I'm glad you're alive to say this Barbara Seranella

I've always loved the Munch Mancini novels.
I think I'd like the author too.

Here's why

I'd heard she was in dire straits but nothing more. This essay is indeed good news. She sounds like she has her spirit back. Go, Barbara!

This was such a great post. And a great big wake up call clue gun alarm clock for life.
Thanks Miss Snark.
And thanks also for your kind, kind congrats on my deal!!!

...and to think I've been whining the past four months to anyone who'll listen over a relatively minor injury...

Incidently, for folks who don't like to give out their email all over the place but who might want to read the article, there's services like BugMeNot that maintains a list of logins for sites such as this.

Sometimes it takes one or two tries to get through, but that's a minor tradeoff in my book. For the LA Times, the first one on the Bugmenot list didn't work for me, but the second did. YMMV.

What a fabulous article. It makes me want to read her books. As someone who has been dealing with rheumatoid arthritis for the last 8 years, I can relate. There have been moments I wanted to die rather than be in so much agony, but strangely enough, I wouldn't change anything. There's something about it that has not only made me a stronger person, but has made me appreciate the simple things in life, especially the human angels who have supported me with unconditional love along the way.

P.S. I have been lurking here for months and love this blog community. This is my first post. Hola!
