You’re not alone
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, “You’re not alone” with this disease. So many of us share experiences. And yet, we hear frequently about the loneliness that Rheumatoid disease creates. Community is a tremendous remedy and it’s what brings many warriors here time after time. Hearing “you’re not crazy,” “that happens to me too,” or even “I’m sorry” is so simple, yet so valuable.
You Rock, Warrior!
You do. Living with the constant skirmishes of this disease tends to make us resilient and more sensitive to others’ needs. Do you know how incredible you are to keep showing up at work in pain? Focusing on your loved ones’ needs? Or facing one new medication, test, or surgery after another? While meanwhile fighting to overcome the pain, sound positive, and stay cheerful?
Reading your comments every day, I’m often amazed and humbled.
That’s why I’m so glad Arthritis Introspective chose “You ROCK!” as the theme for this year’s Gathering near Phoenix. I’ll be speaking at G-6 and I hope to see many of you there. Please click here to find out more about the Gathering or see the great topics on the schedule.
