I am a free-lance consultant for a wide range of corporate communications services and the author of the acclaimed [trashy] suspense novel, Wake up with Fleas (available at Amazon.com and through special order at Barnes and Nobel, Borders, and Outskirts Press). I live with my husband live in Dallas, Texas (no kids, no pets, just the husband).
I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in June 2008, had hip-replacement surgery in August 2008, shoulder replacement surgery in April 2009, and back surgery and knee replacement surgery in 2013. I have been on multiple treatment plans and am still searching for that magic elixir that will put me into that magical state of remission. (Texas is great, but I think remission is better …)
While this blog might wander occasionally into other areas, its specific focus is dealing with RA and associated health issues. It is a sporadic (rather than daily) blog as I have rheumatoid arthritis — it doesn’t have me — and so there are lots of things in life besides having this insidious disease.
I hope the information I share is helpful or, at the very least, makes you smile once in a while. Thank you for sharing this journey with me.
