Hi and welcome to WHL.
You are lucky, that you have a rheumy, that takes his time with you. Every time, I see mine, I spend about 30-45 minutes with him. That is very rare.
We are all very grateful, that WHL exsists, it is a place where everybody understands, what we are going through. Because NOBODY who is healthy CAN understand.
Good luck with your first rheumy visit, let us know, how it went.
I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
