I was diagnosed with Arthritis (JIA) at age four, which means I have spent my whole live learning how to live a full, happy and active life in harmony with a chronic illness.

The one, starring Steve Martin and John Candy, where Martin, an advertising executive travelling home for Thanksgiving, gets bumped from first class to coach and has to sit next to and over-friendly, over-helpful, shower curtain ring salesmen played by Candy. Travel chaos ensues. (more…)
