One Day At A Time – Inktober 2020 Day 16

I try to take one day at a time but lately several days have attacked me at once.

– Ashley Brilliant

Day 16 I got the results of my hand x-rays: mild to moderate osteoarthritis.

It was a relief to finally get a diagnosis of the cause of my hand pain – but a disappointment that it was not a condition that could be cured or go into remission. From experience to date I know that anti-inflammatory medications and safe pain relief only subdue rather than relieve the aches and pains.

Thinking positively (with my big girl pants on..):

  • Pain lets you know you are still alive
  • I don’t have lupus or leukaemia or…
  • My blood profile is normal
  • I’m not old I just need some WD-40
  • Keep calm and drink champagne!
