For those of you who are new to this blog, I started this back in 2016. It was private at first, and then made public. It started as a journal about weight loss and then it morphed into Oh- My-Word my RA went into remission. And then I learned about taking a T3 medicine along with my T4 medicine that helped my mood immensely. Then my anxiety started to get better as I worked diligently on that. So, I want to link to a lot of these articles here and pin this one to the top.
RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS – check here and here.
HASHIMOTOS – check here.
ANXIETY – here and here and here .
Tomorrow is June 1, 2020 and we are in the middle of a pandemic caused by COVID-19. Our particular county in Colorado is moving to Phase 2 of re-opening and our gym swimming pool opens tomorrow.
I’m thankful I spent the past four years on becoming stronger mentally, physically, and spiritually because I need all of those strengths right now to survive in this world we are living in right now. It’s crazy times. I feel like I should speak out about the racism going on and I don’t even know if I have the words.
We were born into a family that did not tolerate racism. In 1963 our neighbors were African American and that is who my sister and I played with. Apparently my mother saw the uglyness of this all (other children not allowed on our lawn because we played with them), but she never told us that until we were adults. My dad stuck up for them in a neighborhood meeting. I didn’t realize how absolute UGLY racism is. It’s just YUK. My daughter posted some books that she is reading to help her understand even more, because like me she is not racist, but just saying that doesn’t seem to be enough. So I think I will educate myself some more like she is going to do.
I am going to try and write a blog post a week like I used to. If you are feeling down and need someone to talk to, you can always message me. I answer all my messages.
I hope the links to blog posts help you. Right now I am adding a “supplement.” I know, right? Patty taking a supplement. I have refused all supplements especially if they are Multi Level Marketing and you are making money off of selling me your supplement. But back in 2019 one of my readers commented about how she took Turmeric and her arthritic hands straightened out. So I’ve added a supplement with Turmeric and other Joint Health aides in it. I’m on day 4 and off the daily Motrin which is huge. I’m doing video reviews for the company and if after 30 days I’m sold on it, I’ll recommend it to you. I won’t be selling it and I won’t be making money off of you to sell it to you. I’ll recommend it IF I believe in it. Period. That’s how I roll.
Have a great JUNE!
