Ms. Chronic Disease of America WINNER

Before announcing the winner, I want to thank all of the contestants in this pageant. Hundreds of ladies--and a few men--aspired to Ms. Chronic Disease of America but only one can wear the coveted crown and claim this coveted honor all for herself.

Almost 2000 votes were cast! Yowzers! Thanks for your support and sense of humor!

With 32% of your votes, the winner of the first annual MS. CHRONIC DISEASE OF AMERICA PAGEANT is.....


MS. PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS!!!!
(AKA
ERIN)


Congratulations!

In the event that Ms. Psoriatic Arthritis should experience a sudden and miraculous healing or be otherwise unable to perform her duties as Ms. Chronic Disease of America, one of the runner-ups will take over the title.

Erin is taking autograph requests HERE.


Signed head shots are free.


Photos with dead animals are extra.

Thanks everyone for participating..... and especially for being good sports. Sometimes laughter isn't the best medicine. Most of the time though, it is.

ohmygoshohmygoshohmygoshohmygosh I'm crying I'm laughing this is the proudest moment of my life . . . I totally never thought I'd won. Seriously. This is just so-- humbling-- and touching-- and you know, I just want to thank my Mom, and my Dad who gave me the disease in the first place, and my rheumatologist, and my family doctor who first discovered the rt factor in my blood, and my swollen joints, and-- and-- and-- [faints]

Yes, laughter is a most excellent medicine and it's got a great price!
My heart disease pals and I were giggling over the batter-dipped deep fried butter that was a hot contender at the Texas State Fair....
