About this Live Yes! Connect Group:
Our vision for the Las Vegas Live Yes! Connect is for it to become a place where you can get together to help each other and let people know they are not alone. We believe that group support is extremely therapeutic while living with an illness. We hope to help make this support available to those who would like to take part, and build a community to feel connected as well as gain helpful information about how to live as full and happy of a life as possible.
My name is Liz and I have struggled with Rheumatoid Arthritis since 2013. It has been a struggle but I have refused to let it define me, and believe we must find joy in life despite or afflictions. I am an adventurer and a graphic artist who loves to read, engage in creative projects and nourish relationships with friends and family. I would like to faciltate the group because helping others is an essential part of my life, and I hope to provide any assistance to those suffering from arthritis through laughter, education and friendship.
I am currently employed as a Facility Manager/Accountant at a company that distributes gaming and amusement components. I was diagnose with RA, 2 years ago. And currently doing very well on my meds, with minimal flares. After about 1 1/2 years into my new journey, I decided I couldn't do this alone. People who do not have RA offer great advice, but when you are in pain, they just don't understand. That is when I decided to join the support group in Las Vegas.
Becoming a facilitator seemed to be what I was called to do. I am currently a group leader for women in my church and love doing it. I think my faith makes me strong enough to listen, and compassion enough to be there for the group.
