If your are reading this, you probably know me. I am 54 years old, a hospital pharmacist, from South Jersey and have Rheumatiod Arthritis. My hobbies include cooking, entertaining, worrying and anxiety.
I lost my Father a couple months ago to lung cancer. He fought the good fight for 4 years. They were the best and worst years. We were blessed to have him so long, but he went thru so much. Actually we all did.
I guess the stress, poor sleep, an eat on the run diet, a mentally tough job and a predisposition for anxiety have my Rheumatoid Arthritis roaring. My doctor put me out on medical leave for one month. I am determined to use that time to find a way to feel good again.
I want to share my journey. I am currently trying several alternative therapies and have more lined up. I am staying on my regular meds but I need something more.
My month will include: Traditional Medical Care, Counciling, Reiki, Probiotics, Floating Therapy, Oxygen Chamber Therapy, Accupuncture, Meditation, Massage,Tapping, Walking, Yoga, Writing, Coloring, Veggie Smoothies, Art, Essential Oils and anything else I come across.
Want to follow along? I wonder if any of this stuff will help?
l’m going to find out.
