About this Arthritis Support Network:
I would like to bring support to adults living with all types of Arthritis. Meeting in a safe and welcoming environment help provide education through their journey of Rheumatic disease. Empower health and well-being in the expression of how it impacts daily living through partnership and social gathering combat isolation and a chance to be a part of a community.
Hello! My name is Barb. I am a licensed dental hygienist in Maryland. I have a Masters degree in Acupuncture and bring a holistic approach to my patient care. I am presently taking classes with Johns Hopkins Medicine on Living Well with Chronic Illness. I find learning new things fun. I was diagnosed over three years ago with Rheumatoid Arthritis and other autoimmune challenges. I had symptoms way before I was diagnosed. I saw multiple disciplines of doctors and was told my body tests fine, it must be stress. Pure luck landed me with a Rheumatologist door step. I wish I had better information earlier so I would not have chased after fad or misdirected remedies. I faced many disappointments expecting to restore perfect health. Often I felt lonely not able to keep up with others. I am still a learner in my own personal manifestation of my Arthritis. I am feeling more at home in my body.
I’m starting an Arthritis Support Network in my area because the need is great and no one is stepping up to the plate in this area. I know many patients who have expressed frustration with the lack of knowledge. I have a knack for bring people together. I look forward to tapping into a wealth of knowledge and experience from the Arthritis Support Network.
