Every so often, while Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy is sleeping, he starts to cry in his dreams. I find myself overcome with feelings of intense pain. And then I wake up, and realize that it wasn’t just a dream. I really am crying, and I really am in lots of pain.
It feels really weird to wake up crying, but I continue to get more used to it. I used to feel like this cast a pall over my day, but now I know otherwise. When the pain gets so bad that it interrupts my sleep and my dreams, it’s okay to wake up with a few tears.
And as usual, I’ll figure out how to make the most out of my day – despite the rough start.
Stay tuned…for the next adventure of Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy!
