Sometime no matter what I eat, and how much I rest and try to do all the right things that I know that I should to help alleviate the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, it just gets the better of me. It has been a while since I have felt like myself. The self that lives inside of me. I am fatigued and my hands are really hurting these days. I know that this is only a temporary thing. I have been riding this rheumatoid arthritis roller coaster long enough to know that everything with this disease is temporary. Right now I just need to take care of myself and rest. I need plenty of water and more rest.
The fighter in my wants to do what I want to do, like work on my blog and countless other things that bring me pleasure, no matter how I am feeling and RA be damned. But I know that cannot happen right now. Fortunately for me I have learned the lesson a while ago and I really just need to rest. I need to listen to what my body is yelling at me and just do nothing until I start to feel better. I am hoping that we will have a break in this weather pattern we have been in that has been adding to my discomfort soon. Until then I am going to take my own advise and rest.
