Fellow bloggers, greetings and salutations. Yes, it has been a couple of weeks since my last post. I must be honest with everyone; I just haven't felt inspired to write. I have been battling a tough flare lately. At times, this became a daily struggle to get out of bed. If not for my wonderful support network, I might still be there. My rheumy has also began decreasing my prednisone dosage in order to FINALLY stop this med.
Maybe this slow, weekly decrease has also been a factor.
Fast-forward to today. I am feeling better and am ready to take control again. I accept this chronic illness I have. RA, however, DOES NOT have me. What my "monster" inside me needs to know and accept itself, is I will not let it defeat me. Not even during days such as recently past. I have also been reading many inspirational stories which have not only inspired, but have raised my spirit and strengthened my resolve. I will be posting some of them here on this blog.
I hope all of you are doing well. Feel free to post here if you are, or have been, feeling the same. I bid you peace and good health.
