12 Days Of Rheumatoid Arthritis Christmas

On the twelfth day of Christmas arthritis gave to me

Twelve days in bed

Eleven tubes of joint rub

Ten prednisone pounds

Nine days off work

Eight heat and ice packs

Seven methotrexate

Six days of nausea

FIVE FLAMING JOINTS!!!

Four bumpy nodules

Three swollen fingers

Two wrist guards

And a cortisone shot in my knee!
