Not Just Arthritis: Honoring Two Rheummates
Today the #rheum community lost two of its rheummates.
I’d like to take a moment and honor them. Maybe you pray. Maybe you just give them a moment of your time mentally. Whatever it is you do, please do it.
This disease is not “just arthritis.” It’s not just joint deformity and a bottle of Aleve. It’s vasculitis. It’s heart failure. Behind the statistics are real people leading very real lives.
It is never “just arthritis.” Patients like Emma and Ali deserve more. They deserve better.
Please send your love to their families in a tweet, comment, or just a passing thought.
