November 21st 2pm: Juvenile Arthritis Support Meeting: Come meet other parents and kids/teens with JRA. Let’s talk about what to do after the diagnosis, how to make life a little bit easier, and natural approaches to easing pain. Meet at the Old Brogue/Katie’s Coffeehouse at 2pm. The restaurant is divided into two sections and the coffeehouse is through the door on the right side of the porch. I will have a red mug!
November 1st at 4pm: Monthly Stretch and Relaxation Class:$5 The class will start with some simple warm ups while standing up and then we will move to the floor and do some gentle stretches and easy exercises. We will end with a 5 minute meditation. It will last about 30 minutes. All the exercises and stretches will be very easy. If anyone has any difficulty moving from standing to sitting, I have some techniques to help with this problem, as I’ve experienced it myself. Also, this will be a very private and comfortable setting. No judging and no pressure, just relax and do what you can.
November 12th at 9pm: Dr. Bianca Garilli and the Causes of Rheumatoid Arthritis: This is a tele-seminar, meaning anyone can call in from around the country and listen to her presentation. She contacted me personally to offer this seminar to our group! We will call in from my house, but you will most likely also be able to call in from your own home once I get the number, email me if you would like to do this. Here is what she told me about it:
