Arthritis Ashley : Living a Positive Life While Chronically Ill : Hello! I'm Ashley Boynes-Shuck, known to many as Arthritis Ashley. I have lived with polyarticular juvenile rheumatoid arthritis since age 10. I have since been diagnosed with a number of other conditions, and have thus devoted much of my adult life to advocating healthy and positive living for those who live with arthritis or other chronic, autoimmune, or rheumatic illnesses. I believe that it is possible to live a full, thriving, positive, and inspiring life, despite living with pain or a disability! :)
