My Smart 13 yr old

Let's just say...I'm glad he's smart.

I'm glad he can fix our computer when someone messes it up (sometimes, me...sometimes, him).

Thanks, A!

"But you don't look like you feel well"

"So whose going to take D to tae kwon do?"

I decided that I would since the hubby just got home a little while ago.

He says...""But you don't look like you feel well."

My response..."I'm tired of not doing things just 'cuz I don't feel well. I feel like I'm missing too much." And I'm not pulling my weight at home. My words, not my husband's.

Something's gotta give. Right?

I'll just do it.

Sorry about my last post. I guess I was feeling sorry for myself. I guess that's why some people go to support groups. I just can't seem to bring myself to go to one. Maybe I will someday.


I'm feeling better. I had a discussion with my (physical therapist) husband, and we both agreed that I might as well just do it. He agreed to the elliptical...I took it as anything I want to do.

I figure if I do it (whatever "it" is) it'll make me feel better even if I do hurt afterwards. At least I will feel good about myself instead of feeling sorry for myself.  

I'm going to turn over a new leaf...my new motto...

"Just do it"

...thanks Nike!

To do or not to do...


If I do all (or most) that a good "housewife" (or the new title, stay at home mom) should, I end up in so much pain that I can't get rid of it. If I just do a little I feel like a failure. I

I know there must be a happy medium...but I have yet to find it.

People with RA have lives and jobs and succeed at both. I can't seem to get things going without a lot of difficulty. My husband picks up all of the slack. That is why I am so grateful for him. But after a while he is also going to be to tired or in a lot of pain as well. (He has a bad back.) He is already very tired.

How do we do it all? Any thoughts?
