Layers of an Onion

2009 was a world of change on my perspective on life. Really. I feel like I woke up from a coma realizing what is important and I was on a mission - but taking a turtle as opposed to a hare approach to my plan. I must thank RA Guy for inspiring me. In one of his posts he talks about his health care team. And it got me thinking - who is on Team Graham? (crickets) Hence, my mission to create Team Graham, mobilize the troops and move me towards a better place of health.

So far, I've recruited my naturopath, a physiotherapist, a yoga instructor and a therapist. Team Graham is growing by leaps and bounds! Oh, yes, and my trusty rheumatologist and ortho surgeon. I'm looking for a better state of health, and have tried several of the above approaches before - separately - with some success. I'm looking to gain some help from each area in an effort to navigate the Prednisone-reduction and the post-prednisone era that is coming. I know that further flares are around the corner, and I want to be prepared.

It sounds like a great team! Looking forward to hearing more about how each choose to treat you and whether they work together. That was always my hope - to have a team that worked together.
