Awww you guys, your gonna make me cry here. Thank you so much for your kind words. My knee is doing okay, I am now having to live with things a little different, but I am surviving. If anything it has taught me to fight a little harder about my joint pain issues. Actually have an appt with the Rheumy this Weds. and will request more MRI's to search out the causes of my joint pain as my tummy is pretty much in remission. I do hope that I help out here. I know I do get a little fierce when I see a wrong, but I don't want one innocent person to be deceived.
I need you guys just as much. You all are the only ones who even have a clue with what we live with. This is such an ugly and embarrassing disease to live with, so if I can share what I have learned with someone else, it gives purpose to me of why I have was given this crutch to carry. If anything, we all have to admit it has made us stronger people.
Please keep me in your prayers today, as I have some work issues going on and will be meeting with my top boss today to discuss these problems. I usually don't speak up much, but a wrong was done that I feel I can't let pass. So all good thoughts and prayers that are sent my way today will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again for your support!
Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength
