RA morning

Morning was an endurance contest for the first few months of my rheumatoid arthritis.   Pain and total lack of energy kept me down. I would wake up. I made coffee. Coffee pot was very hard to lift. I fed Emma. I fed Jimmy. I took my coffee to my comfortable settee in my bedroom. I sat, didn’t move.  I wrote in my journal. I do think I could have spent the entire morning in that one spot. In fact I did spend several hours on it each morning for months.  It took the time for the pain to diminish and the energy to perk up.  Today I still have pain in the morning.  It is a reminder of RA.  Today it is fine. It may not be fine tomorrow. RA changes quickly and is full of surprises. I am happy for today. I am off the settee and in my office writing. It is a good sign of improvement for my RA.

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.
