Super Break

Because there is no such thing as taking too many breaks!

Will Return

I know that most people are expecting to read one of my usual “Sunday Break” posts. But today, I am going to do things a little differently.

(Hint: the title of today’s post is not a typo.)

Starting today, I am going to take a break from blogging. Don’t worry, though – I will be back soon!

Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy will return in ten days, on Wednesday, November 4.

*****

Down here in the southern hemisphere, we are enjoying Springtime. I think I’ll do a little cleaning around the house and office, and hang my cape out to air. I’ll rest my mind and body, as I come out of one of my worst flares ever.  I’ll enjoy the upcoming Day of the Dead celebrations, and maybe make some pumpkin pie.

*****

I might even finally get around to reading The Psychology of Superheroes: An Unauthorized Exploration[Amazon Associates Link]. Yes, this book really does exist…and it’s one of the many unread books currently on my bookshelf.

*****

I spent this past Friday and Saturday cleaning out my inbox – a superhero feat in and of itself! If you sent me a message that I somehow overlooked, please resend it and I will respond after my break is over.

*****

Stay tuned…for the next adventure of Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy!

The Life And Adventures Of Cateepoo: Thank You Rheumatoid Arthritis

I am proud of myself. I accomplished a lot yesterday. I shared a part of me that I like to keep hidden, a part of me that is very vulnerable. That is hard. But, rheumatoid arthritis is not all bad. It has been given to me as a gift to learn about myself and to grow as a person. Yesterday was a growing experience for me. Thank you rheumatoid arthritis!

Warm Socks: I <3 My Rheumy!

  • There is a plan.
  • I get to know what that plan is.
  • I am comfortable talking to her.
  • She listens to me.
  • She looks at the paperwork I fill out for her.
  • She advocated not paying a bill.
  • She doesn’t spring surprises on me.
  • She gives me information (I don’t have to pry it out of her).
  • Once she considers me stable, I won’t have to see her as frequently.
  • She’d like to reduce my number of meds.
  • She gives me hope that I can get my life back.
