Weaving my way around Rheumatoid Arthritis.

RA Birthday List

leave a comment »

Today was a great day. I went to the farmer’s market, and noticed that neither my shoulders nor my feet hurt as much as last week. I also realized one of those cute little rolling grocery carts is in my future. Maybe on my Birthday list.

I Worked in the garden, went for acupuncture, and read a novel. My stiffness was worse in the afternoon, which is normal after gardening. I’m thinking that when I finish this round; I will stop the acupuncture for a while.  It’s been almost a year since I started the weekly Lymph-massage, Physical Therapy and Acupuncture. Seeing someone for treatments 3 times a week has become my life, and now that I’m in pretty good shape, I’m thinking about backing off a bit.

Joint Report

My left hand is still better than my right, less stiff, less edema, less “lava flowing under the skin”.  I bought a pound of clay – to start the hand exercises the PT gave me. It is sitting at the foot of my bed, staring at me. Perhaps tomorrow. RA takes a lot of time.
