Controlling my " Monster "!

I hope everyone had a joyful holiday. Although I had fought a severe case of shingles beginning Christmas weekend, my family did enjoy the holidays. Instead of spiced rum egg nog, I had help from pain meds.
Today, however, is a bad RA flare day. My knee and hip joints feel like I have rocks in them. I have retreated from household projects ( for now ) in order to regain my strength.
My " monster " has won this early skirmish. Therefore, I shall rest and heal and prepare for the battle that shall commence later. Bring It On!
To all of you; have a wonderful day!


  1. Sorry to hear that you're having a bad flare day. It sounds like you're allowing yourself to rest, and continue to maintain a positive attitude. Some days we just gotta let RA think it's winning...then the next day we can come back and kick its butt!

  2. Thanks RA guy for the kind words. I did eventual kick its butt that day. Had another " bad day " earlier today. Kicked its butt again!
