I’ve had symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis since 2004 but was formally diagnosed in January 2009. This blog represents musings about life with RA in an attempt to share my story with other patients, caregivers, doctors, researchers, and other healthcare professionals. As a former science teacher and current college professor, the analytic side of me comes out in my blog writing. I also serve as a Cure Arthritis Ambassador for the Arthritis National Research Foundation and as a Patient Advocate/Site Moderator for rheumatoidarthritis.net. I was featured in the December 2015 issue of Arthritis Today magazine in an article about men with arthritis.
The banner photo on my blog is of Puget Sound from Seattle on a winter day. It was taken by my father-in-law. His photography website is http://tallgrasspixels.net/.
