Frozen Woman: Life With Rheumatoid Arthritis

If you ever look at the comments on this blog, you have undoubtedly seen the  many insightful and uplifting comments on my posts from Laurie. I've been reading her blog, Frozen Woman: Life With Rheumatoid Arthritis, for some time now. But it only just occurred to me yesterday that I hadn't listed it as a favorite or shared it here as I usually do when I find a great RA blog. So I wanted to remedy that!

Although Laurie and I have never met in person, I consider her one of my "RA buddies." She was diagnosed at the beginning of this year, so I think we are able to understand each other through stories and advice as only someone else with RA can. Despite her recent diagnosis, Laurie is keeping right on going with her busy and successful life - her perseverance is inspiring. And sometimes her comments are just what I need to keep going when I feel like giving up. So, I will,of course continue to follow her blog from this point forward and I recommend that you check it out too!!

Thank you so much, Mariah!

It does make such a difference coping with this crap disease to have people to relate to, far away though they may be. (At some point in time, maybe we'll have a "reunion" of sorts – although I guess "union" would be the more proper term, since we've never met in the first place!)

And thank you for inspiring me with your perseverance – it's my pleasure in return!

A "union" would be fun someday. ~;o)
