GinaTheAllMyLifeBigGirl's Journal, 25 January 2013

Day 11 - I saw my RA Doctor yesterday. My knees have been hurting quite a bit, so he gave me a shot in both knees. WOW....that hurt. I complained to my brother all the way home over that one! WOW! So my knees are sore. He told me to take it easy for a couple of days. I guess I will have to forego my running.....ROFL

Anyway, I'm happy to report that I have lost 2 pound since last week. I'm very excited about that. I hope that I can stay on track with that in the future. If I could "kertale" my urge to stuff crap-o-la food in my mouth to comfort myself...I think that is the key.

I've been stuffing myself for years with food that was VERY high in fat and calories. It was a way of dealing with the pain. Pain from emotions to pain in my body. I have the ability to ignore a certain amount of pain. I don't usually take any medication until I'm actually hurting. Guess I'm just stupid like that. I've learned to just be patient and wait for the Meds to kick in.

My husband is UBER patient with me about this. He knows when I am in pain. He can tell when its almost too much. He will comfort me...or send Lil Simba (our youngest kitty) to lay down with me. Simba is a comfort just laying with me....he puts his little paw on me. Its as if he is telling, "It will be okay Mom."

I'm hoping that in my quest to lose weight, it will help with the pain in my joints. Maybe if I wasn't over 300 pounds, my body wouldn't hurt so much? I'm keeping my fingers crossed! BUT I also know that taking 15 mg of prednisone a day keeps my appetite very high. There have been stories of people getting up in the middle of the night to fry up a pork chop because they are hungry. I try VERY hard NOT to do that.

I guess we will see what the future holds. I'm thinking of going to the Y next week. Maybe start to strengthen my legs and arms. I'm trying to keep my body moving. Just a thought. I always have a million things that I want to do when the Doc tells me to take it easy. Its like its automatic. Just like you have thinking of millions of fun things to do while you are stuck at home without a car. As Alanis Morrset sings, "Isn't it ironic?"
