CreakyJoints is delighted to announce that Barbara, a retired French teacher from Illinois with rheumatoid arthritis, has won the October CreakyJoints ‘Clean My House’ Monthly Member Drawing!
Misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia until she was appropriately diagnosed with RA in 1996, Barbara has been a CreakyJoints member since 2007. She first learned about CreakyJoints from a work colleague and it has been a helpful information source ever since:
“CreakyJoints provides useful information. I’ve often discussed something I’ve seen on CreakyJoints with my rheumatologist. The shingles vaccine for example—that is something I saw on CreakyJoints but my first doc said no. When I got another doc, it was yes, and I have it <vaccine> now. The more information any of us can get, the better, so CreakyJoints keep on doing what you are doing.”
‘Clean My House’ is our new benefit where CreakyJoints members are automatically entered into a drawing to have a cleaning service come to their home for five hours to scrub, scour, vacuum – their call. Barbara has decided to start with her windows:
“It’s good to have a clean space to live in but I can’t do it all myself. I have someone come in once a month but it’s not enough. I can’t wash my windows. I would love to have my windows cleaned. Thank you CreakyJoints for this unexpected pleasure of being able to have a really thorough cleaning that’s long overdue.”
The new ‘Clean My House’ membership benefit was created in response to many CreakyJoints members voicing a sentiment similar to Barbara’s about their inability to take care of their homes satisfactorily due to pain and mobility issues.
All registered CreakyJoints members are automatically entered in the ‘Clean My House’ drawing. Become a CreakyJoints member and you could be the November winner!
