WEGO Health TV

WEGO Health TV works to create videos containing advice and information from bloggers and other online community leaders about various health issues. Recently they contacted me and requested that I contribute to their new Rheumatoid Arthritis channel. So I did!

I have to admit, especially considering how easy it has become for me to write honestly about my RA on this blog, I was surprised at how difficult I found it to talk about my RA in front of a camera. But I think it is good to challenge yourself once and a while, and now I have been featured in two videos on their RA channel.

I was going to embed the videos in this post, but I didn't like the way they played automatically (rather than giving you the option to press play). So, if you'd like to see the videos, please use the following links:

(1) School and Work with RA

(2) Staying Active with Rheumatoid Arthritis

I was asked to videos for them too! I totally feel the same way...it's so easy to write on my site, but it took me like 8 tries to get a video recorded! I kept stumbling over my words and getting tongue tied. Plus, I sent the video several times and they couldn't get it to work. Found out what the problem was and now they want me to record a video about trying to get prego. I'm scared! lol Like you said though, it's a good challenge. Glad to see you on there!

UNKNOWN: Thanks, Mama. ~;o)

CHRISTINA: I'm afraid I might be partly to blame for that request! I suggested to them that pregnancy and RA might be a good topic because there are so few resources out there on the subject. But it didn't occur to me how difficult it might be to talk about it on a video! I had a hard enough time talking about school and exercise!

MOM2LITTLEMISS: Thanks. ~;o)

SARAH Z: Also thanks. ~;o)
