Ramble #2

Greeting Race Fans!

Took an hour but I was finally able to get into my website to add Ramble #2 … sigh. I have been feeling pretty crappy for at least a month now. The snow has finally all gone and I’m looking forward to warmer days. Plus, I’m going to Cuba for a week on Sunday. I can’t wait!

painful right thumb
Ouch!

My right thumb doesn’t appear to want to work today and its very painful. Strap that thumb brace on. It seems like each day brings one joint that is acting up and more painful than the other joints. It really makes no sense and is impossible for me to find any sort of cause or pattern. I find it very frustrating and find that my anger at being sick is on the rise.

Next month I’m suppose to start on a biologic. We’ll see … I had to get a chest x-ray, which I’ve done and a blood test that I can’t seem to find a lab that does this specific test -QuantiFERON. This is because I always test positive when they do a TB skin test, even though I’ve never had it. My mom is the same, weird.

My ten week yoga program is over and I am funnily enough going to miss it. It really was a great program and much needed as there is a waiting list to get in. I had to wait four months! It is specially designed for people who have chronic conditions. I have signed up for the program in the fall as the shoulder seasons seem to affect me more and cause my activity level to go way down.

I will post a pic from Cuba when I return!

– adios amigos!!
