I have had the most amazing week- no sickness, proper sleep, so much energy and joint movement so much better than it has been for at least a year. Have felt on top of the world and everybody knew it- new man in my life? Lost weight and now size 8? Nope- none of those although that would be really nice, no, finally a drug that works for me.....by Thursday felt I had been given my life back, was full of plans for the summer, overdid things a little - I think any of us would if we were blessed with a little window in time where we felt as if RA was a distant memory. Yesterday was tired and just not on par, dozed most of the day in the sunshine and wakened this morning to that horrible sickness, stiff swollen joints and needing pain meds as soon as I could.
So upset for a while, cried and raged, niavly thought the RA had gone into remission, that what we all dream of had been offered for a week then taken away again.
Now a few hours later, calmer and more rational, I can step back and say, well it worked for a week, now we have to start working towards being good for two weeks and so next month when I take my biologics, it will work for longer.
Thinking about this forum, and everyone who I have met( virtually) many brave people, patient and strong, are struggling with this disease every day and I thank you for sharing together
Craftygirl suggested a badge, I think we all deserve medals.
So for today, another easy day, just taking things easy and hope the sunshine comes back.
Have a wonderful peaceful Sunday whatever you are all doing
