Well here I go. Today I'm in pain. On a scale from 1-10, 10 being the worst. I'm at a 10. I am swellen with pain in my joints. I think that this is getting worst. My day starts at 5:30 am. Today was one of the days that I woke up and just wanted to stay in bed. I know that many people wake up early and don't want to go work. This was one of those day days. However, I love my job and I know that I can't leave my students alone. The whole day I walked around in pain with no one knowing that I have RA. A diease that reminds me everytime the weather changes. Tomorrow I will be taking the IV treament that I am now on. I am not happy with this treatment because it takes 2 hours. I guess I should look at the positive..but not today. I'm tired of all this today. Maybe I will be acting different on Saturday. After I get over the effects of taking the med.

My Family

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! It is time for a new start. This is the year that I will find a way to stop the pain that I suffer everyday. I think that it is time to manage the pain some how. I feel that this past year I had to suffer a lot. Maybe I'm suppose to be in pain for the rest of my life. Well that is what I am going to find out because I will not rest until I try everything.
My meds have been increase to 500mg. I am taking remicade at the moment. This med has to be taken using an IV. I hate it. I started at 300mg. Remicade is not the only med that I am on. I am on other meds too.
I am still in pain. The pain has decrease since I started the remicade but everyday is different. What I want to find out is that if I am the cause of the problem. I'm going to exercise and watch what I eat. I know that I have to exercise. I am going to find something that I do because the regular things I can't do. At the moment I can not lift my arms over my head it is to painful. There are many things I have trouble doing because of the RA. Washing my hair, writing on the board at school, driving, walking, sitting, picking up a cup are some things I have trouble doing. There are center foods that I have to watch out for. Foods with omega-6 are things that could increase the pain and swellen.
In the new year I just was to be painless. I want to find something that will work for me. RA is different for everyone.

Christmas Time

I love Christmas time. This year is difficult because Paul's younger brother passed away this year. Paul has been stronge and has not mentioned a lot about it. I know that he thinks of his brother everyday. Being able to go to Fiesta Texas every weekend has helped him, not forget him, but helped him stay happy. He remembers happy times. He has enjoyed all the shows and some rides. I am not a ride person so I don't really get on the rides. I enjoy the shows. This year they where great. The Christmas shows have been the best. I guess because holidays are always the worst when you loss a love one. Paul met one of his favorite actors that was in one of the high school shows. She is in one of the Christmas shows now. We went every weekend this year.
It has been great to be able to spend time with family too. My family has been great. We enjoyed Christmas yesterday because Rudy, Julie and Paul won't be able to be there on the 25th. We had a great time.
Merry Christmas..To all.

My lights are out. I woke up in the dark thinking that I had forgot to pay my CPS Energy bill but it was the weather. I heard the rain after a while. I hope that I never really forgot to pay my bill. I hope that it is not like this on Friday. On Friday is our field trip to the Zoo. The kids and I are excited. Parents are excited too because they are getting the day off to go. Well I am only taking four of them. The 3rd grade class is attending the field trip too. The teacher for that class asked every parent to attend.

Earth Day April 22

There are many things that we can be doing to save the earth. Different stores around town have been helping by making cheap reusabe bags that we can buy to reuse. We don't have to use the plastic bags from the stores anymore. When the bags first came out they were almost priced at 4.00 dollars. Now they have gone down to about a 1.00 dollar. I think that is great because now I have no excuse not to buy them.
