Charlotte's RMD Story

“My name is Charlotte and I'm 42 years old. I have probably always had arthritis, but I was 29 years before I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Later I was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Right after I was told that I was sick, I was obviously upset. But after a while I was also grateful that I had found out what was wrong and could be helped by medication. I took a decision. The arthritis should not control my life. I had to admit to myself that I could not be the same as before the arthritis. It gave me new life chances. My future lies in my own hands, and I have made the choice to get the best out of life with arthritis!" - Charlotte Jensen
