I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Disease on Tuesday March 10th 2015 after about three months of obvious symptoms and six months of not so obvious.
I am by nature a fixer, a thinker, a problem solver, even a trouble shooter on occasion. And all of a sudden here was something I couldn’t control. I couldn’t project manage this back out of existence.
I am by inclination a writer, it’s my way of processing things. As I write, often with no idea of what’s coming next, it clarifies for me how I feel about something, or what my opinion is. Sometimes I even suprise myself!
So starting a blog seemed almost a natural progression for me. I want to raise awareness. I want people to know what this awful disease does and to understand the impact it has on people’s lives. This is my small contribution towards that. I hope it helps.
