Hi folks, Since I received so much support and encouragement when I posted, in despair, in the worst of my flare-up, I thought it only fair to give you the good news: after 2 weeks of misery, this latest flare up since to have passed! Yesterday I felt human for the first time in 14 days, and was nervous about today. But I woke up feeling pretty good! My aches and pains are very manageable today and I feel, if not energetic, at least not exhausted. I feel like I can do stuff. Yay! Thank you all again for seeing me through this awful time.
