As far as RA goes, I would have to give myself a C. I'm not doing the best but then again I'm doing better than others. I keep hoping that they will unveil a miracle RA drug in my lifetime but I am losing hope for me. I still wish for it for future generations of RA patients though.
I am just coming out of the most severe flare ups that I have had in two and a half years. It hit me all at once and had me in bed for the larger part of two days this past week. I can walk comfortably again and have use, without pain, of both hands again. My back and left shoulder along with hips are still hurting but I can function with them like they are. I had to call in and take an emergency vacation last week. That pisses me off more than the flare up. I had no other option but I hate burning a week of vacation due to hurting or being sick. I have FMLA that I use for a single day once or twice a year but I don't get paid when using FMLA and I couldn't afford missing a whole weeks pay. Thanks RA, you suck.
My DJI Phantom 2 Vision drone should be here today. I did manage to go out and start my bike yesterday afternoon and let it charge a little bit ... man did it sound good just idling on the driveway. I'm pretty sure I heard it say "come on, lets go for a ride". Even though the roads were primarily clear, we had a combination of rain, freezing rain and snow, it was way too cold for me. I just pushed her back into the shop and shut the door, waiting for a better day. I hate RA and I hate winter! Haha, guess that makes me a hater.
