    Kelly, this is a great collection of Blogs. I look forward to reading them! Thanks for including me 🙂

    My compliments to Kelly for being such a team player. No competitions among web sites – everybody is working for the awareness cause. Kelly really keeps her “eye on the prize” and we can hope we’ll all benefit.

    Kelly – it took me several visits between Thanksgiving preparations to read all the blog posts, but I was compelled to come back every time I took a break. What a fabulous idea: an array of voices sharing a single message; urging all of us to raise our voices in support of a single message. I loved the symmetry of the concept, and enjoyed each of the blogs. Brilliant!

      Thank you, Jackie. I hope we can do it again in a few weeks.

    Awesome Kelly….I think you have a snowball starting. Also I joined the blue ‘managing rheumatic conditons’ site and did get my first $10 coupon for Amazon. What’s really nice about the site is you can create your own surveys! This appears to be a company that handles advertising for one of the big pharmas. If we all get on and start hammering them for different commercials that show real RA and not happy perfectly fit actors running on beaches etc we can get the snowball to roll right into people’s TV sets. Wouldn’t that be a fine thing? There’s people out there that have RA and have no idea how serious it is. Let’s keep going and save some joints and promote awareness. I think your good work will have some far reaching impact. Way to go!!

    Great job on starting this Carnival. I started one for hospice and palliative medicine blogs two years ago and in January we will be doing our third year! In that time we saw an explosion of blogs around the subject as I expect you will too as you find new ones and discover old but unheard of blogs.

    As you build this community a few pieces of unsolicited advice:

    Be humble (you got that down!)
    Rotate hosting duties (builds the network, which helps all)
    Encourage all readers to visit the other posts, leave comments, and post that the carnival is published.
    Post a comment on each post selected that informs the blogger and future readers to that site about the selection for the carnival.

    Congrats, good luck, and take it easy!

      Christian, I meant to do that last one but my “list” never gets finished though I work 60 hours+ per wk on this… Thanks. The feedback showed that the participating blogs did get a lot of traffic and the feedback was positive. True, the comment list wasn’t long here. Much of my feedback came via email, FB, or Twitter.

    Thanks Kelly for the pain relief carnival post. This is something I have been struggling with for awhile. Since I am still working, I can’t take anything during the day for pain other than Ibprofin, which doesn’t do anything. My job right now is insisting that I perform my duties during an 8 hour work day at the office. It is possible that I could work at home. When does it come down to a quality of life?
    Look forward to reading more!
    Thanks again. These posts have given me food for thought!

    Kelly, thank-you for this post. Sometime, even with loving support, one feels so darn alone. It’s hard to hurt all the time and to always be so tired. I try, Kelly, I really try, to do things I used to do. But there are some mornings that I just want to cry and throw covers over my head than to face another day of trying.
    Thank-you, and all the other great blogs, for time, effort and understanding.
