Hello and Welcome to “The Old Lady In My Bones”.
This is a blog about arthritis and what it’s like to live with this disease. Most people think arthritis is associated with the elderly, but it is a disease that touches people of all ages. I was diagnosed with early Rheumatoid arthritis in my thirties. I will share my experiences , as well as the experiences of others, through stories, prose and even the occasional poem. I hope to create a positive outlook on living with arthritis. I believe the human spirit has the ability to endure and the strength to make necessary changes in the face of life’s challenges.
I will post once or twice a week and respond to comments, suggestions, stories, links and resources others would like to share.
This is my first blogging experience and I look forward to the journey.
