Q. I have RA and would like to know is there anything i can do to keep my moovement free is walking ok how mush and how long

A. my grandma has it too, from what i understand - every patient is different. but it takes several of years. i recommend also taking Omega 3 fatty acids, they were proven to slow inflammation and RA is an inflammatory process. other then that the information above seems very good, i'll keep it in mind and try to implement it and help my grandma :)

Q. How can I go about finding a free depression support group where I live? would like to find a depression support group in my area. How do I go about finding one? Google searches are turning up nothing.

A. Call the help desk or receptionist of your local or nearest hospital or medical clinic.

You could go to an AA meeting in your local community. A lot of people there are depressed. That's what those meetings do for people, they are a support group.

You could also start one and put a community notice in your local paper.

Get together with others you trust and talk.

Call home and talk.

Find a friend and talk.

I pray. God listens.
