Take it easy

November 17, 2007

My ankles are worse and have been flaring up these past couple of days. Why? Who knows. My right wrist seems to be experiencing a little flare-up, too. Earlier I was planning to go to a concert tonight, but I’m glad I decided to stay home and take it easy. My entire right leg is throbbing and aching so much because of my ankle. It’s amazing how every inch of our bodies work together, and if one thing is out of sync, it throws everything else off too. I don’t normally like taking any kind of pain medication, because it makes me feel weird, dizzy and like puking (I prefer to reserve these sensations for classy nights out at the bar) but tonight I had to pester the on-call doctor to call in a new prescription for Tylenol 3. I’m minutes away from popping one of those, slapping the ice pack on my ankle again, and then curling up in bed and hopefully being able to relax enough to sleep. This little ankle “charade” is really starting to get on my nerves. It can quit anytime now, honestly. Although sometimes I don’t mind being “forced” to lounge around in my extremely attractive (uhh) sweats while reading books and being lazy on a Friday night.

    Hey, I found your blog through the rheumatoid arthritis community on livejournal. I was just diagnosed several weeks ago and am also living in Minneapolis. Just wanted to say hi, and I really like what you’ve written so far.

    Hi Jenny,
    Thanks for your nice comment. I’m sorry to hear of your recent diagnosis. Is it RA? I hope you’re feeling OK and it’s not too hard on you right now. Hang in there! Feel free to contact me anytime if you want. :)
