My bodies temperature has been up and down all day long. One minute I am sweating and the next freezing cold. I had tomatoes the other day and apple juice for the first time in a while (the acid in tomatoes are not good for arthritis) but I thought it's just a one off. But the next day I paid the price as my body was stinging all day long.
Today I ate porridge then veggie toad in the hole for dinner. and I have been feeling fine, the pain is less in the joints.
It's the mornings that are hellish at the moment. I have recently had a viral infection which has wreaked havoc on my joints and given me the worst RA pain I have ever experienced.
I did lots of praying and had lots of praying done for me during this time. I feel this is invaluable when you feel so low from the pain. It's like a life line of hope and helps keep me going.
Also realised that indulging in thougts of self pity isn't helping my condition either and so have been making a huge effort to keep my thoughts positive and uplifted as possible.
Been lonely with partner away for work in the week. Going to look for more domestic support as my cleaner has recently left.
