And who needs meds?

I cut my plaquinil dose in half on Saturday, now it's Sunday night and still no stiffness or pain!! I even got up and ran with my running group at 7 am (ran/walked a 5K) and then came home and edged the gardens in my front and side yards and then took my 3 year old to a birthday party. I'm exhausted now but not sore.

I cannot believe the energy I have now. I don't think I've had levels like this since jr. high school. Really, it's been that long. It sounds weird but I feel almost free. I am starting to do 3-4 major things in one day. I used to be able to only really do one big thing a day, felt terrible and guilty/lazy for not being able to do anything else.

  1. It's kind of hard to believe, isn't it? I love what you say about feeling free. I did a ton yesterday, too, and expected to be beat today but I'm not. Just energetic! And yeah, it's spring, but still... this is different. Another cool thing, my mom is 76 and has had rheumatoid arthritis for many years. She's been on the diet about a week, and was commenting that she's not craving anything, she isn't hungry. But the best thing, she said "I've been so clear-headed this week." After feeling fuzzy for a long time. Plus she called yesterday shocked because her blood pressure, after being a big big issue recently, was nearly normal when she checked it yesterday. A person doesn't want to get carried away, but this is all pretty awesome!
