Today is International Women's Day. It's a day to celebrate all the women in our lives, and to give due recognizition to those women who are trying to change their lives and lives of other women around them.
It's a fact that most people with autoimmune diseases tend to be women. Pain, fatigue and all that other good stuff is terrible. But, I'd like to think the reason more women get it is because women are strong enough to handle anything. We're tough. :) I've met many wonderful ladies (as well as gentlemen) with arthritis and other autoimmune diseases, and I love how many of us become great friends and really help each other through tough times as well as happy times.
People are wonderful, and many women prove this everyday. Whether they're mothers raising (or who did raise) great children, business women making plans and deals worth millions, artists who are out to make the world more beautiful, or anything else that's possibly imaginable, we owe a lot to women.
