Long time no see :)

Finally I am back online-it has been forever!! First of all let me say it was nice to read the comments-it reminds me of why I am doing this even though at times it is sporadic-I was offline for so long due to money problems. It is not only physically, and emotionally a draining disease but it is also financially difficult.

I am still in the midst of a "flare" and I have started a new job about 6 weeks ago and I just keep hoping that I can keep it together so I do not lose this job. I am managing a retail store which is GREAT money and I love the job but it is so demanding and too many hours and I wonder honestly how long I will be able to do it. It is between 60 and 75 hours a week which is hard for someone in good health but even harder for someone who has a constant fever and swollen achy joints.

I have had a bothersome symptom lately also. I have had the numbness and tingling in my legs, arms and private area for over a year now (coming and going) but now I am waking up every night with my arms tingling really bad sometimes I have to wake my husband up to rub them because I can not move either of them well enough to rub them. This is really troubling me-if anyone reads this and knows what could be triggering it PLEASE tell me as it is scary, anyway that is all for now-take care and NAMASTE :)
