I’ve been lucky these last few months. I’ve felt pretty good in general but with Rheumatoid Arthritis my good is someone else’s very bad day.
This is a representation of how I feel today. The weather was rainy this week, coupled with a cold spell settling into the region and a stressful, sleep deprived week and this is what is left. A person who feels broken from the inside out. My feet are swollen and my hands as well. It hurts when I take a breath because my costal joints are inflamed.
I’m luckier than most that I can get treatment for my disease. I also consider myself lucky that I do not have something far worse like Crohn’s Disease which is also an Autoimmune disease. So although I feel like roadkill on a winter day I’m still living and pushing through it. Everyone has something…this is my something.
