i'm not feeling well...so i may be taking a break for a bit. there are so many new interesting posts, but i'm exhausted.
not sure if it's a combo of RA and CD flare or what. but i slept ALL day...every time i went to lay down. this is unusual. lots of knee pain and threw up this morning after a nite of "D". maybe it's crohns related, the vommiting. i'm not one to heave.
stress is catching up with me too.
thanks all for being so very supportive.
it's been a tough week.
looking forward to the "Apprentice" tonite. i like the Trump!
had a little walk today! knees were a bit better than yesterday. walked down to get my papers for a procedure on friday...and picked up a free DVD @ Blockbuster!
am pooped now...at least some stuff was accomplished.

wrapped my honey's B-day gifts today! weeeee, can't wait for him to open em'!

Hey Erin -
Workouts are going good, did Pilates yesterday as well as went to the gym and rode the stationary bike for 35 minutes... Baby steps... I figure whatever I do is more than what I used to do right? I went and saw an Exercise Physiologist and she gave me an exercise prescription, so I've been trying to follow that. I have to do a cardio workout 4-5 times a week for at least 30 -45 minutes... Then I have to do stretching/strength exercises throughout the week also, that's why I am doing the Pilates. Knees aren't happy with me, but they'll get over it! I refuse to let this get me down anymore. I'm gonna work through it, I've set my mind and that's all there is to it. After this weekend, my feet and my knees were hurting badly, so I took Monday off exercise wise and picked back up on it Tuesday. I don't want to have too many down days 'cause then I will get right back to where I was in the first place...
Anyways - what time is your dr's appointment? I hope you get some relief soon. I am very excited about you getting the help you need... FINALLY!
The Enbrel seems to be working well for me... At least so far so good...
Well, I'm off to work... Will post more later - Have a good day and get some rest - Duck
tushy is sore! shot to both cheeks and they're weren't smilin' either! naw...they're OK, just hurts to sit.
the steroids should help ease up this flare.
doc filled out the disability forms from SSI for me too real quick. so things feel like they're getting accomplished.
get a day off tomorrow from all docs & papers...hooray.
hoping everyone is doing OK.
