Quick Update from Overseas

August 17, 2017

I’m in Europe, Y’all!

I have been feeling good and have been hopeful that this trip wouldn’t cause my Relapsing Polychondritis to flare up.  So far, so good.

My terrible, horrible, no good, very bad knee has been bothering me for a month so I got cortisone injections before I left home.  The first half of my trip was work and work stressed my knee.  I took a rest day or two between work and running around like a crazy tourist and my knee is nearly fine!  I have walked miles and miles and miles in Paris and London (including many Many MANY stairs) and the worst effect is a mild sunburn where my SPF clothing didn’t cover.  Note to self:  SPF clothes don’t protect what they don’t cover — use sunscreen.

I have another infusion as soon as I get home and then I plan to go public with my illness.  So nothing is happening, really, but much is going on!

    I’ll be thinking of you as you go public! I know it is a hard step, and one that you have been working up too. There is also a relatively small circle of people who know my full diagnosis too, so I can understand that it is a process. Blessings as you journey home, and journey further down the RP road.
