It’s a Rainbow day…

Okay, well, maybe  not entirely.  Fact is, it is 76 degrees outside today and a beautiful sunny day (I’m pretty sure that winter might be over here)… and I even went for a walk at lunch time to the capital building and watched the squirrels play in the live-oak trees in the sunshine…

The rainbow part dawned on me as I laid out my pills for the day this morning…

Blue and white and beige and tan and yellow and cream and orange… all in a little pile… all very colorful…

Makes me think… it is all in how I look at this… RA has added colors to my day… and it helps me notice parts of my body that I would ordinarily overlook… like the spot on the outside of my right heel and the inside of my left heel that are about the size of a half dollar that are poking at me to try to get me to slow my life down…

RA is teaching me to slow down and pay attention to ALL of the colors in life…

  1. Haha! I had to laugh at your description of the colours of your pills! Check out the picture I took of my daily round of pills on my blog.

    Like you, I’m newly diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. And, like you, I’m trying to figure out how to get exercise back into my life asap with the aches and pains and just uncertainty RA adds to things. My rheumatologist is referring me to a physiotherapist and if he/she is amenable, I’m going to get my personal trainer (who’s excellent) to come to a session so we’re all on the same page re an appropriate strength training/cardio program for me. Good luck with your running; I hope it gets back on track soon!

    🙂 Laurie
