Like back in February - that 2 month flare is "The Ex-Wife Flare".
 
Today I am staying home from work.  I feel a flare-up coming on and I know exactly who to name it after.  It shall be called "The Mother-In-Law Flare".  (GRRR)

That is a good idea - I think I will name mine like hurricanes.  I have had 3 major flare ups since I was diagnosed so that would mean the next one would start with a D. :)

Ha ha! tongue

I think hurricane style would be mine.  otherwise, the names would be too repetitive (Mom, father in law, money).

:)...


Think I'll call mine right now the 'OH BOY! I can't wait to see the doctor!' flare... :)
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.
