Kim Curry, 53. Pennsylvania. Scleroderma, RA.
I use my hands, even though they hurt, to comfort and love my child as my mother did for me. I want my daughter to learn compassion from my relationship with my mother. I want her to know that life continues regardless of the curveballs life throws at you.
Inflammatory arthritis may try to destroy your body, but it cannot diminish the love between mother and daughter. In fact, it can have the ability to help strengthen them. My mother and I sharing a similar daily struggle has deepened our relationship.
