Rheumatoid Arthritis Flare

It has been so hard lately to get up and get to the computer and spill my brains out. My body has been taken over by fatigue for a few weeks now. November through January are always mu hardest months to get past. Rheumatoid Arthritis likes to have its way during these months every year for about 6 years now. Since I don’t take anything anymore for my illness I struggle. This too shall pass. Even though I’m not okay I will be okay because my positive out weighs my negative thoughts.

A week ago I noticed I developed another nodule on my right  pinky knuckle, man how annoying it is. I am just glad that I am becoming aware of when my arthritis acts up the most, so that I can prepare for it.

Since I am trying to battle a chronic illness without medicine it is important for me to listen to my body. If my body says sleep, I must sleep and to also up my iron and vitamin C. This is why I set up my Daniel fast starting Dec 1st it helps me get through these flare up months.

My message is to you today, is to make sure you keep a journal and learn your body. Take control of your chronic illness and stay on top of your symptoms so you can face them before they get bigger than you can handle.

Enjoy your day!

    Hi Shawna, I have had lots of trouble with osteoarthritis and have two artificial hips to show for it. Still, when I was tested early on to see if I had rheumatoid arthritis I was relieved that I didn’t. I admire your ability to fight your disease and hope that you can spread the word about your battles with it in hopes that others can learn by your experiences. God bless you and keep you positive day by day. Rich
