Hi! My name is Kris and I am the Gal With Gloves.
I am the survivor with a tick tock tick heart full of stories to tell.
I am a fighter whose spirit won’t be crippled by my disease.
Find me on social media as GalWithGloves on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
I frequently wear gloves (fingertipless, Isotoner, etc) to help manage my RA and Raynaud’s syndrome issues. I have shared my life with Rheumatoid Arthritis (also now known as Rheumatoid Auto-immune Disease) since age 15 in 1994.
I’ve also survived two open heart surgeries; one involving Mitral valve replacement with a ticking mechanical valve.
I write mostly non-fiction and daily life on here.
My favorite curse words are Bitch (since I am one) and Bullshit (since people are full of it, especially on NextDoor).
My favorite quote is “In illusion, comfort lies” by Andrew Eldritch…it gets inside and rolls around the head nicely. It’s important to sit with discomfort and question why…
One thought on “About”
I have just started documenting my own journey with RA on my newly started blog fightingtheflares.com. I still fight the linings of the disease even after having it for 15 years, so I’m constantly searching for others living with the disease. I love your fiesty and upbeat perspective, and look forward to burying my head in your blog during my next “couch day.”
