Just the push I needed, but didn't realize until now

Sunday, June 23, 2013

As usual it takes me awhile to come to grips with health issues. Yesterday, when I opened my mail there was an envelope from my Rheumatologist. I didn't open it when it first arrived as I thought it was my referral for my Follow up visit. It was not that. It was a letter from my doctor that results from my Vectra DA test were back. The results show HIGH RA Activity. She wants to discuss changes in my medication, and if I want can schedule an appointment sooner. This information really upset me. I cried Saturday night. Last thing I want is more medication. I also have a lot of questions. Is there joint damage, or damage to my blood vessels? Has it affected my organs?? What about tissue & cartilage damage?? All this running through my mind was making me crazy.

What I have since decided is what will be, will be. However, I will NOT take this laying down.

My Journey has had many detours & challenges. I will not quit, but I will make the necessary adjustments to continue moving forward in my quest for a healthier lifestyle. I will ask the angels to help guide me, and direct me to changes that will be necessary. I
will learn to remove the toxins both from my body & mind. I will get stronger. I will survive!!

For most of this year I've sat on the side lines watching others make progress on their journey. It's time for action on my part. RA you picked the wrong person to mess with cause like it or not, your going down!!! Bye Bye RA
