    You are so amazing and such a great advocate to have in my corner. I am glad the pain in your back turned the corner, I think about you often and pray the pain does get better.

    Be careful on your trip. I wish this was something I could attend, even if it’s to get a better understanding of RA and other rheumatoid type diseases.

    I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you take this journey, and hope to hear from you when you can.

      Thanks so much for your support. I’ll do my best to post everything! I think maybe that will be lists of boring abstracts some days. LOL. 😛

    Here is a tip that may help your back pain, I learned from my wife and it really helps. Place a fleece blanket, about $10 at Target, on top of your bottom sheet. Sleeping on top of this blanket really warms your joint but won’t make you hot. I am sorrow not to pass this along sooner.

    Thanks for all you do. Have a great time at the conference.

    Hope all goes well at the conference for you….we will be thinking of you and hoping the conference will be even more productive than anticipated! Hope, also, that the warmth of the gathered group will help soften any discomfort that you may have! Strength definitely comes in numbers, and having all of us behind you should help you surmount any tough times!

      THANK you Vi! I will think of you helping me get through it all!

    Go, warrior, go! My prayers are with you. Hopefully your hotel will have a really comfortable mattress, which will go a long way for you. Thanks for all you do!

    When it really gets to you, inhale deep and exhale in a wave of calmness. Always remember to relax. If that don’t work, keep your chin up. Best wishes, best of luck.

      Thank you Phil! I am a big believer in deep breathing – it got me thru many hours of labor… You really can feel relaxing from it – just have to remember to do it!

    Thanks again for representing us. I will pray for your safety and comfort and look forward to all we will learn. Please feel our support.

    Kelly – I am so thankful that you are attending the ACR conference on behalf of our community. I’m also proud of you for facing this challenge (the travel, the planning, etc), despite your recent treatments and ongoing pain. That’s the warrior spirit!

    Thanks so much for participating in the Health Activist Vlog Contest- your videos are great! I added your blog to the blogroll on icyou’s blog The Pulse (try saying that 5 times fast lol) which you can find here: http://www.icyou.com/blog/

    Thank you for all your work in raising RA awareness & for being a voice for those who suffer with this disease. You are a true inspiration, keep up the great work!

      Thank you, Tori. It was a struggle all month to be able to finally record them. I was a bit embarrassed when I watched how well-produced the others were. What a fantastic turnout for your contest with WEGO! And thanks for putting us on the blogroll! 😀

    Hi Kelly,
    I have a similar story to your experience of getting RA at age
    13. I was misdiagnosed too.
    I want to emphasize the importance of good nutrition and eating
    healthy when you have RA. It makes a huge difference!!! I
    became a vegetarian and I cannot tell you how that helped.
    Also, limit alcohol and sugar. I swear by this. Please
    get this message to the people you speak to.
