another flare-up

feeling very sorry for myself - no sleep - left arm - v v painful - typing one-handed this morning - no caps.     the first time this happened to me - many years ago - i was carted away by ambulance - they thought i had had a stroke.    the emergency doctor - saudi - said it was arthritis and i must see a specialist.  i am v grateful to him, as i had already been tested for the big a - and had tested negative - turns out the tests back then did not pick up this type of hereditary a.

this is why i find travel so difficult now - never know when its going to strike.

had a morning on the doors with jenny yesterday - nearly didn't go, as was supposed to be going with kathy who had to cancel - tempted to go back to bed - but read thought for the day* - and went to the field service group - did 2 hours walking - in a lot of pain by end - but a lovely productive morning - veryglad i went - then home to get lunch and rest - and then this full-blown flare-up took hold - am fit for nothing this morning - moan moan whinge whinge.

*yesterday's daily scripture:

Tuesday, March 17
This good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come.—Matt. 24:14.
Peter, James, John, and Andrew were finally alone with their Master. Jesus’ earlier comments regarding the destruction of the temple weighed heavily on their minds. (Mark 13:1-4) Thus, they asked: “Tell us, When will these things be, and what will be the sign of your presence and of the conclusion of the system of things?” (Matt. 24:1-3) Jesus began to tell them about events, or conditions, that would not only result in great changes to life but also identify the last days of Satan’s wicked system of things. (Matt. 24:7-12) One particular event must have intrigued Jesus’ disciples. After telling of such distressing matters as wars, food shortages, and an increase of lawlessness, Jesus foretold that something positive would also mark the last days, as recorded in today’s text.
