Whether to post here or not. First I want to thank all of you who have been so supportive to me over the past few months as I have tried to learn how to cope with this disease and to move on with my "new" life. At times the pain and flares have been terrible and it has been great to have all of your words of wisdom and support. While my life still isn't 100%, I am feeling better. The meds have definitely helped with my hands (my main problem and source of pain, I have severly deformed fingers but hey guys I am now typing with 2 hands and only making - I think - a few typos) but I am still having trouble with my knee and foot but not like it has been - so I am hopeful the meds are working there as well .I am just impatient and can't understand why my foot still wants to be a problem - I have shoes I want to wear, really cute ones and I can't right now. Unhappy face! And I guess we will wait and see what the MRI results show on my back which seems to be the new problem area right now. He thinks it is something I can't even spell, but I have seen that some of you have.
So while I am not well (ok so I guess none of us ever are) I guess my thought is tonight as I read thru the posts is do we only post problems or troubles? Don't get me wrong, I know that we all have things to complain about and want help and suggestions on, but does anyone ever just want to start a post about how we have had a great day and want to share? I would love to hear about your days, your families, your fun, etc. Am I on the wrong site? I want to be somewhere where we can share discussions about our disease and how we deal, but I also want to be somewhere I can look forward to better times and better days. I try not to be a negative person and am always looking for the best, and while it's hard I am trying to look for the best of this disease and how we have to change our lives. I for one don't want to let this disease beat me and I am going to do everything I can to stop it and get better. OK, so maybe not but I am not going down without a fight.
So anyway, just a thought. Anyone want to go with me to start positive threads, share a great day or experience or a thought? Or you guys can just kick me off this site if I am on the wrong track here. Here's to hoping for some positive thoughts and experiences soon!
