After the storms pass..............the sun WILL shine!


She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. -Proverbs 31:25

It has rained in Mississippi for the past two weeks and my 
body has been crippled by it.  My RA has been so very 
active that I have landed in the hospital twice unable to
stand on my own two feet, grasp toilet paper with either
hand, or simply open my mouth due to my jaws being
locked.  The pain has been so overwhelming that I am
now on a new journey to the Mayo Clinic in Rodchester, MN
to enter a three week Pain Management Program. I've
had RA for over 21 years and it has gotten progressively
worse.  For so long I thought that I was one tough cookie!
I could press through the pain and grin as if nothing was 
wrong.  But the past two years it became harder to mask
and harder to deal with.  I do NOT want to have to
use medicine that zonks me out or changes my
 EVER-SO-UNFORGETTABLE personality!
So...we are choosing this new path.  I ask for prayers
as I begin this journey.  My rheumy has referred me
and now it is the insurance approval wait.  OH THE JOYS!
