parenting and children
Mariah discusses the joys, pains, and solutions she is discovering as a new parent with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Mariah explains why, when battling arthritis, the "small things" really do count.
My name is Lana and I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia at age 32. Additionally, a rear end auto collision in May left me with neck and back injuries that I am yet to recover from.
Arthritis patients and their loved ones can be especially vulnerable.
Dr. Laurie urges you to take time for yourself.
My husband and I have always believed in an allowance for our children -- we didn't want them to be distracted from school by jobs. But now that they're college students, all they want to do is spend our money like crazy. Why do they do this? -- Betty in Birmingham
No one in my family supports me. My husband and children will defend everyone under the sun, no matter their fault -- except for me. I give, and I give, and I give ... and get nothing in return. -- Luisa in Lexington
