Under control

One thing I haven’t mentioned yet about #PhoenixComicon is that my #rheumatoidarthritis didn’t flare up once. It was amazing!

For the past two years, I’ve missed at least one day of each convention due to a flare up. The pain just got to the point where I couldn’t handle walking around between the buildings all day. This year? Almost no pain. Sure, my feet got a little sore. But the unrelenting back pain? The achy knees? The debilitating fatigue? Nope, not there.

Sure, I was tired. My legs felt the burn from walking around for a few days. But I wasn’t in agony. I love that I’ve finally gotten put on the right regimen of medication that seems to be keeping my arthritis at bay. Don’t get me wrong; I still have bad days every once in a while. They’re much fewer and much, much farther between, though.

Tonight my back is a bit achy, which could be a little rebound pain, but with a good night’s sleep I’ll be fine. I’m sure that the way I’m reclining in bed with the laptop isn’t helping matters either lol

I’ve made progress in my #critiques, but am by no means finished. I also have revisions out the wazoo to do on my #novel, but those things will have to wait until I have time. Work beckons in the morning.
