Juice Fast – I made it 39 hours!

If you know me even a little bit you know I eat like an unsupervised adolescent. I'm addicted to sugar and have a love affair with bread. Until the big 4 0 my metabolism and fairly active lifestyle allowed for this. Sadly, I found they weren't lying when they said it all goes downhill after... Continue Reading →

When your body hates you

When another person in your life doesn't like you it's easy enough to create distance but when your own body keeps putting kick me signs on your back what do you do? The good news is that my treatment, for all of its ineffectiveness, pretty much stays the same.  The bad news is I've collected... Continue Reading →

Journaling is making me a complainer

The reality is I have always been a complainer.  It's something I've always struggled with.  I was once told by a very intuitive person that I vibrate at a low frequency.  I had no idea what that meant but she said it means I lean towards the negative. I have to actively work on being... Continue Reading →

When people get me

There is something so gratifying when you find someone else that can relate to your situation, really relate, not just think they can relate because their husband's uncle who is 94 also has arthritis in his knee. It probably shouldn't be surprising that I had someone get me yesterday at my Yoga for Arthritis and... Continue Reading →

But I like the additives!

Since starting the tour of doctors I've also been doing some research on natural remedies.  There is a whole lot out there that says it will cure all sorts of things and I'm going to use my degree in internet bullshit and say more than 99% of it is well...bullshit. Yesterday I read on a... Continue Reading →

Inspiration comes from everywhere

  I shut down this blog because I'm good at starting things and terrible at finishing them.  I can come up with a million excuses, from not being able to type much because of hand pain (voice to text is getting better!) to not even really remembering the purpose of starting the blog. Earlier this... Continue Reading →

Yoga for Arthritis and Chronic Pain

I found a 6-week workshop on Yoga with Arthritis and Chronic Pain.  It's too far away to attend long-term, about 35-minute drive.  But it's very helpful.  I'm learning about modifications and poses that can help with joint pain and enthesitis.  I really want to build a daily practice, every day I start with the best...

a Flair and a mile stone

Yesterday my SI joints started giving me fits. By this morning I could barely roll out of bed. I called out of work and spent the entire morning doing the very minimum I needed to do to help the kids get off to school. After they were gone it took another 2 hours just to... Continue Reading →

Physical Therapy in the Pool

I started PT today and they put me in the pool. It was just 30 minutes of some very simple core stability exercises, very underwhelming. The biggest concern about all of this was what to wear! I did not want to wear a regular swimming suit. For some reason it just felt weird because I... Continue Reading →
