I wish to mark World Autoimmune Day by reminding all of you who don't have this debilitating, motion-restricting disease to get out and move. If it works, use it. Please. You don't know how fortunate you are to be able to get active, whether it be in the garden, in the park, at the gym, or even around the house. Show your appreciation for a fully functioning body by using it.
Will I see you at the pool today?
