During our summer travels, I’ve been blessed to visit with lots of family and friends. This means that I’ve answered the “how are you feeling?” question many times. Lately, my answer’s gotten complicated, so Lora and I have been discussing how I should best respond.
One of my favorite bloggers, Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy, nails it with this post. I have never been happier or more content, despite the fact that my RA is uncontrolled, my physical health is poor, and as of now, I am unable to work. Because of my attitude, I feel in control, which is absolutely huge in a life of daily unknowns. He perfectly articulates “how I’m feeling”, even when “how I’m feeling” also includes bedridden.
The seriousness of chronic illness cannot be underestimated. Neither can the power we have inside ourselves to deal positively with it.
Thank you RA Guy for helping me finding the right words!
