It is time for me to educate myself about Systemic Juvenile Idopathic Arthritis...What do I know, what can I handle, how much I don't know or where to look.

A quote from a pharmaceutical sponsored website:
Children get JIA, but families live with it

JIA is not just a child's disease. For every kid with JIA, there's a family living right alongside—helping that child manage the pain and stiffness. Being the parent of a child with JIA can be an overwhelming responsibility. You have to make decisions that affect your child's life. A better understanding of JIA and its symptoms will help bring you up-to-date on your child's treatment options.

Right now - all I would like to do is be sad, I'm not ready to mobilize yet. I see/read of all these families the mobilize around their sick child and pull it together and do the extraordinary...BUT I HAVE FOUR CHILDREN! It isn't fair...but as Scar said..."life's not fair"
