Everyday is an Adventure. Embrace it

Hope is all I Need

Hope is every breath I breathe.  It cuddles me when I am faint.  It lifts me up when I am sad & it allows me to go on from day-to-day.

Hope is my life.  When I am filled with doubt, Hope will reassure me.

It is the gentle break of day light coming through the bedroom window.  It’s the meow of my old Puddy cat or the dog licking my face with her stinky tongue.

Hope is the radiating love that shines forth from my husband and it is the stars in the sky at night.

I hope to see the sunrise. I Hope to feel the sunset.  Hope. Just Hope.

 

New Treatment Plan

The doctor visit yesterday went well. I truly love my family doctor. He is always willing to spend as much time as each patient needs, never rushing anyone out the door, and intently listening to each thing they have to say. Anyway, he and I discussed the pain, inflammation, and continued joint twisting. Previously, he was treating me with Meloxicam, OsteoBioflex, & localized Cortisone shots. I, of course, was also using other forms of relief such as Cheyenne pepper, Turmeric, hot showers, and heat belts. Now, it seems, it is time to treat me globally he said. My inflammation medication has been changed to Diclofenac Sodium & he gave me a sample of Lyrica. I’m going to attempt the anti inflammatory twice a day for a week or 2 and see if I have great improvement. If not, I’ll move on to the ever-so expensive Lyrica. I’ve taken 3 doses of the new anti inflammatory medication so far. With only 3 doses I can already see marked improvement. This morning, my hands were swollen but not near as much. I could even make a fist! I was able to get out of bed on my own! My knees bend with less pain & I am lifting my arms way above my shoulders!

I decided to look online about this new-to-me anti inflammatory. Sources I found online indicate this medication is used to treat cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, & fibromyalgia patients for pain. That made perfect sense, because pain results from the mass inflammation that occurs in these diseases. So, I’m hopeful 🙂 I just know there’s an adventure waiting on me out there & soon, I’ll get to live it again! 🙂 I’m not sure if anyone has ever kicked rheumatoid arthritis’ butt before, but I’m not giving up until I have!!!
