Hi Everyone, it's been so long since I've written & a lot has gone on in my life. I've injured my back twice-enough to have to see a chiropractor regularly since January. The first time I went sledding with my nieces (2 days before Christmas) & then we walked on the frozen lake & I fell backwards, twisting-to save my head which hit anyway. The 2nd time, I missed the last step in a low lit stairway & pinched a nerve.
I've also just recovered from 2 upper respiratory infections that both spread to my eyes. I had never seen such red & sore & swollen eyes before and I looked like I could have been in a zombie movie & not used any makeup at all. Then, this morning, I woke up & my left eye was totally bloodshot again, ugh. I called & got an appt with a different Dr & I think that I intimidated him because I was totally being proactive & knowledgeable about the situation.
I picked up some more antibiotic eye drops & maybe they'll work this time. I just can't go on having red eyes every 2 weeks anymore.
Last week, since we have already gone over 100 degrees (one day), I thought that it was time to move my ice-scraper out of the car & while doing so, I somehow scratched my leg on it & am sporting a long gouge that bled profusely; fortunately though, it is healing good now.
I've also had some mini-flares this winter, ones that attack just one joint at a time & every day was a different joint.
On the good side, we have had a lot of rain this Spring & everything is so green, it is beautiful. I am still walking regularly with my friend & I'm feeling better all the time. I walked & volunteered in our Lincoln Arthritis Walk on the 11th-it was SO cold we broke a record & then 2 days later we broke a record for being so hot. Weird weather.
I've been keeping up (mostly) with the blogs and I really enjoyed the letter days. Hope all are well.
