OOH OOH ME TOO, ME TOO! okay, was pretty darn sick last week (pneumonia) but no biggie...it's a lot easier to deal with than RA.
and....ARE YA READY?????
yesterday i walked 2.49 miles, i have proof too, it's on my honey's GPS thingy!
so in short, this is coming from gal who for the past year couldn't get to the mailbox without extreme pain.
so what today the knees are balloons and can't walk too good...i did a BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT!
now, when there are days where the RA is so bad i cannot shower, cook or do for myself...i'll remember that little remissions can come & great things can happen.
it's a great boost in ego i tell ya that!
with RA, time in pain is evil...and really is the enemy. it's the NOT LOSING HOPE & CONFIDENCE IN YOURSELF that will get a person through a lot of this.
Craig, your the best. P.S. my man ran his 1/2 marathon last week and placed 7th in his age group! (45-54 y/o)! the NJ MARATHON and half marathon was VERY INSPIRATIONAL!
