Thanks for stopping by. Originally, I wanted to provide a place where patients could learn about RA and related issues. This site will be a cross between informational website & personal blog.
Here are a few things about me:
I was diagnosed with Raynauds at age ten, thus my liking for warm socks.
I like to play my guitar & violin.
I have degrees in both mathematics and linguistics.
I have worked as a technical writer and as a junior high school teacher. Teaching is more fun; writing pays better.
I freelance on occasion, designing custom databases or doing technical writing.
I am a Christian.
I alternate between refusing to let RA change who I am, and it defining my every moment of existence.
It’s not who I am, but it affects everything I do.
I like to read, grow vegetables, sew, and make cold-process soap.
Our family has three alpacas,
four three four five
four five four some horses,
23 54 50 24 28 20 13 39 a small flock of ducks,
and 5 11 19 15 a small herd of cows.
Since I was raised a city-girl, this has been quite a change for me!
I like to spin yarn from the alpaca fiber and turn it into knitted garments (mostly socks).
Recently a few people who I know 3D have found this blog. Please respect the fact that I write anonymously here; you are welcome (encouraged) to leave comments as long as you don’t reveal my identity or location (nothing more specific than Western WA).
I can be contacted by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that including numerous links in email will probably result in my ISP routing your message to my spam filter, where it might sit for months before being discovered.
