Here's the deal...
I've just been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I know that what I should probably do is give a call to all my loved ones who care about me and tell them individually but I have phone phobia (no, seriously) and the idea of having individual conversations about ME, no matter how well meaning and kind, gives me the heeby jeebies, so if you're hearing it here for the first time, I'm sorry. I just can't do the phone calls.
I've been in progressively more pain for over a year and finally found a doctor who knew what was going on. It's going to be a challenge, but this week I'm feeling optimistic. I even finally had an answer when Zack asked me "Mom, why do you ALWAYS have a doctor's appointment on Friday (my day off)?"
I'm only blogging about this because I just may mention it a time or two and I'm interested to hear from anyone else who suffers from RA.
Love and smooches!
