Apparently my current posting frequency is once a month. I have been so busy with my work life and my home life that the blog has fallen by the wayside. My husband and I are now officially trying to get pregnant. Nothing has happened as of yet, but at least we’ve crossed the threshold of […]


…especially to write about my RA. I haven’t been writing to process my feelings because my husband and I have been addressing my RA as an issue in therapy. My RA can be a huge difficulty for us and it is one that we have yet to work through because it is always there. It […]


So I’ve been meaning to post for a while, but for some reason I haven’t wanted to blog. Work has been exceptionally busy. I work in a college and the students are back, so there has been lots of chaos. Things are always more exciting when students are here. Our walk went really well. There […]


The people in my life always mean well when they try to give me advice on how to deal with my RA. But the more they do, the less I feel like they understand. I don’t talk about it too much here, but I am a politics junkie. I watch political tv, read political blogs […]

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 […]


The other day I had lunch with a few co-workers. We were talking about vacations and told them that I had gone to Europe a few years ago and that I can’t imagine doing a trip like that again because it was so tiring (but yes, it was incredible). One of women, who is about […]


So I went to the podiatrist yesterday. He told me that the node on my foot, was not a node from my arthritis but a bursitis that developed to protect the edge of my foot. He said that when I changed my shoes, I did the best thing I could have done for it. And […]


I’ve had some more food for thought recently regarding how I deal with my RA in conjunction with the people in my life. I’m not always great about it. When I talk about it, I often feel like I’m whining and complaining. And after a while, I get sick of myself, so why wouldn’t others […]
