Striving for Health

I lost 50 lbs. with Weight Watchers. Got off Cholesterol and blood pressure meds. Then got Rheumatoid Arthritis, had 2 should repair surgeries when my bones cut through my rotator cuffs, and my weight loss came to a stand still, but for 2 years have kept that weight off. Now I'm using Spark People and getting results again. Still struggling with pain, medications, etc., but grateful and determined.

Hi Janis. I saw your comment on the RA team, responding to one gal that she had a flare-up and what more to do, and you said about how you swear by the Imak Arth. gloves. You said that they give a light compression. I've had so many different varieties and brands and I'm sure that I've had them, to no avail. Nothing helps, just the meds., when they're working right. I wonder now if the Orencia is working to it's potential! That's another story. Anyway, about the gloves, I've even gotten the ones for the computer that plug right in to it and heat up, but they're not warm enough. Other than the meds. when I'm bad, I tape hand warmers to my wrists, but that doesn't get the whole hand. Joanne Fabrics has arth. gloves for when sewing,e tc. and I've gotten them to no avail and they say light compression. Maybe I'm more of a serious case! My feet are so painful too, so I'm to have an MRI on the worst foot to see if its the Orencia that's not working all the way or if it's another issue. I'm telling you this because I know that you understand you evidentally have painful hands and more than likely, feet too. I feel in some way I'm worse than last year. I think of shoes that I used to wear for Winter, and I wouldn't think of them now! What are your thoughts? Hugs to you, Dearie, Karen

Thank you so much, my dear friend, for the emoticon wishes. It's truly been a good day in all ways. And yes, love is grand and aren't we ever lucky women?! We can be so thankful.
Karen xoxo

Fortunately, being retired, stress doesn't usually push me toward poor food choices. I can avoid stress a lot of the time. I actually seem hyper attuned to stress as I get older. I still have enough bad triggers to keep me hopping.... emoticon
