I have not stuck with my RA-post blogging. I am working on two posts right now. Every time I sit down to draft them, I lose steam.

I am in such a bad place right now.

I feel awful. I am in pain. It takes 5 or 6 times more energy just to do everything. I feel immobile more often than not.

Climbing is difficult. I am stiff before and after. I am in pain afterwards. I just can’t climb. Physically, I cannot complete climbs, I have trouble with the moves. Everyone rocks at the sport and does not have to deal with the same physical barriers as I do. I cannot keep up with my usual climbing partners and I can tell they do not want to climb with me. So, once again, I am on the lookout for a new climbing partner.

The Orencia IV infusion did not work this month. I had vacation for three weeks and I wanted to travel. I feel so under the weather I never made it farther than my climbing gym!

All this has makes me very depressed. I am immobile, barely capable, and the only thing that made me very happy is near impossible right now.

As always, RA gets in the way of life.


Hi, my name is Monica and I have RA.
