An American’s view of Barcelona – Street photography

Earlier this month I went to Barcelona, Spain to cover a trade show. In the past, Tanya would join me on my travels, be they be within the country or overseas. Unfortunately, her Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease (RAD aka Rheumatoid Arthritis or RA) has made international travel a thing of the past for her. Hopefully she will find a good drug combination that will put her back into remission, but until that happens I will be doing most of my travels solo.

Since Tanya is unable to travel with me and I take far too many photos for her to sit down and go through the thousands I come home with, I have decided to create this abridged photo version so she can see the highlights of Barcelona. No need to feel too sorry for her, as she has been to Spain twice, so she knows about the good food and wine they have. This gallery is part of my commitment to write 365 blog posts to help bring awareness to the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation. Continue reading

Eating for better health

Okay, I know in my last RAD Caregiver post I said that my next article would be discussing stem cell research and Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease, but we recently started a group on Facebook, I Take Pictures of My Fruits and Vegetables Before I Juice Them, and we have had many people express interest in our new eating habits; in particular, what recipes we use. Well, the fact of the matter is that we do not have any recipes at all. However, we do have a lot of photos, so if you look at them you will see the recipe.

I have been juicing for about two years now and Tanya (my girlfriend, who has RAD) has recently decided to join me. I tried to get her into juicing earlier, but she just was not impressed by the taste. Then one night she watched the movie, ‘Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.’ The next morning she asked me to show her how to use the juicer. Things have never been the same. She got into it, big time.

Burzynski, South Park and RAD

Since I promised Tanya that I would write 365 blog posts that would help bring awareness of Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease (RAD) and to help promote the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation I have been attempting to be a little more aware of things that happen in our daily lives so I can be a little more diverse in my writings. While it would certainly be quite cute if all I did was write about our daily lives and how much fun we have together, it would not really do much to educate people about RAD.

Now, before I get started I want to apologize in advance as I know I am going to go off on tangents at times; in fact, this particular post is only part one of at least two parts. I usually write these things in my head before I sit down to my laptop, and there is a possibility that it will be a three part article. I will attempt to tie the tangents together so you will not leave confused, but perhaps will understand the frustration those with RAD deal with on a regular basis. I am afraid some of this frustration may be self imposed. Continue reading
