60-Second Guide To Rheumatoid Arthritis

60 Second Guide to RA

During the past few years, Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy has read page after page (after page) of information about rheumatoid arthritis. I have often found many of the explanations to be somewhat dry and scientific, somewhat devoid of a real human voice of what it’s like to live with rheumatoid arthritis. Sometimes I  have difficulty getting through a multiple page article with all of the medical jargon and explanations – and I live with this illness!

I have also hoped for a short (yet comprehensive) non-technical explanation of rheumatoid arthritis that I can use to share with friends and family. On many occasions, I have struggled while trying to describe what rheumatoid arthritis is, exactly what an autoimmune illness is,  and how rheumatoid arthritis differs from osteoarthritis.

During the past few days, I decided to put together my own guide. (Yes, I was just looking for an excuse to make some more little cartoon graphics!) No medical dictionary is required to read this guide, it has lots of colorful graphics, just a dash of humor, and the best part – it only takes a minute to read. (A countdown timer is included – really!)

Please read my 60-Second Guide To RA, and let me know what you think. (I have also added a permanent link on the top navigation bar.) You can also download a pdf version of this guide.

Please don’t forget to share with friends and family! Together we can increase awareness of rheumatoid arthritis – it only takes a minute!

Stay tuned…for the next adventure of Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy
