I am so glad to make others smile, sometimes a happy feeling is all it takes to make a good day better. Hubby goes back to work Monday morning. Our car needs repairs but we worked out a deal with our mechanic where hubby builds him a computer and we get 300 in car repair. Fairly reasonable deal. So wonderful to have a spouse who can do things like work on computers and friends who repair cars and need computer work. But enough on that, the stress didn't get bad enough to cause a flare for which I am grateful. Yet my fatigue levels are still out of this world. I see the rheumy the 15th to work on that because his partner was concerned and so was my rheumy but he is out of the office for a few weeks to deal with family problems. I couldn't take an earlier appointment because hubby needs 2 weeks notice for work to get the time off since I still can't drive.
