I'm going on holidays...
I'm leaving for my vacation to the Dominican Republic tonight so I won't be on the boards until next Friday (Feb. 15th) at the earliest. If anyone from the Living With Rheumatoid Arthritis team needs anything, create a post and maybe one of the... Read more
Drove to Sudbury on Wednesday after work in white-out conditions but my husband had rented a Yukon with 4-wheel drive so I felt quite safe. And, the best part about the Yukon was the heated seats. Real nice. Left here around 5 p.m. and got to... Read more
My Complicated Life

So I bought this DVD and I did it this morning for the first time and OMG, did it ever get my heartrate up! After 22 minutes, I wanted it to be over but I persevered and did the whole Cardio Party!... Read more
The echocardiogram came back negative. I don't have pericarditis. The nurse said that I was probably just having a severe flare that happened to be affecting the joints in my chest and back. Thanks for everyone's support and concern!... Read more
I called my rheumatologist yesterday about this pain I'm having and he booked me for a echocardiogram this morning at 8 a.m. because he thought it sounded like pericarditis (inflammation of the fibrous sac surrounding the heart).

Update on My Health
For the last week and a half, I have been having pain in my sternum and shoulder blades and it sometimes feels like my rib cage is squeezing the air out of me so that it's hard to catch my breath. Because of this, I had an appointment with my G... Read more
Official Weigh-In Day
I belong to a challenge where the weigh-in day is Monday so I can't change my weight tracker (below). So, I thought I would just post my weight here in my blog just like I do every Wednesday.
I'm down 2.6 pounds. Woohoo! So, officially I... Read more
My Post in Basic Monthly Challenges
I just posted this in the team named above but I wanted to post it here, too.
I just want all of you to know that I'm having a really bad week and I'm not normally like this. Normally, I'm a fairly happy person who eats reasonably well. ... Read more
My rib cage feels like it's suffocating me, like I can't breathe. My sternum hurts and my lower back hurts and my rib cage hurts and I just don't feel well. Is it RA or something else?... Read more
Well, Wednesdays are typically my weigh-in day but I've joined this new challenge and we're supposed to weigh-in on Mondays so what to do, what to do? I weighed in this morning but was the same weight as last Wednesday so I guess I don't have t... Read more
I wasn't going to weigh in today because I knew I gained but I did and I only gained half a pound from last week so that's not too bad since I've been eating really badly and not exercising.
But, it's time to get back on track. Foodwise, f... Read more
Well, I did 20 minutes this morning even though the phone rang part way through and then my iPod earbud got stuck in my ear. I was going to do half an hour but my legs were still sore from yesterday. Yesterday, DH and I went to an art gallery ... Read more
Well, I gained 1.8 pounds from last week but all-in-all, that's not too bad considering I've eaten two Christmas dinners plus Chinese on Christmas Eve, plus lots of cookies and chocolate plus a couple of mugs of Bailey's Irish Cream.
I had ... Read more
