I’m sorry I haven’t been on here much lately. I’ve been having a lot of health challenges.
The good news: No problems with C DIF since I finished my medication in December, and they didn’t find anything wrong on any of my blood work.
The bad news: The reactive arthritis is still going strong, and could be here for 12-18 months.
They gave me some steroids last weekend to help with the inflammation, and that helped bring the pain down from a 9/10 to around a 1 or a 2. But being in near-constant pain for the past 7 months has just really ground me down emotionally and mentally, as well as physically. It’s hard not to go to the dark place in my thoughts when I feel so bad for so long.
So I’m currently spending all my time trying to figure out how to waterproof my computer, my knitting, and all my books so I can live in the bathtub, as the water helps take all the pressure off my joints.
Any good thoughts would be much appreciated 🙂
