I have been writing this blog for many years now, and I have been fighting for arthritis and awareness almost my entire life. As many of you know, I have even written an autobiography about my life living with the disease. All of this is mainly an attempt to help spread the word about autoimmune illness and rheumatoid arthritis. Some days, I think it’s working, too, especially when I receive emails or messages that explain how much my blog, book, and website have helped to educate and comfort those with autoimmune ailments and even those who remain untouched by disease. It is a great pleasure to know that my work is actually having an effect on the public.
Before we dig in this week, I just wanted to address something. A few weeks back, we announced a new storytelling series called “TalkingJoints.” This new series consisted of yours truly recounting some of the crazy antics that have befallen me while dealing with different aspects of my disease, as well as observations I have made while dealing with these situations. Unfortunately, as often happens, we did not anticipate some of the technical hurdles that putting together and serving up a show of this type entailed, and when we did, there were some shortcomings that needed to be addressed. Well, I’m happy to say that we are in the process of remedying these glitches, and “TalkingJoints” will soon be released in all its hilariously entertaining glory. Thanks for being so patient, and trust me when I say that it will be worth the wait. Your reward will be all the sweeter, I promise!
