Perfect and effective. I have: RA, OA, RSD, degenerative disc disease, scoliosis, severe osteoporosis, ankylosing spondylitis, dupuytren's contracture, fibromyalgia and have been literally hit by 2 trucks that then gave me concussions, frozen shoulder and more. However, I LOOK in excellent health. Hell, my husband lives w/ me and gives me my humira and has taken me for countless epidurals and he probably doesn't realize what my "life" is like.
Instead of my usual weekly musing-I'd love for you all to read "The Spoon Theory" and what life is like for those of us with unseen "challenges":
I had to point out to him that I was going to be in the car the next day for 4 hours and then the day after for another 2. With my back/joints sitting through another 3 hours of driving, dinner and mountain hills for whatever walking we would want to do-there was NO way I could do both. I also had to make sure I rested up and did the required stretching and walking b/f I got into the car for that long drive.
Still got to the hotel wanting to vomit from the pain in my back and it was a very painful 5 days.
