i am calling it rd, rheumatoid disease, now. i think that using the word arthritis gives people the wrong idea. it's not 'just arthritis'.
i participated in a twitter chat last weekend (#rheum). it was kind of nice to see other people have the same questions, concerns, and feelings that i do. it's always nice to have your feelings validated.
but today i woke up with so much hand pain. my hips hurt, my head hurts, my ankles and feet hurt. but OHMYFUCKINGGODS my hands. my fingers, my wrists, my knuckles. all of it.
in happy news, yesterday a tiny person and her mother knocked on my apartment door looking to sell girl scout cookies. YES PLEASE. but $4 a box? when i was a brownie selling cookies for the first time, they were $1.50 a box. guess i'm older than i thought i was. two boxes each of thin mints (for awesome husband @_antgas), samosa, and savannah smiles. i love lemon flavored things.
it snowed a bunch yesterday. the roads weren't too bad today, and it got warm enough that some of the snow melted. but yesterday it snowed on top of snow left over from last week's snow storm. oh, and it's going to snow again overnight tonight. so when i wake up tomorrow morning, there will be snow from three snow storms piled up all over the place. amazing. and it's barely february. we have months of this shit left. my birthday is mid-march, and i was born during a blizzard. i've had to cancel or change birthday plans numerous times because of snow. fuck.
i wish i had something more useful to say. i went to my internship today, i remembered to eat, i voided my bladder numerous times. i'm feeling sleepy and achy and lazy now, and i'm planning on ordering pizza for dinner and crying.
