|A little about me:||Okay, it's novel time!
My name is Erin, and I'm currently 23 years old. I suffer from Systemic Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Raynaud's Phenomenon, and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), and Postural Orthostatic Tacychardia Syndrome (POTS). I am currently on Methotrexate, Folic Acid, Vitamin D, Plaquenil, Naproxen, Omeprazole, Adalat, and Meclizine to try and battle all of my symptoms and side effects.
I've been fighting my health ever since I was young, though I feel that with each new diagnosis, I am stronger. I feel truly blessed to have a family who understands my problems and needs, and friends who have been supportive and helpful in my times of need. I still have my dream of actually becoming a feature animator, so hopefully the RA doesn't mess up my hands too fast!
|Hello dear ones! As Paulette said, it is time for another group hug :)
An it is time to swing it out of the park too. Rheumatoid Arthritis Warrior is close to winning the Best Health Blog Contest. We were number one for some hours, which proves we can actually achieve this.
Rheumatoid disease is simply NOT understood. Period. It is not talked about. It is not acknowledged. We are invisible.
It is time not to be invisible anymore.
Haven't you felt, many times, you don't have a voice, or your voice can't be heard?
This is a chance to MAKE your voice heard. Please continue to vote, once daily, until Feb 15th.
We are RA Warriors!!!
|Good morning. I wanted to remind you to vote for the RA Warrior blog. We are now 400+ points behind first place, and we only have one week to do this!!
Aren't you sick and tired of people not knowing what RA is, and saying things to you like "oh my grandmother had that in her finger", or "but you don't look sick", or "take some advil", or "its not that bad, its only arthritis", or "take a hot bath, you'll feel better"??
Wouldn't you like to shout to the world "Its RA, and here's what you need to know about it"? Wouldn't you like RA to get as much research money poured into it as diabetes, autism, and a host of other chronic diseases?
YES? Then get on this site and vote!
If you don't have facebook or twitter I'm sure you have friends that do, so ask them to get on and vote FOR you!
I simply cannot stress how vitally important this could ultimately be to the future of RA treatment, publicity, and our health!!!
So don't stand on the sidelines. Get involved and help us... help yourself!!
|Just a reminder to all vote for the RA Warrior. We are a bit behind Breast Cancer, but if everyone voted once a day until the 15th, we would win!
Here is the site: http://www.healthline.com/health/best-health-blogs-contest
Thanks and I'm sending healing thoughts and prayers to all.
