about a month ago I saw my doctor for a followup visit. I had just gone through another round of specialized tests for my autoimmune arthritis which had been painfully escalating in intensity over the Winter. The results were inconclusive. No clear patterns. No answers. No magic bullet treatments. No diagnosis. The only proof I had was the unrelenting pain that pervaded my body's tired and achy joints and muscles and of course, the endless, draining fatigue.

This is my story about finding healing in the things that surround you. I hope it inspires you and brings you a sense of peace.

…nice article Peter! Many of us here suffering from CP are in the same boat of sorts…looking for that magic pill,..diagnosis and so forth. While we may not live in an area as beautiful as yours,…I myself have found hope and beauty in many relationships right here on the HW forums. Beauty comes in many forms as does hope. Again great Article!…and glad you found some sort of peace on that day.

Thank you for commenting on the blog. I wish I had more time to spend in the CP forum, as I do have a lot of the same issues.... but alas HW takes any time I have left just to keep it running. I appreciate you taking the time to read the blog. It means a lot!
