Spotlight on: Deb Constien by Nomi Harris Stanto

We are lucky to have Deb as part of our Arthritis Support Network in Wisconsin. Deb is nothing short of amazing. Deb was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 13 and wants folks to know that family, with her, comes first. She is incredibly active with her sons school, loves to scrapbook, bake and cook. It's important to note that there is really nothing that Deb does not have a hand-in when it comes to being the best possible advocate for our tribe. She really believes that having a support network around you makes all the difference in your healing journey.

Fall Harvest Eats By Carolyn Kosanouvong - Walker

Happy Fall Season to everyone in the Arthritis community! This is one of my favorite times of the year as we anticipate and prepare for the festivities of the upcoming holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Most of us may generally feel overwhelmed as we go through the seasonal changes that come with colder weather and our bodies are experiencing more pain than usual. Then there are emotional and physical stress that comes with entertaining, shopping, and possibly cooking for holiday events with family, friends, and office parties with business associates along with co-workers.

A Summer Gal ’s Fall Transition by Trina R.V. Wilcox

As a self-proclaimed summer gal, it’s always difficult to watch the daylight dim a little faster and feel the crispness in the air more frequently. When summer leaves, dragging along a jacket is required, not suggested, while long strolls with the dogs become quick, swift steps to let them “do their thing” as fast as possible. Even though summer must turn to fall, there’s still a little magic that comes with the new season. Since it’s coming no matter what, you might as well have fun and enjoy it.
