    Husband and I have two cars with traditional keys, one with pushbutton start. I think it might be easier if all our cars had the same system. Husband likes the pushbutton start, but I'm not super...

    I have RA and have been on Humira (and methotrexate) since around April 2003. It made a huge difference in my life when I started on it, and I've mostly done very well in the years I've been on it. ...

    I spent half my growing up years (until age 10) in northern New Jersey in a rural area that was slowly going suburban, with lots of woods around. I had a tent out in the woods that was a fort,...

    I have always been very obsessive about my cars, and I am finally letting go of it. I ordered my 2002 Altima 3.5 from the factory in Japan, and told the dealer if they put a dealer badge on it or...

    I gave up riding 15 years ago, and still miss it. I am now at the point with my aging pony that we are lucky to get out driving once a week. And the worst of it is that my husband feels he is just...

    Teddy, I have found that RA is not necessarily a constant downhill slide. My hands are way better now than they were a few years ago, but my feet are way worse (neuropathy, that gift that keeps...

    Teddy, at least I got to be mostly able-bodied until I was 39. Seems to me you are a young adult--is that correct? I can't imagine being at your time of life and having to deal with this crap.

    I'm on the permanent DL, and I'm pretty tired of it. I stay active in spite of my disabilities, but does it always have to be so hard?

    Thanks for letting me have a brief pity party. Moving on to...

    I had a trigger finger on my left pinky and right thumb. The pinky was pretty bad, but a steroid injection fixed it (injection was about 16 years ago and it is still ok). For the thumb, which...

    I've lived at my place for twelve years now, and I still will occasionally get the "oh my gosh, your pony is dead" calls from well-meaning people. These are all people who know us well and know that...

    The horses were bay, and the vehicle was a farm wagon. I have mobility issues, so one of my concerns was getting myself into the vehicle, but this was easy. There were steps going up the back. I...

    I married my first husband in 1977, and changed my name then. I was still in college, so my degree has his last name. I chose to do this because I didn't much like my maiden name, but really liked...

    My husband knew I have always wanted to try driving a pair, but my two driving ponies were quite different sizes. I could have tried a tandem, but these two ponies hated each other, so I never went...

    I keep my hanging clothes on hangers that go nicely with the item, all organized by color. Husband and daughter always threaten to rearrange my clothes on the hangers.

    I love my Focus. I have 19,000 miles on it and am very happy. But I would never, never, never buy that car with an automatic transmission. Mine is a manual.
