What Being an RA "Newbie" Has Taught Me - Rheumatoid Arthritis - Health Monitor
Well,golly gosh, even as old and jaded as I am, I still haven't lost the capacity to be thrilled. Here's me, featured in an article! Except for the few times in my life when I've written letters to various publication editors and had them printed, this is new for me. And there is a little talk about the possibility of me actually authoring my own pieces. After all, writing, my beloved means of expression, has taken a back seat lately, and I want to change that. It saddens me that I have several drafts of things in my computer, slowly ripening, still waiting to be harvested.
My association with Health Monitor Magazine began quite accidentally, when I picked up a copy in my doctor's office about a year ago, and took one of their readers' surveys. It led to a couple of phone calls, and then this piece.
Few things make me happier than sharing real-life experiences to encourage others, along with the work I do as a therapist. "Letting one's light shine" is such a satisfying way for us to help each other enhance our quality of life.
