My name is Beth. Living with vasculitis is celebrating being able to do what I love to do. On this May morning, I celebrate hiking with my husband and my dogs in a Colorado wilderness area with vistas of blue skies, mountains and melting snow, engulfed in the healing scent of pine trees in spring. In times when my vasculitis makes such a hike impossible, the memory of this morning and the knowledge that there will be other such mornings will keep my spirits high.
