Feeling Better After a Arthritis Diagnosis

When my mom was diagnosed with arthritis while still in her 50s, she nearly became depressed over the diagnosis. After talking with her, she explained that if she was already getting a condition that she didn’t think she would get until she was well into her 70s, then she wondered what else was going to happen sooner rather than later.
