Note: In this post I will ask for donations. Although a donate link can always be found in my sidebar, I only directly ask for donations once a year. If this bothers you, please skip this post.
Readership of this blog continues to grow, so much so that page hits have doubled during this current month. (I am not even able to attribute this recent uptick to this particular post Survivor: Tierra Del Fuego Season 19, which a while back was actually one of the top Google search results for anything related to the Survivor television show…how that happened, I have no idea!)
If you enjoy the content that is available here on Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy, and are able to do so financially, please click on the donate button at the bottom of this post and make a $25 donation.
97.1 cents of every dollar that is donated (2.9 cents are deducted by PayPal) will be spent on the following items:
- Monthly Internet and annual web hosting fees associated with RheumatoidArthritisGuy.com, which need to be renewed at the end of this month.
- My medical expenses, which are by far the biggest line item on my monthly budget. I do not have medical insurance, which means that I pay 100% out-of-pocket for all of my doctors visits, physical therapy sessions, lab tests, and prescription medications.
- Savings towards the purchase of a new computer. I have had two computers die on me this past year, and am left with a 17-inch heavy-as-heck laptop computer that is more than five years old. The electrical connector no longer works correctly, and the latch that holds the battery in place is broken and has since been replaced with duck tape. Not only does this make the computer less portable than it should be, but it also results in numerous unexpected shutdowns during any given day. (Not even flares are as annoying!)
- Chocolate and ice cream, because medicines alone aren’t enough to make this superhero feel good!
- A new cape. Okay, I’m just joking about this item…but who knows…maybe one day?
Your generous contributions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
