Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Friday

Friday, April 20, 2012

So I woke up feeling kind of awesome today. Not sick to my stomach, not overly stiff, not really in any pain. I was excited. I started making plans to start my morning walks again. Then my knees said, "No, b***h, sit your fat a** back down."

Part of me thinks I should just accept that this is my life. The rest of me is incredibly stubborn and refuses to give up. Unless a cure is found, I will have RA for the rest of my life. I can choose to be miserable or I can choose to fight. I'll fight, thank you very much.

The mystery GI illness is still hanging around, but my insurance finally approved my new medication, so I could be on the way to doing better there. I'm sleeping better, thanks to B6 supplements, and that's helping with my RA symptoms. I'm going to be okay. I CHOOSE to be okay.

I know not every day is going to be great, but that doesn't mean every day will suck. If I just survive every crappy day, there's a whole new one waiting at the end. All I have to do every day is make it until tomorrow. Because tomorrow is going to be awesome.

    Good for you with having such a good outlook on life despite all the negatives that can come up. Everyone loves a happy face and if there's some that don't, then they really have a problem because they can't be having such a good outlook on life! emoticon emoticon

    Glad to hear that you got things resolved with your insurance.

    My GI problems, while not as serious as yours, are flaring I sympathize.

    I love your point of view! Many a morning my low back and knees will dig in their heels and scream all through my workout. I try and tell myself that I get lighter it will get so much better! Hang in there!! Its sk tough somddays. Not only fl our bodies get a workout but our emotions do too. You can do this!!
