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…
