I can hardly believe that I've had rheumatoid arthritis (RA) for over 38 years! I've learned that accepting, adapting and adopting are important skills to cultivate when you live with a chronic health condition.
I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot and tell a little more about My RA Story on Health Central. I definitely have a new appreciation for models. All that posing, smiling and working hard to put your best face forward is no easy feat!
Thanks to Janine Coney for her patience and skill with the camera, as well as the team at Health Central and Remedy Media for helping to share what it's like to live with a chronic condition. I believe it gives others a chance to learn and possibly accept, adapt and adopt from those who travel before/with them.
