Wish I could start

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

I feel frustrated. Life normally spring back for me in Spring. The bit of extra warmth allows my winter RA frozen body to unthaw, the Vitamin D filled sunlight to jazz my deleted spirit and the longer days the time line to fit everything in.

Not happening this year. I saw a doctor 2 weeks ago. My iron levels and thyroid levels were checked. The thyroid was slightly off of my norm but still within normal range. So I got doctor feedback that everything is fine. No it is not! I see them again this week and hope to get a better direction. Body is acting like low thyroid..legs so cold at night it hurts to sleep, down to eating just one meal a day because I don't feel hungry...yet still not losing weight.

I recently had my Remicade. My miracle drug seems not to be having as much of an impact the last two times, no idea why just that it is harder to move. I've been doing some exercise, but am rewarded with days of pain following. Also getting numbness down my right leg and a feeling of discoordination. I hate internal knowing something is really wrong, but having to wait for the medical side of the equation to catch up.

Got up at 6:30am hoping for a fresh start. I wish I could start.

    Sending you good thoughts and prayers my friend. I do think the stress you have been under is catching you. Stay strong. It will come.

    The distress that you have been under these last few months would only make your health situation worse. Then add grief on top of that and no wonder you are in pain and struggling. You need test results, your puppy to cuddle up too and some food on a regular basis. It does not have to be much. Maybe some comforting tea? And then of course, feel the power of prayer. There are those that are praying for you.

    I am sorry to hear about the pain and struggles. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Also keep in mind that your body needs fuel. Not eating my be hurting you and not helping you.
