The Fabulous and Frustrating 40s

In July 2008, I joined sparkpeople because I had hit my highest weight ever. Daily exercise is part of my life now, but I still have a lot of work to do on the eating side. The 40s are awesome in so many ways, but the big downside is that the weight is harder and harder to take off. I'm happy that I've gotten a lot healthier, but I still have a lot of work to do!

Thanks for commenting on my blog! i love the colour o your page!!!!
I have not tried a chiropracter because we do not have benefits, but I would prefer a physiotherapist over a chiropracter, especially since it seems to be a muscular issue.

Thanks for the thought!

You are a busy bee too!

Well, the kind of Psoriasis that I have isn't an arthritis issue- at least not yet. I get patches of skin that are red and itchy that are called plaques. They didn't used to be very bad, I just had a few on my scalp. Over the last year I had a flare-up and my calves just look awful now.

Phototherapy is bascially going to a fancy tanning bed at the doctor's office. It filters out the UVA light and radiates UVB light onto the skin, which triggers vitamin D production and seems to work wonders against plaques. The topical medicine they gave me is basically a steriod. I'm trying to avoid shots/pills unless I absolutely HAVE to go that route.

I can't recall if I put it here but I posted on WP about why this DC thing has been in my head for over 20 years.

I'd LOVE to stay longer but my friend and her husband work and taking up a weekend is the most ill do to them.

It's too much disruption having never stayed there before.

Once I stay someplace and ppl feel comfortable knowing my rhythms so to speak, they're usually happy to let me have free reign while they're away but that's too much to ask somebody who doesn't know you that well--or I'd stay cos the RT ticket is paid whether it's a weekend or 2 weeks, ya know?

What type of treatment is Enbrel? I've been trying to avoid shots/pills if possible. I don't have the arthritis side yet, but in the last year or so my skin really got terrible :( Summer is no fun when you feel like you can't wear shorts, cropped pants or dresses!

Thankfully I started phototherapy and it seems to be working. The nurses scared me that I might have huge co-pays, but thankfully it's entirely covered. Yay!!!
