I guess I did not realize how much my medicine was helping with my symptoms of my disease. I've been without it for a couple weeks now after choosing to buy a washer instead of buying medicine for a month or two. Even when taking it I have flare-ups and bad days, but I could hardly get out of bed today and am having a hard time walking. Last night cutting up a potato was almost out of the question.
I could not stay in bed this morning, I have to take care of David. I forced myself up and took my time getting down the stairs. It took a while for me to get his breakfast this morning, cause opening a jar and cutting up an apple, raising my arms to get the tin of tea was excruciating.
After I got his breakfast I was looking up info on things to take to boost my immune system. I take iron for my anemia and vitamins and fish oil, but wanted to maybe take something more. I was surprised to find that they do not recommend you take anything to boost your immune system since auto immune diseases is an over-active immune system and taking things could actually do more harm. How the hell do you win with this?
I would like to go back to bed and I would if it would help. But the pain doesn't go away when I'm in bed, so I may as well be up. I can't really work on a project right now, my hands do not work well enough to sew or do any macrame today. Possibly tomorrow.
My beautiful Koi, they always bring a sense of peace and calm when I watch them.
I saw this little story of a donkey falling down a well on Pinterest and found it to be quite inspiring.I hope you enjoy it as well.
