Too many people think of arthritis as a minor annoyance, stiff joints and nagging aches and pains, an inevitable part of growing older. But anyone who suffers from arthritis knows that it is more than minor, its pain can be intense and debilitating, and it can severely limit one's capabilities and change one's life. It also is not exclusive to the elderly: athletes, accident victims, and even children can be afflicted with this chronic, incurable disease. It is the primary cause for work disability and among the most pervasive disorders in the world. Amye Leong was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis when she was eighteen years old. Chronic, debilitating, and incurable, the disease has inflicted pain and humiliation on her, and she has undergone sixteen arthritis-related surgeries, including twelve joint replacements. But Amye has not only coped successfully with the disease, she has found dignity and empowerment in a life perpetually affected by illness. While GET A GRIP is Amye's personal story, what she has experienced is common to all arthritis sufferers to some degree. Readers will gain hope and inspiration from her example and learn how to overcome this disease at home and in the workplace. Written by someone who has suffered with the disease for more than thirty years, and enthusiastically supported by national arthritis organisations, GET A GRIP is an emotional and inspirational story, as well as a handbook for coping with arthritis on a day to day basis.
