Home Buying When You Have RA

Home shopping can be stressful enough, but when you have a chronic illness such as rheumatoid arthritis, it make things especially hard.

Purchasing a home can be a stressful process and adding a chronic condition like RA into the mix brings up a whole other list of things to consider. So how exactly can you go about making the best decisions as you navigate home shopping with RA?

My husband and I decided to purchase our home at the same time that I was awaiting surgery for my first hip replacement. In retrospect, the extreme pain I was in helped to keep me in check, as I tend to “forget” how bad the pain can get, imagining that I can do more than I can.

Later, you'll be thankful that you chose with your RA in mind, especially when the RA pain comes out to play in that very nasty way.
