Everyone must have their ritual in the morning, but I've found it takes more careful planning since my RA. I don't know about other folk, as I don't know anyone else personally who has RA (I have to keep reminding myself that it's not that common, and I only hear from everyone here & people I see when I go to clinic). Apart from the obligatory caffeine, and feeding my 3 little princes (my cats!), I do find it really hard to start going. I do a few stretching exercises in bed before I get up. I'm a really early riser: I don't know if others have this, but it's nigh on impossible to have a sleep if there's some pain. I then do some knitting. My knitting is my movement & starter for the day: It starts to unstiffen my fingers & then they work brilliantly for the rest of the day! How to you start yours?
