I have an appointment!

Hi m'dears...

I've not been updating my weight - it's been as high as 121.4 and as low as 119. I'm fine with this, though my pants fit better when I'm more like 114-118. I'm NOT stressing about this though. Right now I'm focusing on making sure I'm eating a balanced diet supportive of all my systems. So far so good. I'm not carb sensitive at the moment. My body just seems to want to be at this weight.

I spoke with the neurological center this morning and was so pleased. She said my referral had somehow gotten lost in the system at first, then they found it, then they thought it was too vague to assign me to a specialist, then they re-reviewed it and saw that it was in fact specific enough. I am going in for a neuro-muscular consult on February 7th at 7:45 am. 7:45!!!! I won't complain - the next available was February 22. I googled the doctor and rheumatoid arthritis is one of his specialties. I wonder if that could be what this is - it is common for something like this to come on suddenly in a person my age. It certainly came on suddenly.

I love you guys.

Love that song! It reminds me of going to the roller skating rink with my dad and brother when we were kids. Memories.

Glad to hear that you got your appointment. It may seem far away but the time will go by like that.

Sooo, glad you got an appointment!

My maternal grandmother and mother were diagnosed with RA in their early 40s. My grandmother was actually diagnosed with two different types of arthritis. This is one of the family health issues that motivates me to keep active and healthy.

Keep Positive!
