9 Mistakes People Make When Talking About Rheumatoid Arthritis

Talking About Yourself

Do not talk too much about yourself when you are in a conversation with a rheumatoid arthritis patient. Instead, try to show empathy and listen to them. Only share your personal story when it can bring positive emotions or add value. Keep in mind 4 important questions before saying something: Is it kind? Is it informational? Is it necessary? Is it useful? Listening is important, especially when the people with rheumatoid arthritis want to share their sufferings. [2]
