Weaving my way around Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Paying Homage to the Ice Goddess

Joint Protection

The new purse worked great at the farmer’s market. It’s so lightweight; I can barely tell I’m using it. There’s a sweet little zipper pocket on the outside for my list and cash. And it matches my new five-finger’s shoes. I think I’m in love!

Joint Report

I’m at base line today, which is about 90% better than when first diagnosed in June 2010. Particular sore joints today are both pinkies, right index finger, both DeQuervain’s tendons, balls of both feet & little toes, ankles and, of course, my back, where it all began.

Spent some time in my garden, on my knees, planting squash and now, over an hour later, I see the consequences. My knees are red, feel achy and hot. This is new. Sigh. I’m sitting here with an ice pack on my knees, and visions of one of those soft garden kneepads in my near future. I’m eating a sweet round scoop of Coconut Bliss Chocolate ice cream in a pretty pressed glass sundae dish – a little chocolate therapy to distract me from the necessary knee therapy.
