Life without RA seems like a lifetime away

I do hope that RA hasn’t come to define my life, but I when Robin at The Truth About JRA asked me about a medical test I’d taken some years ago and I couldn’t remember I found myself thinking ‘That was before R.A. Well … I can’t be expected to remember THAT far back!’

I was diagnosed eighteen months ago.

That scares me. I’m not sure what to ‘do’ with this realisation that RA has become such a big part of me … possibly the best thing would be to screw it up in a small ball and throw it in the waste paper bin.

Thank goodness that if I wake up with this thought at four in the morning I have my trusty iPod to console me – newly loaded with two excellent glum thought-destroying missiles – Cranford (a present from hubby) and Pride and Prejudice (a present from me!) I can also picture Wren building a chocolate pizza, which is sure to cheer me up!


Chocolate Pizza – it’s out there!

Thanks to Maggie for bringing this to light. After a lengthy discussion in comments about a chocolate pizza diet, Maggie found this actual, real life chocolate pizza ! And as an added bonus there’s a picture of a man on there who bears a resemblance to the gorgeous David Tenant! Mmm, chocolate pizza and David Tenant – what a combination that would be! I have to say, a 10″ chocolate pizza from firebox doesn’t come cheap … but if it came with David Tenant (or DDT as he is rather unfortunately known around her (Divine David Tenant), it would certainly be a bargain.

Apologies to all those expecting a serious and thought-provoking post. It’s been a loooooooooong day (and anyway, you should have known better!)
