I had one week of vacation coming to me. So I decided to take the week between Christmas and New Years. It's been wonderful, I needed time to sleep in, read my book and just relax. I have been feeling really good, I've been stiff in the morning but that's it. I'm not complaining one bit.

 I learned about a new app for my iPhone. It's called Instagram, it's like twitter for photos. My son told me about it and I'm hooked. I suck at taking photos but like everything else you learn and get better with time. If your interested I'm jreinke.

 I feel so bad when reading other blogs and updates on the struggle people have with this ugly disease. I hope to stay as positive as I can when writing this blog but I also want to be honest. We all get depressed from time to time and I'm making a commitment to write on those days as well.  Well if anybody's reading this. If anybody is I wish you a Happy New Year and I hope you feel better cause:

Remember You define yourself don't let RA define you.



  1. HI Jeff! I really like the positive approach you are taking with RA. I too, feel that way and that is precisely how I have structured my blogs for this last hear I have been doing them. I have had RA for nearly 16 years but I believe that being prepared, positive and proactive are key to living a productive and joyful life. I would love any feedback you might have to offer me on my blog! All the best, Nan

    1. Nan,

      I wish I could write or explain myself as well as you do! I enjoyed reading your blogs. 16 years is a long time to live with RA I was diagnosed when I was 39. Thanks for seeing the positive, I would like to log in more blogs but I forget to do it. I now follow your blog so Im looking forward to reading more from you. Good Luck and God Bless.
