During a flare every sentence starts with “just barely”.

I just barely got out of bed.

I just barely washed my face, brushed my teeth and ate my breakfast.

I just barely made it to work.

I just barely kept my own head together playing emotional referee to second graders.

I just barely forced dinner down my throat due to nausea.

I just barely slept because every position was painful and I kept moving.


Hi, my name is Monica and I have RA. And, if you couldn’t tell, I’m all flared up!
