Little Improvements

Little ImprovementsToday is only a few hours old, but already I’ve noticed a lot of little improvements!

I woke up at 8:00 a.m., as opposed to my usual time this past week of 11:00 a.m.

Instead of having my breakfast served to me, I cooked the food and brewed the coffee.

When I sat down to take my bath, my left knee actually opened up enough to press down against the bottom of tub. Only this morning did I realize how much of an indicator of my physical well-being this actually is.

While standing in front of the bathroom mirror (just yesterday I had to sit down as I groomed myself), I realized that I had a full head of hair. (After my hair started falling out again a couple of months ago due to my medicines, I shaved it and kept it shaved up until a few weeks ago.) I slapped on some hair gel, which has been sitting on the shelf untouched for months.

And as the photo above shows, I’m wearing blue jeans instead of warm-ups. This means that I’m actually leaving the house today! We’re “only” going out for lunch and then coming back home…but still, after days of bed rest, this is a biggie!

What little improvements will the rest of my day bring?

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