NYC Sick Chick Club
An informal group for younger adults (20-50) who suffer from autoimmune diseases like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Ankylosing Spondylitis, etc. Our goal is just to get together with other people who “get it” when it comes to dealing with an invisible illness. This group is not limited to women. We’d love to have some sick dudes join us, too!

Mutiny on the Body
I am just an average woman, married with daughters in college and diagnosed with autoimmune diseases (Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sjogren’s Syndrome, Raynaud’s Syndrome). I have spent years trying to figure out how to turn living with autoimmune diseases into a positive experience. Then a friend suggested that I share some of my personal  struggles and insights about living with autoimmune diseases. I thought about it. She was right. I am not the only person with a variety of autoimmune diseases. I can learn a lot from others with autoimmune diseases and hopefully they could learn from me. Also, I should probably put my college education to use-English and journalism major. I hadn’t written any thing for publication for over 20 years. I took a big step and started this blog. My skills are rusty and I am still looking for my voice, but I hope that you will hang in there with me.

Ride with PsA
I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis in July 2010. My husband and I had just returned to the UK after living in France for 8 years. I had recently given birth to my youngest son and it was during my pregnancy that the pain started in my left wrist. It grew steadily worse until, by the time my baby was born in February 2010, I could barely lift him. I went to the doctor in France who told me it was tendonitis and advised me to wear a wrist support and take paracetamol for the pain.
