What a nice thought for the day, painter. I'm tired, but surprisingly not doing too bad. I was up late last night because my daughter had a dance recital so I didn't get to bed until about 11:30 (that's unheard of for me). I'm in a little better frame of mind today. I just get frustrated sometimes because my rheumatologist doesn't want to try to do anything more for me, so I feel like I am just going to have to deal with feeling rotten for the rest of my life. For now I've decided that I will take the "good" days with thanks and just deal with the bad days. Unfortunately the bad days far outnumber the good.
How are you holding up with your appointments coming up? I am praying for you and hoping that they don't have to do surgery, but if they do, I hope it can help releive your symptoms. Take care of yourself.
