Beginnings are always a little scary, aren't they? Whether it's getting all settled in for a roller coaster ride, or preparing for a new job...or whatever...starting into the unknown can unravel one for a while!
What a busy week! I have been blessed to have my granddaughter visit me for a few days before she goes off to college for the first time. It's not anything like sending her to kindergarten...worse, in some ways! As an adult in a rather rocky world, and having been to college myself, I know that amidst the wonderment of higher education stalks difficulties and...sometimes...bad people.

I have to admit, when Lene asked me to write about Endings and Beginnings this month all sorts of things bounced around in my head. Anything from TV shows to projects in my small wood shop and at this time of year who could not think of the obvious end of year and looking forward to the new year. What struck me the most though was the Endings and Beginnings posed by being diagnosed with RA.
I received my DX several years ago, and pretty much "grew up" in my RA life on this website. I found most of the information I needed to confront the RA beast here and this is also where I first chatted with other people that also are suffering from the pains and pitfalls of RA. Thinking back on those days they seem like a lifetime ago, and in reality they kind of are.
