Hi All - I just wanted to say that I am so excited. I am finally getting to the point of really being "me" again. I have a GP appointment on the 10th of April, and I am really hopeful that she will agree that I am in remission, at least for RA. I will start working on the Sjogrens specifically then.
Here is one of the main reasons I am convinced that I am in remission. I spent Sunday for about two hours helping my sweet hubby set up the wood rails, and load the first layer. Then I spent another four hours over two days actually trucking the wood in a wheelbarrow from the other side of the large yard to the rails and stacking it. My DH came home early and helped me stack it for a couple of hours, and we finished it.
So the amazing parts of this story are: First, I was able to do this lifting from the piles / ground into the cart, move the wheelbarrow - fully loaded, lifting from the cart onto the wood pile; Second: I didn't die of pain in the nights; third, even after three days, I am just barely sore today. I just really wanted to tell people that would understand why I am so excited.
I hope you all are having a wonderful, pain free day!
