World Autoimmune Arthritis Day

Tomorrow is World Autoimmune Arthritis Day!  For anyone who doesn’t know about it, there is a virtual conference this weekend hosted by a whole bunch of autoimmune arthritis peeps.  Here’s the link:

I found several interesting articles already and there are going to be a bunch of presentations as well.  From what I understand most of the presentations will be accessible for a couple of days so you don’t have to watch them at their original air time.

Why is World Autoimmune Arthritis Day important?  Awareness.  Do most people even know what autoimmune arthritis means?  (It’s a  term that encompasses a bunch of different diseases- lupus, RA, spondylitis, and a bunch more. )  I’m excited about the conference because it is bringing together a bunch of information from a variety of sources and putting it in one easy to access place.  I love being able to find information easily and the amount of time I spend researching is a bit crazy.

Anyway, that’s it for today.  Unless I am going to whine about having a cold and not being able to sleep.  Or about my hair falling out.  Or about the new swelling in my ankle.  Or… well, that’s it for today.  Hope everyone has a good weekend!
