What is your favorite quote?

What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.

What is your philosophy on life and living with chronic disease?

We were given a choice: we can either be miserable or joyful. At times the choice can be difficult. But when we triumph over adversity, it makes the joy that much more wonderful.

Who inspires you and why?

Anyone who can survive & still find happiness in life.

What would your advice be to someone just beginning on a chronic disease journey?

You are not weak. This will only prove how strong you really are.

Introduction

I just turned 28 and have been living with juvenile onset Rheumatoid Arthritis since childhood. It's been a tough journey so far, but on a brighter note, I'm finally learning how to truly relish in the goodness of life.
