I was friends with someone who worked as a disability manager and she told me that the more education you have, the harder it is to get disability.
She said that I would never be approved (I'm not looking into that right now), because I have a master's degree and they would come up with other job situations even though I work at a desk job all the time. I am 32 if that helps you out.
Hi I am also 32 years old. However I live in Washington State. I have never met anyone my age either with RA.
I have been on methotrexate, folic acid, leflumomide, IVs, and most of the biological (including humira which I'm allergic too). Now I am on Cimzia and Plaquenil three times a day. After I switched doctors I have been able to be in remission for the most part since June of 2012!
I work full-time and I'm a graduate student in mental health counseling.. married for five years with no children yet.
