as i guess with the disease (possible multiple ) we become hyper sensitive ..foods that used to never bother me ..yow ..the minute i eat something i shouldnt poof swollen hands and feet and everything in between .. intestinal noises that can wake the dead ..and just a gutt tightening sensation ..let alone ..muscles changing ..and cramping and stone hard ..tops of feet look like s mall mountain range of popping up bones hurt ..nuckles look like a truck ran them over but swollen ..misshaped cream headache ..especially after knowing it was bad to eat it because it s not good for you ..but the ice cream headcahe ..oucchhh ..then a permament headache from eating something that we shouldnt ..then the entire cycle begins again...creaaky feet ..stumbling or crawlig in the a.m to the bathroom..then wondering how bad is this going to get ?? then the hyper tears flow ..then the attitude to sanp out of it could be worse ...then the past memories of how it used to be ..then future thougths of how it s going to be ..then overwhelming thougths ..then back down to a low hum of life and thougths ..i got my finger stuck in teh sliding screen door that my hubby was suppose to fix biggie ..but it is if your body is hyper sensitive swelled up ike a ballon at the carnival that they make animals out of ..pain like someone hacked it off with a dull knife ..the paintolernace was so much better before RA ...its a bumpy tough road ..but today the sun shined and the sky was gorgeous blue ..and i sat and listened to life outside the window ..and i thougth .its still sorta good to be here matter what ive been threw and will go threw ...

" a friend who is very wise told me a long time ago to give up potatos.. not because of t the starch , carb thing ..but becasue in a survey given by actual farmers that is the number one vegetable they wouldnt eat due to all the pesticides and it being a vegetable that is grown completley under ground .
