I have to be honest..The closer I get to my nephew’s wedding, the more exhausted I’ve become . It’s not that I have anything left to do, I just feel overwhelmed, and think I am probably in a flare.. For those of you who might not be familiar with rheumatoid arthritis, there are times when the disease decides I need to rest, and I have to put myself on steroids (prednisone), to be able to do basically anything. It’s frustrating, but I’m lucky there’s something I can take that will put my disease into a mini remission.
I have so many videos I need to make, and I’m just too exhausted to make them, and a flare also make me have muddled thinking, so if you’ve noticed how scattered I sound in videos, it’s because of that.
So tonight I’m starting the prednisone burst, so by the wedding next weekend, I’ll be feeling a lot better. We did deliver all of the things I need to get to the wedding that we can’t take on an airplane to one of my sister’s friends. I can’t tell you the relief that gave us. Don’t get me wrong, we still have a ton of things to take with us, but at least the rest of the things that are fragile will make it there in one piece. You never know if it rides under an airplane…and I didn’t want the shadow box to get broken before they get to see it..
