Chronically Mommy & Now Read My HIPS!

Dana Morningstar

United States, EnglishHealth

I have psoriatic arthritis, avascular necrosis of the hips, knees, and shoulders, fibromyalgia, sjogrens, and osteopenia (among other things). I had my left hip replaced at age 29, my right shoulder replaced in 2010, at age 35. I had my right hip replaced in May 2012. I still need to have the other 3 joints affected by AVN replaced. My husband and I adopted Michael in 2010. I am an empath, a medical intuitive and an energy healer. Whether you have JA, are a parent of someone with JA, or care for someone with JA, I am looking for Guest Bloggers every month! I am also looking for personal stories about those with AVN, Autoimmune Arthritis, fibromyalgia, and/or any chronic pain conditions every single month! If you have a Personal Story you would like to share, please email your story to Dana at Dana.GAGAIntrospective@outlook.com with your title, blog name and URL, your name as you would like it published on my two blogs and on my Facebook Pages, Twitter, etc. If you do not have a blog, that is OK, you can still share your story, simply send me your story in a Word Document with your picture attached and I will put it into my blog for you. It is that simple. Also, I am launching a new Arthritis Group in the GA area to team up with JAers. We will start a mentor group and a transition program. If interested, please contact me at Dana.GAGAIntrospective@outlook.com. I have the website but it is not up and running. You may take a look around to get a feel for what it will be like online. The Georgia Generations Arthritis Introspective will be a local group in the Atlanta area but anyone will be able to be a part of it online. Take a look at the GAGAIntrospective http://GAGAIntrospective.weebly.com and follow me @GAGAAMovement.
