RA the long haul

Monday, July 16th, 2007

I have been neglectful of my blog the last 2 weeks.  I guess part of it was a disapointment that noone has joined to tell me their story or to just say hello, send words of encouragement etc….but I realized that this is not the reason I should be doing this.  In the long run this journal may one day benefit other people in just knowing what to expect on their own journey.

 So, the last couple of weeks have been sort of non-eventful. Carolyn had bronchitis so we missed a couple of treatments.  The surprising thing was that I had triple the stress the last couple of weeks and I didn’t have a back slide.  A little more trouble sleeping but I didn’t feel like I had been run over by a mack truck.  It was so good to know that my treatment was holding up to pressure.

I did have a treatment yesterday and we did some acupuncture and the jmt and talked a lot about how I am feeling etc…Carolyn asked me what percentage i thought i was at in treatment and I told her 60%.  I really feel that I am a little more than half way to my full recovery.  I was very tired after my treatment yesterday and slept like a log last night.  I feel pretty good this morning.  I believe!!
