Lots of changes

05Aug10

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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


…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 bought my husband a Wii for Christmas and my family got me the personal trainer Wii Active to go with it. After using it for a while, I couldn’t help think of the many benefits and difficulties with this program due to my RA. Benefits: This is an opportunity to work out at […]


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 can’t believe it has been so long since I posted. Unfortunately, I had some sort of virus and that put me out of commission for a while. I had a fever and had to hold my meds. This meant that my RA flared and then I was in bed because of that instead of […]


Well I just got back from a two day trip to New York City. I decided to go to the taping of the Daily Show after encouragement from friends. The results were…mixed. I asked the show if I could be accommodated, due to my difficulty with standing. They told me to ask for a chair […]


Just had my quarterly appointment with my Rheumatologist. This is my fourth or fifth appointment with her and although I feel much more comfortable with her, I’m just not satisfied. My last Rheumatologist (and her nurse) could actually remember what we last spoke about, knew my history and had an actual relationship with me. Now […]


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 […]
