Last night I felt like a "normal" 27 year old!  I went out with some girlfriends, ate out, and went dancing.  I haven't been able to dance since September due to horrible aches and pains and a bad flare in November.  My knees and legs hurt a little, but it was FUN!  I just wanted to share that, it felt so good to get out and to feel my age for once!

That's great! I remember the first time I felt like a person rather than a sick person, so I can relate to that.

The fun and good feelings can only make you feel better. Hope this is the first of many good days for you.

Yay! That's an awesome feeling when you can feel like a "normal"! :) You know, unless I was feeling absolutely horrible, I always went out with friends for dancing anyway. It gave me a sense of accomplisment and joy - even if it was just for the night. But good for you!
