This is Wonderful DaapStudent13. How did you come to wanting to design a handbag for Arthritis Sufferers? Just Curious
I agree with the other bloggers. A Magnetic opening would be great. Wider Shoulder Straps, pockets, pulls and bales that are a nice size so we don't have to grip so closely and Lightweight (without all of our belongings in it). I prefer designer handbags, but I'm finding that Leather Handbags are getting to heavy especially when I have flare ups in hands, wrists and shoulders. I LOVE Soft Leather Handbags but they're not the best for Arthritis sufferers.
Good Luck with you project and I look forward to seeing what you've designed! )View Thread
I was diagnosed with RA 8 years ago and I am currently taking Humira Shots.
For the past two weeks, my knees have been very achy and stiff. Not just in the morning, throughout the day. About 6 months ago I started walking 3 miles, 3-4 times a week. I haven't had any problems with my knees until now. It's been quite cold in Los Angeles, and I'm assuming this has a lot to do with the aches. But it seems my knees are getting the worst of it now. The achiness is making very difficult to exercise. Is this a temporary thing? Besides taking the shots, what else can I do to help ease this? ThanksView Thread
In addition to taking the Humira shot every two weeks, I have been taking Aleve when I need it. My Doctor wants to put me on Methotrexate (spelling) as well, but I refuse to. I don't want to be put on any more medications, unless I have no other choice.
I'm going to attribute the achy knees to the cold weather and just going to keep going on. The disease is what it is and I can't let it get me down. )View Thread
