There are clearly times when the body gives in and the arthritis makes its “surge” in as many joints as it can. Like this week, I can’t help but feel like a sack of potatoes with the amount that everything hurts. My jaw especially, which is the weird part, because that never hurts. So I guess I should talk and eat less. Might actually be a blessing in disguise.

I’m not sure why everything hurts so much. It is really a shame because it’s such a nice fall / October weekend. If I had to go pumpkin picking, I’d manage to carry the little one painted in florescent green — and that would max me out.

What’s a boy to do? “Wait it out.” Quietly.
