September 2018 is Chronic Pain Awareness month.
Have you ever sprained your ankle? That's inflammation. Multiply that by 30 joints in your body, add flu like fatigue and mulitiply that by 30 years and that's rheumatoid arthritis (plus type 1 diabetes) then add faith, music, good friends, travel, learning, teaching, Netflix and that is my life. See a typical day in this video. Warning: The video contains needles, blood and country music.
