What a difference a day makes...

Yep, that's me. 

Thank you for all your sweet comments on last nights entry. 

The snow came to be nothing.  Big bummer, but it did look pretty while it lasted.

I didn't sleep good last night. 

My hands and wrists hurt like hell.  My elbows worse.

Hammer went to hug me and grabbed my right elbow by mistake and made me squeal and jump in pain. 

Rheumatoid Arthritis sucks.  It can even make hugs hurt. 

So, I am cranky today.  My infusion of my IV Orencia is on Thursday.  That feels like a forever away. 

I am going to go and take a 1/2 of a vicodin right now.  It won't help my mood, but it will take the edge off the aches and pains.  I was in pain yesterday too, but just not as bad.  Today, it really has hit me like a ton of bricks.  I don't know why...

Sorry for my mood...

be well,
Dawn

You're holding onto everyday life just fine, I'd say Dawn.  Able to be honest with your pains, still keep a sense of humor, conscious of others' woes - sounds like you're ahead.  I wish you the very least of pain and the utmost joy life offers.  xoxo

Sorry to hear your're having a bad time.

I used to work for a lady with RA, hers started when she was 40 and I worked with her when she was 50, so I am very aware of the suffering. She had it so bad she had various joints replaced and pins in her hands, yet she would never miss work unless she was having surgery. I pray that they find a cure for this awful disease soon.

Be well.

Hi Dawn!!  Hope you feel better!  My father in law has rheumatoid arthritis and I know it ails him continually.  I will say prayers and hope you have a wonderful day!!!!!  I love the snow too and wish we could all be snowed in for a few days so I can finish getting unpacked fast and have hubby at home to help with the putting beds together and things like that.  Hugs,
Lisa
