The last year has been been. As in very, very bad -I've had a rheumatoid arthitis flare that has lasted since February 2012, reducing my ability to do anything at all down to near zero... not able to dress myself, shower without help... not able to stitch or do any household chores. It's impossible not to be depressed when your day is spent in enormous pain, and you can't do anything productive at all except wait for bedtime (where you won't get any real sleep). So it's been hard.
Well, getting my meds in order over last few weeks has made a huge difference. While predisone is not be all-time best friend, right now it is my best friend, and I re-start Enbel this weekend, and that's going to give back almost all my functionality.
Michael and I have set a date for getting married - Aug. 17, 2012 - so we have planning to do, and getting me back into the mix of things. And that daily living stuff is what this will be about. I am glad to be back, and hope you'll be glad for along for the ride.
