This week I had one of my most painful days. My right arm was swollen and the shooting pains radiated all over,. I am grateful that it is down to a dull ache now, I know I am lucky for that. I also know that I have not seen the the worst of this disease. Instead of fearing it, I am preparing for it. I am going to do things that I love and live the best way I can.
I went kayaking for the first time last week and I LOVE IT!!! I have already begun trying to find one to buy. This is something I have always wanted to do, but never did. I always found an excuse, I am too fat, what if I fall out, what if I look stupid. I have never done a physical activity that brought me so much peace and joy. I wish I would have done it sooner! It took having RA to give me the confidence to try new things.I am by no means glad I have this disease, but it has changed my life in a positive way. I now realize that I should try anthing while I have the chance, beacuse there may be a day I am unable to do certain things.
I have much more coming soon! This week I am going to try and put a day aside to just work on my page, Have a great weekend everyone!
