Oh how I can relate to the tin man!
One of my new Twitter buds has a slogan he uses and attributes to his Rheumatologist – “Motion is Lotion!” Keep active and those joints will stay happy. The tin man was stuck in one spot for years but let’s get moving, ‘Stand Tall’, and Move those joints as much as we can.
If people with AS could carry around a magic oil can for when those creaky joints act up – wouldn’t that be amazing? Unfortunately, for many the cure seems just out of reach. I speak with people everyday who can’t access the medications that would provide them with relief. We need to find the “heart” in our country and figure out how to make some changes – people shouldn’t have to live in pain when there are medications that can help.
Day 116 was made with fluid acrylics and tin.
