We Pledge to Raise Arthritis Awareness

Let’s commit ourselves to take the pledge…to spread the arthritis awareness amongst people. On one hand it is an easy way to have awareness days but we have got to follow up with concrete commitments. What comes with getting involved in awareness campaigns is a responsibility to do your bit about what you are aware of. I often questioned myself, hosting specific awareness days is fine but then what happens after the day passes by! I believe positive and genuine lip service is surely a service to the community, in its very own magnitude if a sufficient number of people get involved it can shift the mindset of a generation! Even if you speak to 5 people in a month and spread just basic awareness it will make the world a better place, by saying this I mean those five people will have at the back of their mind what’s arthritis and it might ignite them to know more and they in turn would speak to another 5 people. You can also leverage your network and social media.

Let’s start the awareness chain and let it spread…it is a small drop in the ocean
from our end but yes, it’s a drop for sure!

Let us strengthen our confidence by sharing experiences

We have just finished our Annual World Arthritis Day Meet.
What a memorable event it was..participants described that one of the most
important take home point was meeting others with the same disease and sharing
experiences with them.
The exchange of experiences and knowledge from doctors, fellow patients and
other healthcare professionals made them less worried when they heard them talk.
They knew that periods with increasing and fluctuating symptoms were normal
when having arthritis. Sharing experiences suggest that symptom validation in
group sharing environment gives a legitimacy of symptoms and fears as normal
patient education may endorse participants with increased empowerment and
control of their situation through separating the disease from the person and
consider the arthritis symptoms as challenges they can work on.
Try and connect with other patients and share and hear their challenges and you
share your side.
We need to encourage, lift and strengthen one another.
For the positive energy spread to one will be felt by us all. For we are connected,
one and all.
Stay connected…
