Mark 5:8-10
8 For He said to him, “Come out of the man, unclean spirit!” 9 Then He asked him, “What is your name?” And he answered, saying, “My name is Legion; for we are many.”

Kitty, Andrea, Pia:

When the RA factor first showed up in my blood, they said time would have to tell what type of arthritis it would be. I recall wondering why it would be so difficult to tell which one it was. I was told then, there were over 200 different types and forms of arthritis and auto-immune diseases related to arthritis. So I was not shocked to find this huge list. Actually, I was relieved to learn there were over a 100 and not 200!

I guess y'all can imagine now how grateful and happy I am each time I find out a little more progress is made towards finding a cure for each type:-)
And although I am having the worst type (that's what I have been told as well), I can't thank God enough for being so gracious and mercyful to me. I have been "flare-up free" for many years now. I pray for the many that aren't!

Audrey:

Goooodmorning, sister:-)

I am doing fine, thanks! Have a blessed day as well.

Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too:-)

God's Grace.

I'm stunned, I was diagnosed with Bursitis around the same time I was diagnosed with my auto-immune disease and I had no idea they might be related.

Methinks I need to stop being so passive and do a little more research to arm myself with knowledge.

Love to all and you are in my prayers.

Maryrose:

Why do research when I already did it for you (grin).

I had no clue either how many were related or even fell under the umbrella of arthritis. Never too old to learn huh?

Love you, girl and keeping you in my prayers.

God's Grace.

Hi Corry,

My name is Jenny and I am part of an online community called CarePlace, for people experiencing similar health related issues and their caregivers, including Rheumatoid Arthritis. We have recently added new Rheumatoid Arthritis related communities to the site.

As your blog relates to what we are doing at CarePlace, I was wondering if you might be willing to check out our site and let me know if you think it might be helpful to the people who communicate through and with you.

People can join multiple communities, share experiences, check out info on medical conditions and treatments and form their own groups within the site.

We have gotten great feedback and as you know the more people in various communities the more outreach and support that happens. Our users have really liked it so far and we are adding new features all the time based on what everyone is telling us.

It’s really important to us to get feedback from people like you about the site as we develop features – the site is www.careplace.com. You can add me as a friend (jend) and let me know what you think.

Thanks in advance!
Jenny (jend)
