Let Me Introduce Myself

You may know me from my other blog, "brooklynrocks", mostly I am a photographer. Last October I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my hips and I find myself living with an unwanted companion. I just turned 64 and this disease hit me like a ton of bricks. At times very debilitating, I use a cane. Very humbling. On the subway home tonight, I thought "How can I get something positive out of what seems so negative" and it occurred to me to begin a new blog. Perhaps there are already many such blogs on this subject but this is mine and I welcome any and all comments, share your adventures with me. Doubts, fears, successes, therapies, exercises, diets, anything on your mind. I look forward to hearing from you.

  1. Deborah, how strange that I happened to look over at your blogroll and noticed this addition. Perhaps not so strange since I've been focused on learning more about arthritis since my 2.5 year old was diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis several weeks ago. I'm so sorry to hear that you are in such pain! I'm looking forward to seeing how you create something beautiful out of your "negative" diagnosis. ~ Kristin
