Every Sunday I load up on this one drug that makes me want to hurl. It’s the catch. If I want to walk without limping or well walk in general I have to take these pills that make me vomit. I don’t always vomit, sometime, like tonight I’m just nauseous I just wish I’d vomit and get it over with already.
Having RA is like being insane 1/2 the time. Most people don’t understand. I’ve had people say…”but you don’t look sick”. I am sick…I’m sick of people saying you don’t look sick. A couple of weeks ago my brother came to stay with me during a flare moment. He had never seen me incapacitated and well I think it freaked him out a bit.
The upside of the RA is it isn’t a disease that will kill me so I’m okay with just dealing. That whole being dead thing would just screw up my day. And besides I just dyed my hair and that would be a major waste.
