How exciting! I can't wait to see what they come up with.

Let us know when it's available to watch, please!


Great post...& I LOVE the title!


do they want to come film my foot surgery tomorrow? i think it'd make a super reality bit, "the slice and dice of RA" hehe. thanks for the post, keep rockin' it!


I think arthritis in general needs a makeover to the public eye. Awhile back, I had contacted the Arthritis Foundation on their lack of information for college aged people and young adults with arthritis. This was like in July, when they replied immediately saying they would work on it....I have since re-emailed them a few times, and there has been no response. There is nothing out there to help me with going to college, being a young adult, who just happens to have arthritis. Their website is totally geared towards kids up to the age of 18, and anyone else over the age of 40.


How cool. I can't wait to see it.


Congrats Sara! I, too, am looking forward to seeing it so please keep us posted!

HI Sara,

This is my first comment on your site. :)
I thought I had RA, but after testing the doc thinks it's osteoarthritis. Even though we've emailed I thought I would share this about myself for folks who are regulars here at your site.

I'm an 'oldie' with arthritis. (age 51)
I give you and ALL the young ones so much props.!!!

THANK GOODNESS there is an internet for gatherings in this way to support one another. In years gone by, folks just suffered alone. AND I'm sure many do who don't think to even seek out online support.

I hunted around WebMD and located this link to their RA-TV :)
I bet this is where you will be featured.


xo xo


Thanks for that link, Deb. I've added it to my favorites so that when Sara's episode is shown I'll be ready!It has lots of great info.


If the episode is as informative and funny as this post, it'll be well worth seeing! Do let us know when it's up.


I love, love, love your blog! I was diagnosed at the age of 15 and I'm now almost 24. I have just devoured every post and I am thrilled that someone else out there knows how I feel! I've been searching for so long. I've tried everything, been through everything, and I feel I've missed out on so much of my life. I just enjoy your humor to it and I've been making my fiance read it so he understands me better. Thanks for doing this! I'm a faithful reader now... :] Best to you!


Melissa-I know, it is exciting! Who would have thunk it. will definitely let everyone know.

Sarah-eek, hope your foot surgery went ok-actually, better than ok.

Britta- I totally agree. I haven't spent much time on the AF website because it took me about 2 seconds to discern that it had almost nothing to do with me and my experience of RA. I don't get it.

Liz & Mer: thanks!! I can't wait to see it and share it!

Hey Deb-you are right-that's the link. They just launched it a few days ago, so we'll have to keep checking it out-they have done a lot of segments already. how cool-RA TV....

Penguin-thanks! Hopefully it will be....

Michelle- wow, thank you! I"m glad that you found me and left a comment so that I know about you, too! You are a veteran compared to me, as are many others, but thank god we can find each other online now and stick together. glad to find you.

Dear Sara,
First, let me say you have very cute feet, just an observation. Then if I could give you a thumb nail sketch of where naturopathic medicine sees RA coming from. Autoimmune diseases are interesting, there are aprox 80 to 100 with another 40 waiting for a name. Medical science cannot explain why and has not found a cure for even one. You can trigger one of them just by having an a car accident taking an aspirin or by starting a new exercise routine says latest research. Naturopathic medicine says, "Look for the root, it is in the basics beginning with what is on your fork, what toxins are in your body, what exercise do you do, what stress is in your life, what is your spiritual base". Our arrogance has led us down the wrong path we better stop and take a close look at what is happening. Autoimmune disease is the worst kind of contradiction; for an RA your immune system is attacking you in your own joints, a world upside down. God bless you in your search.

OMG, Sara! I just watched your videos and it so spoke to me in so many ways: (1) you look like a cuter, younger Miranda from "Sex & the City"; (2) you live in NYC and you talk about the "rush, rush" factor, (3) the commuting/shopping via subways, the list goes on and on...

I've already emailed this to so many people!!!

Thank you.
