Live Yes! Connect relaunched: 2019
Live Yes! Connect Facilitator: Paula Type of Arthritis: Rheumatoid Arthritis
About this Live Yes! Connect Group:
My vision for this Live Yes! Connect group is that we develop a community that both processes our challenges and celebrates our joys. I became a facilitator because I want to help and get to know others on this path. I hope I can bring comfort to those who are particularly struggling. I also hope I can help a community form that is close in both proximity and relationships.
Autoimmune diseases and Arthritis run in my family. My grandmother had RA. My mother had osteoarthritis. I have RA and osteoarthritis. My teen daughter has Juvenile Arthritis. Our greatest coping mechanism is humor. All the women in my family with arthritis have managed to find humor and joy in our lives despite our challenges. At the same time, I understand the need to vent, process, and be heard when it comes to dealing with our diseases.
I am a freelance writer and Director of Communications by trade and enjoy knitting and hiking for hobbies. I have an incredibly supportive husband and 3 amazing teens. We live in San Diego North County.
