Carin is the most amazing example of Optimism. Six years ago while she was pregnant with her son she started getting joint symptoms she could not explain. After a year of medical testing she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Psoriatic Arthritis, an autoimmune disorder. She was 29 yrs old.
For the past 6 years she has worked hard to remain positive, do what her body allows, and is the most attentive amazing mother ever. Even on very bad pain days when she can not leave her bed she does fun things with her son in bed with her. He is never ignored and is always her focus. She was forced to quit working a job she loved and stop playing in the band she was in. Yet, she continues to have a very positive outlook despite her struggles.
I have never inn my 40 years of life encountered someone that just carries a light in her and shines it upon everyone around her. She is truly the most amazing example of how to be and live.
