Rheumatoid Arthritis Voices raised
Aren’t you amazed at the explosion of online activity related to Rheumatoid Arthritis? Of course the spammers have caught on to that. But there’s real RA blogs too. You can hear fresh energy and hearing new voices all the time.
Our movement is not unified by any organization. There is not one single message, but many distinct topics and styles. So what is it that gives Rheumatoid Arthritis patients a sense of cohesiveness?
I believe that there is a noble goal, a thread which ties us all together. It is this passionate cry: We will be heard. We have all decided that we must be heard.
Discussing Rheumatoid Arthritis is no fad or hobby like some blogs. For us, this is about our lives. When we talk about RA, it is not as a mere diversion. We are putting our hoarse voices together so that we can be heard. Period.
There is no such thing as too many Rheumatoid Arthritis voices. Every day that we speak clearly and honestly, we are closer to an understanding of this complicated disease and then a cure. Each voice is a contribution to that goal.
How Rheumatoid Arthritis voices are like Who’s
Rheumatoid Arthritis has been called an invisible illness. There are even some people who don’t seem sure that RA is real. In some ways, our world is different from the non-RA world. Do they understand our reality?
Maybe it is like we are in a world like the one which Horton saved on the pink clover. I want to be like Horton, my favorite elephant. I want to encourage every voice to speak up until we are heard and the world of Rheumatoid Arthritis is truly recognized as Whoville was in the end. Each of our voices is needed.
Like the Mayor said in the story: “We’ve GOT to make noises in greater amounts! So, open your mouth, lad! For every voice counts!”
