Best laid plans ....
In my quest to prove to stinky face that the plaquenil isn't working. A few days ago I stopped wearing my compression socks...which usually spells trouble.
I swell up by the second day and can hardly walk by the third day.
It's been 5 days and no swelling and no increased pain.
I think I out smarted myself.....and I may have to stay on the stuff.
Okay Okay I'll say it...perhaps it is working for me. Darn it all to heck and back. We'll see...give it more time.
Oh look ... a cookie
So does that mean no sock jewelry? No canklets? No entrepreneurship?
I am glad Plaquenil left your water logged legs at the pool....and you are giving it more time. Atta girl...
That's a funny story - I guess even though it didn't work out the way you expected - it's great news and reason to CELEBRATE! I'm glad to hear the plaquenil is working for you.
I just need some sunshine, so I can break out the sandals!
It's cold and misserable here, but I've been wearing those thick hot compression socks for far to long...it's time to air out the tootsies.
I really dont wan't to jinx myself, but I really should have puffed up like a balloon over the weekend. This is the first time in over a year that I haven't swollen up.
Oh look ... a cookie
SITC..Maybe when you air out the tootsies maybe the fungi will resolve and take root on a Birch Tree.
If you have to remove the nail, you can always glue a fake on to your skin or perhaps just paint a fake one on....an idea..
SITC...they should be able to resolve the fungi issue. Remove it as the last resort. You need your nails to protect your digits...
Good for you on working out and congratulations on the weight lost. Losing a pound or two is a big task with IT..the steroids, the pills, the fatigue, the pain,the slow paced life...good for you...Woohooo!
Not able to Wear High Heels
Dear Sits In the Corner,
It was a big blow to me when I realized I couldn't wear high heels anymore. I felt a little less like a woman. I guess maybe that has to do with the brainwashing I received as a young woman. I felt I always had to wear heels and nylons for work .
I'm glad I'm not the only one that cannot wear high heels anymore , I just sold them all in a garage sale last weekend. My knees and feet can't handle them anymore. I get like this burning pain sensation in my feet every so often and before I started plaquenil my feet felt like I was walking on broken marbles or something and it hurt so bad first thing in the morning. My knees are the problem the past few days just achy and popping, I have to walk really slow and turn slow or I feel like my knees might just give way.... :x
Hey, Everyone, Don't know exactly where we can find them, but I just read an article (in the Seattle newspaper) about how shoe designers have finally learned that this particular generation (or several groups of them that are the current carriers of the cash) is more demanding of their shoes. They (we) want them to be stylish, attractive, but supportive and comfortable. Companies like Easy Spirit have been trying to do this for a while, but their "dressy" shoes are somewhat limited. The "big" designers are supposedly on the bandwagon now. They are making pumps and other "dressy" type shoes with more cushion and styled for better support of the feet and legs. They mentioned some of the designers, but the names escape me now. Anyway, I would guess we could find such things in the better department stores. They equated the new attitude to combining sports shoes with designer heels. I would really like to see some of those. Since we all seem to be either mourning our inability to wear heels any longer or wearing them and suffering, I thought you might want to be on the lookout for these new breed of shoes, as I am.
