What are you battling:
How did you RAlly:
I went Zip Lining with my dear husband and kiddos and had a blast!
What should we know about your experience:
It did not take any hand strength (not required, unless you felt the need to hang on for dear life :) This might be avoided if you have chronic hip pain because of the harnesses. I only have hip pain when I'm on my feet for a long time and had no trouble at all. I would ask the venue how much walking is required to get to the zip line. Where we went was very little! YAY! RAllyOn!
It wasn't until RA started wreaking havoc on my body that I began to appreciate what a person with chronic pain lives with. Whether you have some sort of chronic physical pain or emotional pain, you are in a long term, and for some of us, life long battle. My dear husband has been a huge support and has always been the catalyst for getting us out on great adventures. The first adventure he took us on after my diagnosis left me a little worried I wouldn't be able to do it, keep up, or whatever doom and gloom I could think of. I can see how easy it would be to stay at home the rest of my life! He took us zip lining... and I LOVED it!
This was my first win! I had conquered a fear and beat RA! SCORE Me: 1 RA: 0. This is where the idea for this blog was born. I went on our adventure, despite the pain, and left with some great memories. I wanted to celebrate this win, but didn't know how. I decided I needed a place to share my RAllies. I needed a place that I could be proud of, that I could make my own. And let's face it, not everyone in my life wants to follow these wins, so it needed to be something they could choose to do. I decided RAllyOn would be the perfect outlet for my wins and accomplishments... then it hit me, maybe other people, like me, want this too.
My goal and hope for this blog is that it inspires people to face their battle head on, rally against their pains and fears, and celebrate their wins with all of us. I have a place where you can submit your wins to me so I can help you share with this group. So RAllyOn my friends!
