Chronically Mommy Is Returning Very Soon...

Chronically Mommy is returning very soon. My blog is currently under construction. I am doing some minor renovating and will begin blogging for the New Year, possibly before. I can't wait to start up again. I have missed all of my followers! I love every single one of you! You have helped me to become who I am today! I could never have continued my blog without all of your support. Please be patient, and please continue to support this blog as well as my other blog Now Read My HIPS! Pass this information on to anyone that you know may be interested in knowing...To be continued...

Being Chronically Mommy...

Welcome to the second in my chronic pain blog series. My first was my most well-known about my life struggle, balance, etc. with chronic pain and illness in "I Already Gave My Right Arm To Be Ambidextrous!" It is now titled "Now Read My HIPS!" and the focus has changed a bit to be more about how I am a woman with several joint diseases and conditions with a shoulder replacement and two hip replacements and am belly dancing! Visit Now Read My HIPS! to follow that entertaining, fun journey (alreadygavertarm2bambidextrous.blogspot.com). I also have a Blog Talk Radio Show with the same title about chronic pain and healing.

This blog is a little bit different. It has been focusing on my being a mommy and having a chronic illness. I have been and will continue to focus on health and pain info as well that I once wrote about in Now Read My HIPS! I think it is important to separate this from the rest of my life. It is not easy to have a chronic illness, but adding a child to the mix certainly has its share of trying times as well as beautiful, unforgettable moments.


I am so grateful for our little boy Mick. I can't believe that he is 6 years old as of December of 2016. Time has flown by! He is a dream come true. He has completed my confusing, complicated life. In a very huge way, he has made my life a lot more worth living. Although I have a wonderful husband, we always wanted a family, and I feel like we are now complete and happy. I have something to wake up to, and I have something to live for~Mick! It really is it's own microcosm of my life~Being Chronically Mommy!

 Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker
Help, I need somebody,
Help, not just anybody,
Help, you know I need someone, help.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me.

And now my life has changed in oh so many ways,
My independence seems to vanish in the haze.
But every now and then I feel so insecure,
I know that I just need you like I've never done before.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now these daya are gone, I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Families are Forever

IAAM/WAAD is teaming up with the Arthritis Foundation (US) and EULAR to make WAD!!

I am Dana. I have Psoriatic Arthritis, Sjogren's & possible Lupus & Ankylosing Spndylitis. IAAM Waving for WAD!


IAAM/WAAD is teaming up with the Arthritis Foundation (US) and EULAR (European League Against Rheumatism) to make World Arthritis Day (WAD), October 12th, a ginormous awareness event for all the groups of arthritis. In doing this, we are asking you to participate in the WAVE for WAD campaign!

It's simple:

1. Take a photo or video of you waving OR doing the wave OR riding a wave, etc. It is your changce to get really creative!
2. Submit it to: http://www.worldarthritisday.org/waving-photo-upload
3. Each wave counts for a wave from your country! Periodic mentions of which countries are in the lead will be mentioned. Let's each work hard to get our countries in the lead! Let's lift up those rankings, people!

IAAM is making it even more fun by posting CALL TO ACTION Challenges. Should you choose to accept, you are in for loads of FUN!!!!!!!!

WAVE for WAD: Challenge #1- Take a photo of yourself or others waving while holding a sign that states the type of arthritis you have. This challenge is aimed to show that the arthritis diseases affect diffferent ranges of age,--a whole spectrum of ages from babies to the elderly--and there are different types of arthritis as well which can help to differentiate different branches. Feel free to use the specific name of the arthritis type(s) (ie: Psoriatic Arthritis, Osteoarthritis) OR a descriptive name (ie: Autoimmune Arthritis, Degenerative Arthritis, etc).

Submit it to: http://www.worldarthritisday.org/waving-photo-upload and see it posted live soon! Follow them on the WAD facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/worldarthritisday) as well as the WAAD facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/WorldAutoimmuneArthritisDay) and IAAM facebook (pagehttps://www.facebook.com/InternationalAutoimmuneArthritisMovement). Use it to challenge your friends and see if they will also take the Wave for Arthritis Challenge #1!...and when it comes to IAAM, it there is a Challent #1, you better believe there will be a #2, #3, #4, etc. etc., etc.,...

ATTENTION AUTOIMMUNE ARTHRITIS'ERS:
THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO START CHANGING THE WAY THE WORLD VIEWS "ARTHRITIS"!


IAAM was brought in to the 2012 World Arthritis Day (WAD) campaign to help bring more awareness to Autoimmune Arthritis so LET'S
DO IT! While you may always simply upload a photo of you waving, IAAM has put an awareness spin on the Wave for WAD campaign by posting Call to Action Challenges!

Challenge #1: We are starting out easy, but in true IAAM fashion they'll get more challenging and more FUN ;). Take a photo of yourself, your friends, anyone with Autoimmune Arthritis, wave to WAD BUT ADD SOMETHING TO SHOW WHAT TYPE OF ARTHRITIS YOU HAVE. If you have an Autoimmune Arthritis disease, show it! If you have OA, write down Degenerative Arthritis and show that- The purpose is to start DIFFERENTIATING THE TERMINOLOGY FOR CHALLENGE #1.

Once you've done this and downloaded it to www.worldarthritisday.org your country will get another "wave" added to their total, so in addition to awareness you are also helping to make YOUR country the leader in the awareness campaign.

Come on Autoimmune Arthritisers! NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO START CHANGING THE WAY THE WORLD VIEWS ARTHRITIS!
