In this issue of JointHealth™ monthly:

People with arthritis are “heroes”

Arthritis presents many challenges to everyday activities that most people take for granted, like getting dressed or cooking a meal. Adversity can foster great strength too. People who live with arthritis are “heroes” because in spite of their pain, disability, and fatigue, they still go to work, raise their children, care for elderly parents, maintain relationships with friends and spouses, and for the sake of emotional and physical health continue to participate in hobbies and exercise.

Last fall, we asked those of you who live with arthritis to tell us about the challenges—and triumphs—you have faced. To all those who contributed their stories, thank you! We were thrilled with the response and now we have many heartwarming and inspiring stories to share with you, in this issue of JointHealth™ monthly.
