I had such a HORRIBLE day yesterday, in the office feeling bloated and raw, have been flaring badly for about
a week and upped my prednisone to 30. Then I was driving on the highway and my car engine just blew up, dead. Made it to the shoulder but in a dangerous spot where traffic merged all over the place. Of course, I had planned to make it to my appointment and use the restroom there...so I subjected myself to 90 minutes of horrible pain and anxiety waiting for help. I'm tough but I was shaken to the core, could not cope or even speak coherently to the Onstar people trying to help me.
(I am SO done with Cadillacs, I used to drive an XLR and this was a new STS and now they both shut down on me in motion. Death Traps , GM can eat S and die).
Anyway...I decided to check my Biorhythms and, lo and behold, my Emotional biorhythm was rock bottom yesterday (advised to just hide), and my Physical biorhythm was rock bottom in the past week. Well, there you go.
Anyone else noticed a correlation? You can check your biorhythms free at several sites online. I know it's probably Hoo-Haw, but it always seems to line up...

August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed wheat/gluten, other intolerances; eliminated all wheat/gluten from my diet. Probiotics (Ultimate Flora, 50 billion), trying Curamin.
Flaring, seasonal? or supplements too harsh? Back on prednisone, tried to taper but now back up to 20-30 after several really bad days. Waiting for insurance decison on Humira...soon...
