About this Live Yes! Connect Group:     

My vision for the Philadelphia Live Yes! Connect group is a self- advocating group of like-minded individuals, who understands what each of us are going through; where we can support and encourage each other to keep moving by educating ourselves on self-care, and plan social activities to benefit all.

About:  Carolyn

Hello! My name is Carolyn. I can appreciate the struggles and challenges associated with living with arthritis for the past 30 years. I had to retire early because of the arthritis.

I cannot count the various medications prescribed over the years that were to ease the pain, only to team with the arthritis to diminish my social life, and in some instances created other health challenges. The depression that followed was almost unbearable.

I thank God, for the doctors, nurses, and therapists, who did not give up on me. After going through pain management, and working with youth I have been afforded the opportunties to reach beyond the arthritis and accomplish things that was once desires.
