Really, RA? You're really moving into my hips??? The one part of me that I would brag about to folks, "but at least I have good strong hips!"??? I mean, I know I had that one night flare ten years ago in my right hip, but nothing since then. Why are you all up in my grill (whatever that means)???? And, now that we're talking, why have you moved into my left shoulder? You've dominated my right shoulder for over a year now, rendering it incapable of being raised above my head. Now you want to do that to my other one? What, you want to ensure that I have dirty hair cause I can't reach up and completely wash my hair? So now I can barely reach my head AND my feet. Thanks a lot, jerk.
Oh crud, I just took a proactive break from ranting to book an appointment with my doctor for some cortisone shots in said nasty joints and he is away for the next few weeks. And, getting cortisone shots makes me really paranoid. I've had doctors struggle giving them to me, banging into the bone, so I don't want to just go to anyone. Poop.
On a positive note (and despite how it may seem, I do try to remain positive) I just got back from my best friend's wedding and it was beautiful! I was in massive flare mode, but I had a great time visiting long time friends, decorating, getting mani/pedis (for the first time ever!) and eating a lot of food. I'll write more on this later, I promise!!
