I am on Facebook a good bit, and I joined the RA Chicks: Women with Rheumatoid Arthritis group. It’s great. I tried to join the RA Chicks website, but haven’t been able to make my login “take.” It’s probably a “too much traffic” thing, so I’ll try again tomorrow or the next day.
BUT, I found a really good educational site: Rheumatoid Arthritis: A Complicated Killer? It goes over every system of the body and describes and illustrates what RA can do to it. Very informative, and very scary!
I think I’ve already mentioned Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy. He lives in South America and has a marvelous blog!
Another place I’ve found is New Way RA. It’s a web-based talk show MC’d by Deborah Norville. You can order the CDs of the show, and you can watch the Season 1 shows on line at any time, and the Season 2 shows as or after they show. MY OWN Rheumatologist, W. Hayes Wilson, MD, will be one of the panelists!!! (Down, girls! He’s married to a lovely woman who is also a rheumatologist and they are in practice together. They have two beautiful daughters.) He is a fabulous physician and a great rheumatologist!
The shows are informative and interesting – and fun! Sara Nash, who blogs The Single Gal’s Guide to Rheumatoid Arthritis: Your guide to RA (and more) on the web. There is more about the various people on the show HERE.
So enjoy exploring the new resources!!
