About Positively Rheumatoid

We are two mamas of two who met through the wonders of the internet and have been sending each other weird GIFs, funny faces, and medical questions for the past few years. We are learning to live with chronic illness and manage work, home and family. Also, just have to give a huge THANKS to our husbands who put up with all of our crazy health stuff and all the extra worry and work that comes with it.
