Ladies and Gentlemen, I declare this flare officially over!

February 2, 2016 at 9:51 am | Posted in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) | 4 Comments

Hurrah! I’m ‘back to normal,’ or as normal as someone who calls herself Pollyanna Penguin ever gets! What a relief. I managed four full work days last week AND a nice weekend (as opposed to collapsing in a heap at the weekend because of too much work). And yesterday I had a day off to attend a painting class – cyclamen – absolutely beautiful (that’s the original flower, rather than my painting which was so-so, because I’d done no painting for nearly three months!) In spite of being in a horribly cramped room and having to pull my chair madly in or stand up every time ‘teacher’ or anyone else wanted to go passed, and in spite of having my knee down all day and not moving much because we were too busy painting, I was still able to drive an hour home (Mum drove there) and then drive half an hour each way to go for our weekly shop, and i was fine afterwards.

Now if I can just get rid of this sinus headache …  still, I’d rather have that than a knee flare … just about.
