A message to fellow Spoonies as Winter settles across the land.
Self Care is most important. If you’re flaring, rest, relax, take care of yourself.
There is no shame in asking for help…none at all.
Snuggle up, get as comfortable as possible for you, and ride it out, you can do it.
Winter wreaks havoc on us all, find peace in the fact that you are not alone. Remember you made it through last winter, you can do it again. 
You are strong enough, you can do this, I have faith in you.

The joys of a cup of tea.

This is why I drink about 5 cups of tea a day.

don’t go too crazy with certain teas though if you are anemic or at risk of being so because tannins can possibly hinder your non-heme iron (veg-derived iron) absorption. [x]
for people with healthy digestive tracts it’s not a concern though :P

Enjoying the cool weather outside right now. I would kill to have it this nice Saturday night for my race. If I can get a good cool night I think I could finish in under 30 minutes.

My last remicade ever.
Almost went into anaphylactic shock, but nurse was op.
So probably onto Humira.
