I AM FEELING SO MUCH BETTER!!
After an entire month of horrible flares, all of a sudden they stopped. Almost overnight even.
I am feeling better than I have in 2 years!
I had a dr. appt this week and I don't go back for ....not 8 weeks. Not 12 weeks. But FOUR months!! I've never gotten to go that long before. He gave me a shot in my finger and I'm still trying to decide if it's going to help enough. It's a little better, but not what I hoped for. Still there's time, so we'll see.
I can snap with both hands, raise both arms over my head at the same time, and sleep in any position I want. My left hand almost feels normal and my right one is pretty good. I can make one tight fist and one decent fist.
Why the good news? What changed? The only thing that I've added is acupuncture. But I don't attribute it to that. I count it all to the glory of God. Every single joint. Every movement. Every good night's sleep.
Thank You God!

This has been a rough spell to say the least. December has not been my favorite.
I'm not sleeping great and have been up a couple of nights heating up my rice bag for my shoulder. LOVE rice bags!
I taught CT to work on my wrist. Well, I taught him as far as I know how just guessing how Maggie really does it. It worked last week and kept me out of a brace. Getting dressed is hard.
But...and I hate this....I was hurting bad enough to take the full dose of Arava for most of this week. We'll see how this affects my hair. And I can't say that it has helped a ton, but then again idk how much worse it would be w/o it, right?
I'm thankful that I'm still at a point of being able to push through it. I have good energy during the day and I'm still doing whatever I want. For the most part, I think only the ppl I'm closest to can tell....I hope anyway!
