This Week in my Life: Week 14 of 2016

The view from here:

Got a sweet package from my friend Gwen this week.
It sure gave me a Riesen to smile! ;-)

a tasty mixed berry shortcake


Overall, this week was meh - still not feeling great overall. Still waiting on one last insurance-related hurdle before I can start Tysabri again. Also, another not so great week on the reading front...

What I read this week:

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things Of note on the MS-front is that a few pages of this book are devoted to the spoon theory. The book is mostly about the author's experiences with a handful of mental illnesses, but she also has RA, and discusses the spoon theory and how it relates to both her RA and depression. There is some good discussion of the whole spoon thing (If you do x & y, even when x & y are basic kinds of things like showering and getting dressed, there's no way you can do z, and so on) and how we all too often are overly self-critical of our inability to do z. Yup.
