Juggling Life with RA: TIme Management and Saying No
In which I muse about how living with a chronic illness is like having a full-time job:
"Appointment with family doctor regarding UTI caused by suppressed immune system, including travel and wait time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Appointment with rheumatologist for regular checkup, including travel and wait time: 2.5 hours
Physical therapy for shoulder injury, including travel time: 1.5 hours.
Mandatory Rest Period to manage fatigue and energy issues: 1-1.5 hours a day
Monitoring of general well-being, pain and energy levels: constant
Assessment and adjustment of activities and medication to make sure I function as well as possible: constant
Time to myself: priceless."
