About this Arthritis Support Network:
Our vision for this Arthritis Support Network is for it to be a place where we can come together and openly talk about our thoughts without any fear of judgment. It will be a safe place where having fun, thinking with an open mind & supporting each other are the only requirements. We are so excited to be leading a group in Tuscaloosa and can't wait to meet all of you!
Hi everyone! I'm Casey and I'm in my 30s. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis in 2008. I enjoy painting and coloring. I can't do everything I could before but I try and do most of what I can. I'm on disability so I'm home all the time. I have always wanted to help people and I'm happy to have this chance.
I wanted to become a group leader because initially I didn't realize there was help and support for someone like me until I attended the Arthritis Introspective Gathering Conference G9. The overwhelming support and friendships I made in that one weekend made me realize a Support Network had to be set up in Alabama for people with Arthritis.
I am a 40-something year old working mother with two awesome teenage boys who help me out a lot. I work for a very busy local rheumatology clinic where I have done a little bit of everything from new patient referrals, insurance verification, and front desk receptionist. I was diagnosed with JRA at 15 years old after a year of what I now refer to as the year of weird where my body didn't know what to do anymore. I love a great conversation and am an experienced Netflix binger. I cannot get enough Alabama football in the fall and love to cross stitch when I can.
