Lots of changes


Well this summer has been one of transition. My husband graduated from graduate school, we moved, he recently started a new job and…oh, I got pregnant. The reality of it all hasn’t quite set in. I haven’t posted for a while because it has been a rough couple of weeks and I didn’t want to […]

So I guess I haven’t written much because there hasn’t been much to tell. I’ve been really focused on being active and getting healthy. I’ve been losing weight and feeling good. My RA doc says that I’m doing well off the Methotrexate and that hubby and I can start trying to get pregnant whenever we […]

Another year…


I hope everyone had a nice holiday. I was able to go visit my family in Maine. It was a nice trip, although travel can be exhausting. Things have been going well so far. I have been staying active and trying to get plenty of rest. I’ve started going off my methotrexate to get ready […]



I’ve been kind of off the radar recently because I’ve had a cold that just won’t quit. Last week it was pretty horrible and I stayed home from work for a day to recharge. It has progressively gotten better, but still over a week later is holding on. And since I’ve held my meds I’m […]

Here in New England our summer has been….wet and humid. And that equals me feeling like crap. This week particularly, I have felt exhausted and sore. This morning was a pure down pour, so I finally gave up and drove to work instead of taking public transit. It was probably the best thing I could […]

Went to my Rheumatologist on Thursday. The appointment went pretty well. My hands are still a bit swollen, but it was obvious the increase in Methotrexate helped. She told me I could increase it some more, but I decided to wait because the weather has been so rainy here that I think it has made […]

I had a follow up appointment with my Rheumatologist. She said that overall I’m doing well, but I seem to have some ups and downs. She recommends that I go up on my methotrexate. I talked to her about my concerns. I said that my husband and I are planning on trying to conceive in […]

Yesterday was another adventure at my new Rheumatologists. I swear, she had no recollection of my visit three months ago. That is understandable, but would it hurt to at least glance at my chart and my past RA paperwork before you walk in the exam room? She wants me to see a Podiatrist for my […]

So over the last week, my feet have gotten more and more sore. I’ve thought it was me working out more, but at the end of the last week I started getting this sharp pain on the side of my foot when I walked. When I got home I realized that I had what looks […]

Life is a blur


I haven’t posted in so long because I have been extremely busy. Work obviously takes up the majority of my time, but I have been continuing on trying to stay active so in the evenings, besides working out I am often just resting and trying to recover from it. I can tell that my energy […]
