RA and Missing Days

Lene Andersen recently wrote Your Life with Rheumatoid Arthritis .  In this very helpful book, she discusses many of the very real issues RAers have and she has a good supply of solutions. She has had RA since 4 years old and is a wheel chair bound busy 44 year old. So she is speaking from practical experience.

I had a missing day Monday. Zero energy. I could do nothing and I am a busy girl.  I could still read and I did. I read James Patterson’s book,  The Twelfth of Never, cover to cover. Lene would say we should look at a day like mine and see the opportunity. I had the rare opportunity to sit and read a book leisurely. I took it. I didn’t feel bad that I didn’t go to a tai chi class on my schedule. I did what I could do. It worked. Going with the flow sometimes is the only way to go.

Woman, friend, mother, RN, photographer, gardener, writer, researcher, observer, swimmer. Pretty much the same as everyone else with my own little twist to things. RA, and three cancers and counting. Life is good despite the obstacles. It's worth the ride just to see the infinite variations of the human spirit.
