There are some special events you won’t want to miss coming up on the blog! Meanwhile, it has been a blockbuster week here and I hope you’ll look back and check out any posts you might have missed. Lots of info from the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) meeting and a couple of new video blogs.

Maybe a Blog Carnival is just what we need for joint pain relief!!

Terrific webRA Warrior is putting together our first Rheumatology blog carnival. If you have any kind of blog at all, you are welcome to participate. The topic is Rheumatology un-Awareness: What is the reason for the widespread ignorance about Rheumatoid diseases like RA, AS, JRA / JIA, and PsA? Click here to see the blog I wrote with full description of the question.

If you can blog about this topic, send the link of your post to me by email: Kelly @ rawarrior.com by 10 pm Tuesday, November 23. I’ll put all of your entries together into a post for Wednesday, November 24. That way it will be up over the holiday for us all to enjoy reading all of the entries. And maybe sharing them with family.

Chat time for patients, doctors, and others who care about joint pain relief

In October, we began to use the #rheum tag on Twitter; click here to read all about that. The response has been terrific. Are we ready for the next step? Tuesday November 30 at 7:30 pm, we’ll launch #Rheum Chat. For 30 minutes, we’ll have a live discussion. These Tweet chats are so much fun they seem to last only moments. The time frame is experimental. There are warriors in time zones all over the world, so we want to see how many we can get at this time. Soon, we’ll have a regularly scheduled time.

If you participate you’ll probably make new friends, but you can also just watch the chat, even if you don’t usually use Twitter. Just click here, scroll down a little, and watch the Tweets fill the box.

Monday night joint pain relief with a smile

This coming Monday night, November 22, is the WEGO Health chronic pain health activism webinar – click here for more on that. This is a free program open to all. It’s a live seminar that you can listen to online. I’ll be one of the panelists so I’d love for some of you attend.

Another opportunity for Joint Pain Relief

For a limited time, there’s a little blue banner ad appearing below the blog post. It’s an opportunity to give feedback about RA to a pharmaceutical company by answering surveys and discussions. There are monthly participation gifts like Amazon gift cards. RA Warrior doesn’t get paid any differently whether you click on it or not, so please do it if you want to.

Postblog: What’s up with so many joint pain relief titles? You know every post has to contain a smile, don’t you? Well Google “joint pain relief” and see what you get? Mostly quackery. So, I’m hoping that someday soon someone will search for joint pain relief and be pleasantly surprised to find this real page!
