Just Around The Pointe was created by Traci Lynn Martin, who has a medical diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
"Before my diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis, I was very active and was involved in several different activities.
In 2009 I began developing symptoms of severe joint pain in my feet and ankles and constant fatigue.
By 2010, I was finally diagnosed and was started on medication to prevent any worsening joint damage.
Working as a nurse, I saw many individuals with chronic health conditions and disabilities who had given up. Their lives revolved around going from their bed to their chair, and back to their bed.
My goal is to show individuals, who are living with any kind of chronic health condition and disibility, that their is so much more to life than sitting in your chair and watching t.v.
