Weighed in and lost 7.2 this week. I know it was because I was sick for 4 days but I will take it. I have been busy this morning grilled zucchini, onions, mushrooms and tried plum tomatoes which didn't work out to well but still yummy. I also want to pull tons of kale & freeze it. I am trying not to pull a ton of vegetables from the garden because my sister in coming out in 12 days and I want to give her a lot.
My neighbor has a peach tree and I pulled about 50 of them a few weeks ago and they were pretty small. I put them all in a brown paper bag to ripen and oh my gosh they are wonderful. I called and asked her if I can get more and she said yes. They are about 3 times bigger than when I pulled them last. I am probably going to take a few hundred since she doesn't eat them. I am going to make a peach cobbler and freeze a bunch after I slice them up. I was thinking about peach jam but not sure about that yet.
OK enough of my rambling this is my hubby's only day off & I want to spend some time outside with him & pull more weeds.
Thanks everyone for all your well wishes. I am feeling great now & I go to see the specialist again on Wednesday but also found a new one that I will see the end of August. I can't wait to tell her off for making be in pain for 4 days and telling me to go to the emergency room when I told the nurse what medicine makes me feel better. Doctors what are you going to do.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Hey Dutch:

I've been living with chronic illness now for going on 10 years. It took 6 years (and I stopped counting how many doctors) to finally properly diagnose me. I've got lots of spinal issues, but I also have Lupus, which like RA is an autoimmune disease.

I'm not trying to bring you down or discourage you, but try not to get down if you have flare-ups here and there. It's all part of having a chronic ilness. You're truly blessed to have found a doc who was able to diagnose and treat you for the RA. It's half the battle.

If you ever get discouraged or just need to vent, feel free to pop over to my blog and leave me a note. Sometimes even the people we are closest to and who love us the most can't fully comprehend what we go through. They want to and they try hard, but it's virtually impossible for someone who doesn't live it to fully understand.

Congrats on the weight loss! It's something I've battled my whole life, so I know what it's like. Keep up the good work. Take care and best of luck with the RA. There are a lot of women like us out there in the world and I've met some amazing people through my illness/pain. Be well and I wish you peace, Martha (aka M Sully)
