Yep. I am back again. I am still occasionally bitter about the random, rare, chronic autoimmune disorder that derailed my running over six years ago. That being said, it has also made me a much more grateful, empathetic, insightful person for which I am well, grateful.

My arthritis started flaring again back in January and I have been working with my rheumatologist to change drugs, get on prednisone, get off prednisone, and try and get back to a life where pain and fatigue don't dictate my days.

I am getting there. Slowly. For various reasons, one being skepticism and another being petulance, I have resisted making any kind of commitment to more holistic remedies to help me such as an anti-inflammatory diet, meditation, or regular yoga practice. But moving forward with those things, taking baby steps and seeing what works and what doesn't, could only help. It is not like eating less refined sugar and more kefir is going to make bad things happen to me. And exploring these things fit into my goal of learning new things.

So that is where I am at. More details will be in my blog.
