Normally Fridays are dedicated to featuring my favorite bloggers and authors for my Be Our Guest Fridays series but today, I’m honored to be the guest over at My Fruitful Home with my experience with motherhood and life with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA).
Though my RA is well managed with medication and somewhat by diet, days with RA are unpredictable. Besides the physical pain that comes with the disease, there is also the emotional toll that RA takes on me and worse, my family.
My blogging friend Tanya at My Fruitful Home knows what it’s like to live with chronic illness. As a fibromyalgia patient and blogger herself, she strives to raise awareness of chronic illnesses with her Chronic Illness Interview Series. Tanya is a fellow planner addict and mom of two and has great ideas on living fruitfully with chronic illness. In particular, Tanya has a great post about books for living with chronic illness and Top 10 Helpful Apps for Living with Chronic Illness.
So go read my post from the heart where I’m opening up about motherhood and Rheumatoid Arthritis, how it feels to be a mom with a chronic illness, what helps me cope with RA and how it impacts my kids and tell my name and chronic illness twin Tanya that I sent you! I hope my interview helps other mothers with RA know they aren’t alone, some tips to help you juggle life with chronic illness and the unexpected lessons RA has taught my kids.
Don’t worry next week I’ll be back to feature another guest. If you want to know more about Be Our Guest Fridays, here you go…
