Just Checking In

This week I haven't blogged because I was so very busy feeling sorry for myself (see prior blog posts).  All better now.  Self-pity has its place, but quickly becomes boring for me.  And the imminent 10th anniversary of 9/11 helps to put my little problems into perspective.

Hopefully I'll soon hear about starting my antibiotic therapy for preventive TB treatment (see prior blog posts).  I'm ready to get that over with, but it has to be run through the state health department, and as we all know the wheels of bureaucracy grind slowly...

So, I have a big day tomorrow.  Rheum appointment so she can assess how I'm doing off meds,  then an MRI of my hands and wrists because they are looking & feeling a bit wacky to my doc. 
I may even have lunch out if I still feel like it after lying in a ginormous banging magnetic tube for 1 1/2 hours.

Ah, the retired life ... who needs hobbies when you have rheumatoid arthritis?  

Hope you're all well.  I'd love to hear your favorite MRI story!

I just found your blog thanks to Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy. Love your post. I too have this dreaded disease for 5+ years now. 1-1/2 years more if you count the your not really sick, it's all in your head, trying to get diagnosed,part. It has brought a lot of changes and challenges to my life, but with my faith, family and connections with others who like me have RA I muddle through.

Hi Cammie nice to "meet" you. Love RAGuy! Muddling is what we do, but we muddle fabulously, don't we?
