Hi, I’m Katie. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at the ripe old age of 23. It was a dark time in my life; processing my diagnosis, researching all of the negative symptoms I would be experiencing, working and paying bills. I felt like I had nowhere to turn for real life information about dealing with RA. Two years later, I started this blog.
I am a freelance blogger, passionate about autoimmune research as I have family members impacted by diseases like Psoriatic Arthritis, Thyroid complications, Schizophrenia, and gout. My hope is to provide a place for mamas with Autoimmune Diseases to connect, vent, share, learn and travel this journey together.
I like to learn & write about music, parenting, healthcare advances, technology, alternative therapy for autoimmune diseases such as yoga, acupuncture, healthy eating and other forms of self care. I also vent about the pain, anxieties and complications that come with having an autoimmune disease. My hope is that you’ll feel comfortable sharing your experiences here, too.
Feel free to email me with any questions, comments or suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Namaste!
