My career has spanned more than 25 years of executive-level corporate communications consulting, strategy, tactics and education for both public and private companies. I have turned this expertise toward RA advocacy in the hope of providing valuable information to those who need it the most — the patient.
I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in June 2008, and have (as of 2017) 19 surgeries including three joint replacements, two spinal fusions, and multiple soft-tissue procedures including two rotator cuff surgeries. 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 live with my husband live in Dallas, Texas (no kids, no pets, just the husband).
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.
