I’m re-blogging my round up of last years RA blog week. It might just help wet your appetite for this years event
This week I’ve had the pleasure of participating in the Annual RA Blog Week. It’s a wonderful event for bloggers from around the world to share their insights on what it’s like living with Rheumatoid Arthritis & often other associated autoimmune diseases.
Each day of the week a topic is chosen for bloggers to write about. On the last day of the week we are asked to highlight some of the great blogs we have read during the blogging event.
This year I can’t choose. I was really impressed with the varying writing styles & insights that each blogger brought to the event.
So, I’ve decided to highlight & applaud everyone 😊
Below are the topics for each day of the week. If you click on the topic title for each day it will take you to the most inspiring & awesome blogs.

I was sitting at our local cafe this week, which is situated on a Point overlooking the Bay and beautiful Islands beyond. It really couldn't be more idyllic and I am blessed to live so close to such a gorgeous place on Australia's east coast. As my husband and I were sipping our cool drinks … Continue reading The Tides of Chronic Illness
For 8 days in November 2017 I lay in a hospital bed basically writhing in pain. Rewind to the beginning of that 8 day period and I was being rushed to hospital in an ambulance as my left leg, the one with the non union femur fracture, was like a wooden block and it would … Continue reading A Hospital Stay To Remember
