Hi Everyone! I have Rheumatoid Arthritis which is in my shoulders, back hips, hands and knees. Plus Diabetes since childhood, and a form of diabetic neuropathy in my skin which causes my skin to be super sensitive to everything that touches me. There are more health issues unfortunately but those are the ones I am most troubled by at this time. I have been a herbal remedy user for years and many times a good cup of tea can help me when I need it For the moment I have medical insurance which is wonderful, but they do not cover a number of my prescriptions which is not so great. But I am happy my Dr visits are covered for sure!!! Too bad it does not cover herbal remedies either but I know most of the Drs I have seen think herbs are old wives tales, so I only talk to the pharmacist about them when I have a different script to take, so as not to cause problems with what I am taking.
My scrapbooking and card making definitely help get my mind off of my pain sometimes! Plus visiting with friends here and learning new ideas. Without internet I would be a sad case with nobody to talk to but my pets. They don't always answer me when I ask a question you know. I am also heavily into paper crafts which I use on my cards and pages and they are easy to take and work on in a waiting room...I hate sitting there for hours and doing nothing or touching magazines that sick people touched!! I do drink echinacea tea every time I go to the Dr, better safe than sick ya know!? Plus I LOVE the tea it is called Yogi Tea and to me tastes like candy, Yummy!!
I am kinda rambling here so I will hush up now and come back another time. I am saying some prayers for everyone to feel better and have less health problems.
