Thought I'd share this as others may find it useful.... I found and tried a iTunes meditation by Belleruth Naparstek called 'A guide meditation to help with your rheumatoid arthritis or lupus' . I played it on repeat wilst going to sleep and I've slept the best I have slept since about Easter. Has the crappy fatigue gone I hear you cry.... alas no but a definite improvement knowing that I actually slept through about six hours uninterrupted a can/will do so again.
I've also bought my far infrared mat and it's on my bed under a sheet. I put it on low for an hour or two and find it's gentle warmth comforting. I got my mat from a firm called Get Fitt (Mark was very helpful) and, because I couldn't afford the full bed one, I got the foot warmer/body wrap combo and instead of wearing the body wrap I have layed it on my bed. I have found the combination of the gentle warmth and the meditation very nurturing and some how cocooning.
Here's hoping that we don't just survive with RA and all that it brings but get to live with RA being a small part of our diverse life experiences.
With 'warmth and peace'
