CHANGE THE NAME FROM RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS

WE THE PEOPLE DEALING WITH AUTO-IMMUNE DISEASES FACE A DIFFICULT CHALLENGE DAILY BY THE GENERAL PUBLIC. ANYONE BATTLING AN AUTO-IMMUNE DISEASE KNOWS ALL TO WELL  HOW THE GENERAL PUBLIC HEARS THE WORD ARTHRITIS AND AUTOMATICALLY ASSOCIATES THIS DISEASE WITH THE MORE COMMON FORM OF ARTHRITIS. YEARS AGO YOU HEAR THE ELDERLY GENERATION REFER TO IT AS THE RHEUMITISM. MAYBE WE NEED TO HEAD BACK IN THAT DIRECTION. AT LEAST THEN PEOPLE UNDERSTOOD THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NORMAL AGING PROCESS OF ARTHRITIS AND RHEUMATISM.
