I am now at the airport waiting for my flight back to Arizona. I had such a wonderful time here in Philedelphia! I met the wonderful presidents of ASAP and learned so much! Everybody was so nice, so eager to help and answer my questions. I look forward to making contact and building great working relationships! I went to all the poster sessions,this is the way to do it! I was able to get so much information and some amazing contacts whom I will definitely follow up with regarding topics that I address daily in the field.
I went to dinner last evening with a couple of ArizOTA board members and some studetnts from a university in Phoenix. Such a wonderful evening getting to know everybody at the table. This type of interaction is so important to etstablish a sense of unity, increase comfort in communication, promote working friendship, gaining insight and build rapport. I had a great time!
Best thing was I never did fall into a full relapse that would have changed the outcome of this adventure. The travel gods must have been looking over me! Lol!
I am looking forward to the next conference to see everybody again!
I acquired AOSD in 2008. I have suffered so terribly and have found ways to help me regain my life. This my personal journal of this mystery illness to diagnosis. I hope that I can help others with my experience and information.
