I stumbled across this fun li’l web tool (aka time-suck) the other day and tried it out by making a cloud with all the words that came to mind when I spent a few minutes thinking about how I manage my disease. Here’s my result. I also used this tool to create a simple header for my blog until I get the snazzier one uploaded.

@Julia Y – Ha! I hear ya on both fronts. I kept my word cloud PG, but there are definitely some choice words that I use in my head and out loud that would not be fit to print.
I spent the first 6 years after my RA diagnosis without knowing a single younger person (or older person, for that matter) who was going through anything remotely like what I was going through, so I wanted to give back by starting this blog. Plus, I’m kind of an information junkie, so I figured I might as well share my findings with the masses. Hope you are well!
I would make one… but it would mostly be expletives. You’re much more eloquent about it than I care to be at times 😀
And thanks for starting this blog. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 5 years ago at the age of 21, and it reeeeeally sucked to have to figure everything out on my own. Doing something like this will help newbies feel a bit less overwhelmed and alone, and those feelings can be harder to manage than the disease/disorder itself.
