Hi. I’m Sheryl. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis when I was 25. I’m now 36. Last year or so I found myself thinking seriously about creating an online residence where arthritis warriors of all ages could visit for wellness tips, health hacks and gadget reviews. This year, I decided to put my keyboard where my mouth is and set this idea in motion. The result? ArthritisFriend.com (aka your new BFF).Now, I’m not a doctor and I don’t have a medical degree. My knowledge comes from having lived with RA for the last decade of my life. Learning about my condition and, more importantly, how to live with arthritis has been a bumpy road that at times has left me feeling scared and alone. I know I am not the only one out there that has felt like this. There are 46 million people (self-reported, doctor-diagnosed) living with arthritis-related diseases, with more being diagnosed each year, at every age.
Let's help each other out!
