Patient space

Jul – Aug: I think the heating is bothering me and the electric blanket might be causing my flares. Feb - Mar 2017: I feel like myself again. Although I have to adjust my days dramatically to be off medication, I'm feeling better without all the medication side effects. I hope I can manage this way. Dec - Jan 2017:  Holiday seasons are so hard. I paced myself and although I was in great pain in the afternoon of Christmas day and New year's day, I have recovered ok. I got a hula hoop for a present Jan: I've manage to walk 3 evenings for a short time each in 10 days.
