that I was in so much pain that I could barely move. Constant pain makes me miserable. I feel like I am on fire with the pain. It drastically changed my life.
A few years ago when I was first diagnosed with RA, the doctor put me on all kinds of horrible medicine and they made me very sick. I gained weight and could not believe how bad I felt.
I went to another doctor for a second opinion. At the same time, I also started going to Dr. Zhang. He is a Chinese trained physician from China and he has been treating my RA with acupuncture.
By the time of my second doctors diagnosis, he confirmed that I was in remission from RA. I am no longer on any medication except when needed. I am so thankful to Dr. Randy(as I call him) for he has made all the difference in my life, especially the quality of my life. I am not saying that I don't have some bad days, but they are fewer and far less than ever.
