I am writing this post to share with others the benefits of crocheting while ill. I've been sick since1999, and have recently been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, in my spine I have arthritis, degenerative disc disease and spasms so bad they're causing my spine to twist and curve. I honestly do not know how I would have survived this long if I didn't crochet. Words are failing me. I hope to read this new book on the subject by this author: www.crochetconcupiscence.com . There are websites related to the subject as well, one is http://www.crochetsavedmylife.com . On top of the problems above I have several mental disorders as well. On those days where I just can't take it anymore, if I'm able to pick up that hook I know everything will be all right :) I'm hoping to win a copy of this book by writing this post, I know I've been slacking in the post department lately but I have grand plans! Thanks for reading, I hope you can garner a little help with your pain as well.
