Biologics, please!

My elbow will not bend straight! I'm headed to sleep when I realize
that because I've taken pain meds (Mobic), I couldn't feel that it's
been hurting...until it started to wear off. Things like that along
with all the side effects of Prednisone send me off on this worry
trail that I haven't started DMARDS or best (from my research)
Biologics!!! Since I start a new Rheumatologist this month, I look
forward to dropping the double-chin look and maybe a few bouts of I
can't feel my elbow along the way...

Some more news about biologics & new research below...

Also, been excited about new research from Mayo Clinic (Phoenix) Shout
out to Mom for help with getting me diagnosed & taking care of me in
the harder times

So...I emailed this article to my family and we got to thinking that
the oddity of randomness could indeed be a glimpse of the mysteries
spoken of in the Word...God has that right but increased learning has
its' discoveries...just some thinking prob exacerbated by coffee

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Today was a good day...but not for THE RA. Hated walking, called all
the doctors, wanted to do so many things that just hurt too much. I
told someone last night "I'm sorry can you open this for me" and
explained in a sentence or two what I'm up against (not claiming it 4
life) and they said "oh you hide it well"....
Now they said that because it came out again..."we aren't really
telling people." See I'm struggling with what to do.... My iPhone
doesn't even recognize the acronym RA! I was 26 when they said it's a
rare, early onset of RA...I feel like it makes me "old" and being aged or wise is ok by me...but "old" is
different.... I do know that all things work together for the
good...but today I wondered how rough some days in the future might be
and how it might affect "this or that."
To get perspective I sat down to read "A Long Way Gone" and finished it out with The Bible; between, Job &
Ishmael Beah...RA didn't define my day!
