I’ve been busy and depressed and mostly just out of wack the last few weeks.
I can’t seem to snap out of this funk I’m in and sadly it isn’t really getting any better.
A lot has happened in the last few weeks…
I had a fabulous trip to Las Vegas to see Garth Brooks! He was amazing! I’d seen him in concert in high school at Texas Stadium. You remember the big shows and guitar smashing he used to do…the Vegas show was nothing like that. He told fabulous stories and sang all the best songs!
Also had the chance to eat some amazing food and catch some other shows. Really a trip I’ll never forget.
Baby Girl had her last day of first grade and we spent the weekend at a little farm house with friends. I napped a lot and the kids played. It was nice and relaxing.
Like I said, I’ve been depressed. About relationships, friendships, RA. You name it and it’s been on my mind. I think I’m actually turning the color blue. I’m a walking commercial for antidepressants. There have been a few days where I just couldn’t function.
My joints in my fingers and toes are still swelling and actually they’ve been getting redder and more swollen. I called Dr Navy and found out that I’m actually having a “flare.”
I’ve read tons of articles about RA and flares and what to expect and I never realized that I was actually having one. I guess I assumed that since I have RA, I’d always have swollen joints and pain. Turns out that all that napping was the start of my flare. The Doc called in a steroid pack and again I’m feeling like a million bucks! It’s awesome how those little pills can work so fast! I have my next actual appointment with the Rhuematologist next week. I’ve got a list of questions.
Baby Girls is gone for a few weeks. She spends most of the summer with my Dad and family who all live a few hours away. It’s good for everyone. I get a break and Baby Girl gets to hang out with the family and cousins.
This is all I have the energy to do tonight but I do want to share some home improvement projects and other things…I’ve put off my blog for too long. I’ve got lots to catch up on.
