short note....

Thursday, September 04, 2014

Today I have been busy readying my manuscript to send via email to the publisher. Ran into a snag and have to wait for a phone call from them. Paid some bills and now am signing onto Spark for the first time in a while.

I cannot decide if the new medicine is working for me or not. My hands look a little less swollen and I do not jump and scream if someone touches them....however if I BUMP them all bets are off. My feet have been very painful as has my neck. Pain is still waking me up at night. I have not had any notable side effects from the medicine which is good, although I would like a round of that weight loss one!

I can't believe that Fall is around the corner.
Where I live it can snow in October. i hope it doesn't. We will have snow plowing bills before long. Sorry, didn't mean to depress anyone. We have to somehow get a roof on our garage before the snow comes.
I've got to lie down, I will write again later.

    You're in my prayers daily. emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Maybe the medicine is starting to work... sometimes they can take months to get going. And no side effects is good news... you are tolerating it.

    Since I was off my RA med for several weeks I have been wearing my IMAK gloves at night and find they really help. Otherwise any gloves overnight seemed to help prevent some of the stiffness, especially when it's cold.

    So great to hear from you. Pain and being unable to sleep are my constant companions as is near freezing morning temperatures. Can hardly move my hands sometimes they are so stiff with the cold. We so live in the wrong places!!
    Wonderful to hear you can at least write! Something to take your mind off things! For me its exercise. Cramming as much in as possible before my surgery on the 29th, knowing I face another long layoff :-( And then I know my right hip needs taking care of. I am sure that is what causes all my back pain. Its toast. Staying on the surgery treadmill.
    Keep in touch where you are able.

    Oh Cyn, I think of you all the time and wonder how you are and now I hear from you here, so that's good. You're still kicking, as they say! emoticon Me too! I feel like you with not being sure if the medicine is working or not. I feel that my hands are better, but my feet and ankles are so painful. I just went out for a long 10 min. of a very slow walk and with throwing my body somewhat into it because of the pain, I did it. I feel that we could count our min. alot longer than the norm, because of our pain, don't you. Yesterday I put 30 min. down when I did a long 10 min. walk. I hurt so bad and yet did it. My knees don't feel like they want to hold me either. I know that you know all about this. How are your shoulders? We can get snow in October too where we are. I remember the kids getting all dolled up for Halloween and it's like, "Where are you?!!" when they got ready for trick or treating!! You could tell by their mask or painted face hopefully who they were! Oh, for the memories!! I hope that you have good days ahead. You deserve them! Love, Karen
