Where the Hell Have I Been?

As some of you know, my parents made a two week visit to our home which was unexpected but very pleasurable. For the kids who love their Nana and Papa, it is unconditional love and fun just to have them around. For me it is therapeutic and supportive. As I have said before, Mom has PsA (psoriatic arthritis) so no doubt she understands the ups and downs in pain levels on a level that is beyond what I have experienced.

That said, however, I am having more and more days of unpredictable pain. Plans are being cancelled, new arrangements to be made and, of course, there is always disappointment. Most of the time this is pain I wake up to in the morning and even in this incredibly hot Dallas area weather, I have a heating pad on my back to try to help with the pain.

So I am trying to get my “act together” to resume my blog and continue the saga of my lab results…..so hang it there. I will be back!


  1. We support you no matter what! I was so inspired by your blog that I've started one of my own. I'm sorry to hear you are having a rough time but I'm right there with you. I start new meds tomorrow so hopefully that will make a difference. From previous posts, I can see that your parents love you very much and will do anything to be there for you, so I am glad that they are there by your side during this time of RSD-crap. <3!

  2. I believe anyone who has RSD will understand if you need time for yourself.

    You are inspiring people with your words, and that is a precious gift. You needn't worry yourself about writing every day.

    You are in my prayers, and I am sure many others. <3
