Looking at a Rheumatoid Arthritis Flare Up with a Smile

Tags: ,

See what a Rheumatoid Arthritis flare up plus a little creativity can produce!

There was a treat in my email box last night.  Young freelance writer Brooke Windsor wrote up this clever verse about her Rheumatoid Arthritis flare. It gives cool meaning to “grin and bear it.” Brooke’s writing touched me and made me smile and I’m so glad she is letting me share it with you.

Dear Kelly,

I just recently discovered your site, and I wanted to let you know how much it has helped me…  I am currently having one of the worst flares I’ve ever had and even typing this note is a bit too much.  However, after having a good cry about having to cut my shirt off in order to take a shower since my shoulder was so swollen I couldn’t get out of it myself, I remembered the idea of laughing at this “inconvenience” from all the funny articles on your site since it really is a laugh or be miserable kind of world for rheumatoid arthritis patients.  I took it upon myself to make my own funny of my bad flare by taking an hour to type up this little joke.  I thought you might like it as it really did make me smile once I finished.  Again, thank you so much for your website.  I really need to know there are others out there going through the same thing as me on days like this.

You know it’s a bad Rheumatoid Arthritis flare up when…
