Rheumatoid Awareness Day February 2nd
Friday, February 01, 2013
This year there finally is a Rheumatoid Awareness Day and yes it is on GroundHog Day plus there is a a ribbon I have added it my profile pic as a RAD suffer
It is interesting when people ask me what 's wrong and I tell them Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease they look at me like I have two heads then I say the more common Rheumatoid Arthritis then they proceed ot tell me I'm to young for "Arthritis" so I then have to explain its not the Arthritis grandma gets. Maybe now more people will understand what it is most likely not but it is a start.
While on the subject of RAD as it is a form of inflammation I was watching Brenda Watson on PBS this weekend and she was speaking of "silent inflammation" which can lead ot all kinds of disease which she suggest that we use a Probiotic's daily and take Omega 3 Well I started on Monday and with the probiotic I'm feeling better in the stomach I was always bloated and gassy it is helping can't wait to see how I feel in a months time.
She was also speaking of "leaky gut" still doing some research on that.
Next January by far was not my best month but at the same time not my worst month New month ahead of me .
