Good luck to us all!
And may we swiftly find our own unique ways forward through these dark woods called autoimmune diseases into the sunlight of remission or at least low disease activity.
For some special diets and eliminating certain foods seems to work, for some this isn't an option because pre-disease they were on a 'clean' diet already or it just plain doesn't work for them. For some specific exercise regimes are a great help - yoga, tai chi (for me at present light rebounding work in 5-10 minute bursts 2-3 times a day is helpjing me - and now a group of you have just screamed & burst into tears at the mere thought of such foolishness! And rightly so cos rebounding would probably have you in searious global pain), others just keep on moving in simple daily ways - a stretch here, a roll of the wrist there - kneeding play dough with a little lavender oil in it helps my hands when I'm not in rebound health! Methotrexate is my one and only DMARD and to me it's the best thing since sliced bread - and others are throwing up, hitting dangerously low blood counts, high liver toxins etc on it and to them the cursed med is the devil reincarnated!
What I am trying to say is "be aware of the fact that what works for you may not work for me and visa Vera's. Please share, ask, respond so I can learn and grow from others successes but don't try and sell you particular success as a cure all to me or use it to imply that I don't take my personal health responsibilities seriously - the latter is offensive to me particularly as I live with depression, blepharospasm and RA whilst continuing to work full time - my health is my 'second job' and I am a very conscientious worker!
All the best
