Struggling with Rheumatoid Arthritis
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
I usually do pretty well with workouts despite having rheumatoid arthritis. I'm always proud of what my body can do despite my chronic illness.. I try to be positive about it, but it's been hard lately.. stress with changing and ever more expensive insurance and worrying about how I will feel/act without medication.
I've always thought of my diagnosis of Rheumatoid arthritis as kind of a secretive blessing because I think it's what turned me on to regular exercise, but sometimes it can be stressful too..
Tonight all I wanted to do is sleep so I did take a brief nap and then got on the treadmill and worked out.
Doesn't it feel better when we have to push ourselves?
