aubrey, start the revolution!

I meant to post this awhile ago, but somehow never got around to it. It’s a guest column in The (Kinston, N.C.) Free Press, a paper I worked at for more than a year.

In it, a twenty-something mother and wife describes her battle with rheumatoid arthritis, something that she was diagnosed with less than a year ago.

Please read it, and maybe learn something from it. Everything she describes in her column is true, and it really resonated with me, anyway. Hopefully, for those of you who are healthy and don’t have to deal with this kind of thing, it will open your eyes a bit to the lonely struggles of people around you. Honestly, the judgmental attitudes and preconceived notions of what arthritis looks like can hurt more than the disease itself.
