  1. 18 January – the day Glen Frey died would have been my mother’s birthday. She would have been 72 yesterday but she died from medicine complications and side effects 25 years ago at the age of 47. I was a teenager then. I miss her every day. My heart goes out to Glen Frey’s family. When it comes it comes suddenly and you are never prepared.

  2. The devastation this disease wrought is absolutely life altering and leads to many other medical issues. I stopped all biologics due to two separate tumor episodes. I hope we all find peace and dignified acceptance when RA finally wins. I have RA, MS, Crohns and anxiety. I even had a bowel resection and my spine is fused from L1 – S1. Yeah me !!

  3. My eldest son has Rhuematoid Arthritis he is 20yrs old, it is such a nasty and painful condition. He copes well and at the moment has medication that seems to be working for him x

  4. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Sjögren’s syndrome. I have a terrible stomach and have had to have The Nissen Fundoplication and I have had to deal with all of this since I was diagnosed in 2007. When I had the Bloodwork I was told that 1 time in my life I had Mono and I didn’t know it. I have worked for over 25 years and I feel it slowing down soon, but my husband doesn’t think I should Retire yet. I am almost 50 and it seems to keep getting tougher.

  5. My heart goes out to Glenn’s family and band members. The Eagles are my number one band of all time. I will miss Glenn and to think about RA taking his life is unreal. I have severe RA and I know it is a struggle every day for all of us. Maybe one day there will be a cure for it. RIP Glenn. We will all miss you.

  6. My Love and Prayers go out to all of YOU that are suffering or have Loved One that are. Thank You All for the Loving comments on Glenn Frey’s passing.

  7. I have RA. Watching the Eagles on Netflix. I’m the same age as Glen was. I’m terrified of the drugs I have taken for 3 years now. Every time I try to back off, it rebounds. Glen was one of the most amazing people of our time. He never showed the pain but I know now what he went through just to function. I love and honor you, heaven is a sweeter place.
