I need one of these but I need it to say RA and Colitis. If autoimmune diseases are in your vocabulary, whether daily, or just with infrequent flairs, this phrase rings so true.

This picture hit my facebook feed from the ‘Fighting Rheumatoid Arthritis’ page on the perfect day. Don’t you love when God confirms that you’re doing good, no matter how you feel about it. I am applying for scholarships as I find them because I’m going back to school to get my Master’s Degree. I received my ‘Proof of Diagnosis’ form from my dr for the RA scholarship I am appplying for. She diidn’t just fill out the little box confirming my diagnosis of RA like my gastrointerologist did for my colitis, she wrote a letter of recommendation and commended me for pursuing higher education while teaching/coaching and raising a family while battling RA since I was 15. She didn’t have to do the letter but she did it anyway and her words meant so much to me. Validation that I’m heading in the right direction.
