Spark people who give support are the heart and soul of this program. If you need a life saver when you are down, go to your spark group for help. They will be there to lend a hand and lift your spirits.
I foolishly decided to paint lower walls and all trim a few days ago. By that evening I was not only tired, but arthritis was acting up making me miserable. I logged on to the Challenged by Arthritis group. I let out all my frustration to them. Almost immediately, advice came pouring in for me. Some things I was aware of and others were new aides to relieve the pain. I followed as much as I could that evening and the next day when I still had pain I tried other ideas I could incorporate into my daily activity. I intend to try to learn a new way to live as one person said I needed to. Thanks to all the great people who responded to my needs, I am feeling much better about myself since they have given me some means to control my life again.
