I’ve been a very strong advocate for exercise right from the start. I exercise on all but the very worst days. And I exercise as hard as I’m able. On any given day, what I am capable of varies dramatically.
I have done weight bearing exercise all my life, long before I developed rheumatoid Arthritis and Mixed connective tissue disease. I believe it’s why I have such exceptionally dense bones. I have been fit all my life. I suspect if I wasn’t as fit as I was when Mixed Connective Tissue Disease and Rheumatoid Arthritis hit, I would have been in much worse shape, much sooner.
