I recently started blogging about my experiences growing up with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. However, my real motivation wasn't openly disclosed. Recently I had been thinking about starting a family and having children. However, this task seemed daunting with JRA. I searched the internet for support and other woman who had completed this journey and found limited (optimistic) advice and few people sharing their stories. I decided I wanted to chronicle my journey so future woman could have some support as well. However, I realized that I would not be able to publicly share some of these thoughts until my journey was well under way. So here lies some "secret" posts about my journey to start a family and hopefully one day in the future, I will be able to share them more publicly. You can read my main blog about other aspects of growing up with JRA at www.allgrownupwithjra.com.
