First reply to HR:

Yes, there are something like 60 different forms of arthritis, with 2 the most common, that being Osteoarthritis (which I have), and then the second most common, which causes your joints to deform, is Rheumatoid Arthritis. Osteoarthritis happens often at a younger age and is often seen in younger people thanks to broken bones not healing right. Whenever I see a child with a cast on their hand or on their leg, I feel so bad for them since the odds are good they will develop Osteoarthritis sooner or later, and they will have it for life. I don't know what the percentage is for developing it thanks to broken bones, but I know it is high. As I noted, I got it as soon as my left hand healed, yet in my right hand, I first got it in my middle finger in the exact spot where I broke that finger as a child, yet the arthritis didn't happen in that finger for a good 40 plus years later, and now today, just 10 years since that, my entire right hand is affected.

Rheumatoid Arthritis, which I believe is the worst form you can get, IMO, has nothing to do with injury, and you can get it at anytime in your life. Even children can get it, but it's usually called "Juvenile Arthritis" for them, although from what I have read on this, Juvenile Arthritis is really Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Another common form of arthritis that I also have is simply called "Back pain arthritis", and many people who think they just have a bad back, don't - they actually have Back pain arthritis and don't know it. That was the case for myself until my doctor explained this to me.... Then in men only, Gout is common, yet few women seem to get it. I had a gout attack just one time, which was caused directly by the medicine I was taking to control my high blood pressure. Truth is, it's suppose to be the most painful kind to get, but try to tell somebody who has Rheumatoid Arthritis that.Then a common form of arthritis, but mainly in woman only, is Lupus. That isn't to say men can't get Lupus, or woman can't get Gout, but your sex seems to have something to do with both forms of these 2 types of arthritis.

Why do I know so much about arthritis? Because I have it and when I'm affected by something that will affect me for the rest of my life (or one of my kids are affected by something like this), I study it more so than the average person will, as that's how I'm wired. To me it's important to know how to deal with such a thing and know what lies ahead for you. Some people are the opposite on this - they don't want to know about what they have, yet I never could understand that line of thought, but everybody is different.

One of the first things they teach new race car drivers is to pull their hands off the wheel BEFORE the crash.

I didn't know that, but I can see why. In my case, I was driving my car along the road one day, going about 40 mph, when this teen girl, who had just gotten her driver's licence, pulled out from a Burger King driveway directly in front of me without looking. I saw her look to her left, but she never looked to her right (where I was, about 15 feet away) and she just pulled out in front of me when I was right on top of her; it was totally impossible for me to avoid hitting her. I was so shocked that she did that, that as the impact was about to happen, I took my right hand off the steering wheel in astonishment and put it up in the air, in the exact way a person does when surprised. Thank goodness I did that, or my right had would have been broken too, as the car's steering wheel was cracked in 2 different spots from the crash, and my left hand badly broken (all the bones on the top of the hand were broken), and my car was totaled. What got me was this gal totally lied to the cops after the accident, which really pissed me off (she claimed I was speeding when I wasn't, and the cops could see from my skid marks that I wasn't), as the accident was 100% her fault, and the cops didn't buy her story at all. She was written up for reckless driving, and I had to go to the ER for treatment, and her insurance had to pay 100% for my treatment. But then again, because I didn't know I was to get instant arthritis from this event, that was never covered. Thing was, I found out that this girl was from a very rich family. Her rich looking mother showed up shortly after the crash, as they lived just a few blocks away, and she gave me a dirty look, to which I said to her "Your daughter is 100% to blame for this". But had I known what was ahead for me years later - that being a lifetime of pain thanks to this rich kid not knowing how to drive, I would have sued the family for a few million bucks. Instead, all I got was my ER bills paid for and a replacement for my totaled car, which wasn't a 'new" car but a used one.
