this may sound a little weird but I am a little worried. I have a 2nd opinion appointment with a new rheumy on the 2nd and right now I am feeling soooooooooo good, that I am barely showing any flare signs. Ankle swelling, gone. Stomach has been good. Psoriasis on eyelids cured with the FML. Random rash on legs just a mere scar now. Cheeks noticeably less red lately. Energy level is up. Joints are feeling good enough to go dancing and walking again. *sigh* I realize that this is actually what I want in the long run - to feel like a "normal" healthy human being - but when I am going to the doc I would really like to look sick. I always feel like they are going to label me with Hypochondia or Munchousen Syndrom or something psychological like that when I feel better at doctor time. Thank God that I have learned to snap a photo of my symptoms when they are bad. A picture is worth a thousands words! The docs are always surprised when I whip them out but also grateful that I have a photo reference. I know this is a ridiculous worry but I had to share.
