Lynnwood, glad to hear you are feeling good. We need to know that too. I guess so many times I just come on here to rant and rave, but it is good to see others actually feeling well for a change (and me too when it is my turn). Yes, this time of year is tough for me with the flares, winter does seem to have it's problems too with the joints. No matter what there are ups and downs in life, whether I feel good or not. I guess with end of August the heat and humidity have an extra bang to it that causes some of our systems to go haywire or the change of season has an effect on us. Whatever the reason, I am glad we are all here through the good days and the bad. Take care everyone - Kristin
