Women Living With Arthritis

     Still resting up from my 4 day all girls vacation to Pigeon Forge TN.  Great time, stories to come.  For now, just want to let you know about a special section in a local magazine that came out today.  The magazine is called Today's Woman and the November issue features a section on women living with arthritis.    As one of those women, I am very proud to do my part in educating the public on just how hard it is to live with this disease.   Millions of people live with this disabling, debilitating disease and 60% are women.  There are over 100 forms of arthritis.

     If you would like to read the article here is the web address:

     There is also a video that goes along with the article.  The web address for it is:

     Please enjoy the article and help us spread the word that arthritis is not just something that everyone gets as they get old.     It is a real disease that strikes all ages, including children, and can be very serious.   Thanks for reading.

Until next time...that's my view.

  1. Kat, that is a great article. Thanks for the link so much. As an RA sufferer I struggle with maintaining a normal exterior while my insides are screaming some days.

    Enjoy your rest and starting telling us the stories soon.

    cheers

  2. Marlia, I am glad you enjoyed the article. I really enjoyed participating in the interview. I've never done anything like that before and I was really nervous. Did you watch the video? I thought the magazine did a really nice job.
