So, the intense flare is over, but I'm having lingering pain in my left shoulder and left knee. And the hip is still stiff, but not as bad as before. Just preventing me from easily putting on my right sock in the morning. Am I really going to have to ask my husband to put on my sock for me? I'm not saying this is a bad thing (cause we all know we need help from time to time. Or everyday.), it's just that it's one more thing I need help with. I'm also sleeping much better (as in a couple of hours in a row, yay!) and waking up less stiff. All in all, not too shabby :) I'm hoping that the slightly less busy, less frequent travelling in my future will help out with this.
Thanks for everyone's good thoughts and kind words. They are invaluable to me. The reason I started this blog was to get and give support, and I am getting it in droves. Whether that is by you stopping in to comment on one of my posts, or by me reading all of yours. Thank each and every one of you RA-battling heroes! You totally rock!
