We are in Tempe, Arizona for The Phoenix Forum where it is hot and sunny! I enjoyed day one of the forum but fizzled out yesterday and ended up spending most of the day in the room. I felt pressure in my head and extreme fatigue, it was not fun. But I knew to take the day off and I would have a chance to enjoy the events today. I took the dogs out for a walk twice today, much better than yesterday when I did not even want to walk down to the break room to get coffee. I meant to take the point and shoot camera out when I walked the dogs, but forgot. So this photo is of the courtyard from our room.
I used Picasa to edit the photo, using the Lomo-ish and Boost image processing effects as well as added my watermark text geekgoodgirl.com. The photo was taken with my Sony HD Cyber-shot point and shoot camera.
A couple days ago I started a birthday wish through causes.com to raise $1000 for Rheumatoid Patient Foundation. I am excited to find my goal of $1000 has almost been met, currently at $849 and I am hopeful by my birthday in two weeks that the donations will be over the goal of $1000.
Thank you so much to all the donors who are helping me reach this goal. Supporting the only non profit just for Rheumatoid Arthritis also known as Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease. Help me reach my goal by making a donation today.
This post is part of my 2012 RA Twist on Project 365. I created the above image using Adobe Photoshop.
I have started to gather information about stem cell therapies for Rheumatoid Arthritis also known as Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease. I decided to take advantage of Pinterest and made a board just for websites that have information about Stem Cell treatments that I find as I am researching it. This is pretty raw information, I am just bookmarking them with Pinterest as I go and have not checked to see if it is trusted information.
What triggered my interest? Well I have Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease and it is damaging my body. I just learned it is causing damage to my spine. My boyfriend Lloyd was in the middle of writing a post on his blog about a South Park episode about Stem Cells. We have done some international travels in the last few years and I thought why am I only choosing treatment that is available in the United States, when I could go elsewhere. So I decided to start researching what treatments are available in other countries and Stem Cell Treatments seem to come up often.
