This weekend brought it’s challenges. RA ruled the day and I was sad about that. I also found that articulating myself isn’t my strong suit.
I don’t like to burden those around me with my RA because nothing can be done once a flare is in full progress and I do not like to burden anyone with my RA crap. I find it tedious that I have to go through it. My poor wife was lucky to have a front row seat to my RA induced melt down. She’s a trooper though and weathered the storm with me.
Its been a stressful couple of weeks and the weather in my part of town has been snowy and filled with lots of barometric pressure. Add all of this together and it equals a weekend of swelled joints, excruciating pain and debilitating sadness. I think I’m suffering in silence but the atmosphere I created was louder than the drumline at half time.
It was a bad weekend for me but I learned some stuff. If I articulate myself better and ask for help things aren’t so bad. Now I just have to remember that for the next time!
The upside of laying around resting all weekend is that I finished reading 3 books. Yeah for quiet time!
