Coping with RA

Wed May 17, 2017 3:27 am by piilaadziitis

I turned off the dryer and reached in, burying my hands in the deep-heated load of towels that had just finished the dry cycle. Oh, that felt so good! For a long moment, I just left them there, wiggling my fingers and letting the heat sink into my achy hands.

What didn’t feel so good was gathering the towels into a big wad, pulling them from the dryer and carrying them over to the bed. And …

Wed May 10, 2017 7:46 am by piilaadziitis

But there are plenty of dumb things people have said:

Have you ever tried this [random cure]? I know they mean well but strange supplements …

You need to be honest and talk. Never lie to yourself about arthritis.

RA - more than just joint pain

Wed May 17, 2017 3:26 am by piilaadziitis

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is defined as an auto-immune condition where the immune system attacks the body’s healthy tissue. Thus, RA symptoms go well beyond painful and stiff joints.

RA - So what?

Sun May 07, 2017 8:18 pm by piilaadziitis

There is something so cleansing to the soul about reflection on purpose.  It also gives one the opportunity to make adjustments and improvements.  To take on new challenges. To try new adventures.

It is far too easy for those of us who must contend with the, at times overwhelming, burden of RA, to become complacent in making changes that very well could benefit us.  Not only in our management …

    Arthritis - uninvited guest who will not leave
    Since first day had need to talk with someone, who has the same experience. Couldn't find what i was looking for. Here i try to make it work. For our partners too, which see us, feel us every day. We talk, explain them our moods, etc. But it is hard - they don't have it. It is for them too to share together, to better understand us.
