During a flare-up

Brain fog, rainy weather, knees, and elbows feel like they need stitches. Back pain is crippling, you can’t lay still to make it disappear. Shoulders pinching pain, wrist, and ankles aching… The fatigue is on you like a weighted blanket. Too tired to think to cry or to be your own shrink.

Everything hurts, you smile and say I’m fine and looking at the bigger picture you are fine… With a roof over your head, in your peaceful home, you are fine with your happy kids, unaffected by the lack of your energy. You are fine you still make them smile…

I’m fine but oh boy, it really sucks to be sick all the damn time. #ankylosingspondylitis #rheumatoidarthritis #autoimmunedisease
