I was supposed to go to Prague but always something comes up. This time it was RA. My husband rightly decided that Prague would be too cold for my joints and took me to Seville instead. Bless him , what a good choice! Seville is beautiful , lively and very , very warm. On my second day there all my pains disappeared and I was able to walk in the heat for four hours each day. Wow !! I did not want to come back to cold and rainy England and I was right as as soon as I was back I took a chill at the airport waiting for my taxi. From 37 degrees to 18, I felt brrrrr but at least is was sunny for a change! Our sun is so feeble it does not warm us up. Well I have done my store of D vitamin and calcium now and I thought that the pains would stay away at least for a while. Sadly not ! They are back throbbing in my legs that feel like lead , low back and wrists in pain and so tired that I cannot function properly. I have done the x rays and the blood tests and this Saturday I have an appointment with GP to discuss the results. I will finally know what is it that ails me and I feel really anxious about it. You see once it has been properly diagnosed I will not be able to be in self denial any more and it will take away my hope. My hope that I don't have RA after all but something else that can be cured. I will let you know how it goes after Saturday. Meanwhile I will try to live my life as best as I can and soldier on.
The photo is one of mine. The sharp glass symbolises the pain and the view of the moon and the star are the hope.
