SO....here are some helpful ideas for living with arthritis as an 8th grader, so far.
1. Savannah's locker: All lockers at Savannah's junior high school have a lock built into the locker....all lockers but ONE...Savannah's locker. This is because the school physically removed Savannah's lock on her locker because her hands are not able to maneuver the opening of the lock due to the arthritis in her fingers and hands. We are thankful to the school for doing this...sometimes you just have to ask.
