One year ago today I wrote my first blog post. Althought I started out over at the Arthritis Foundation’s site, the more I looked at blogs, I liked some of the formatting options offered on different hosts. I experimented with blogger and typepad, and eventually copied most of my posts over here (but left the original posts (there).
Recently I re-read some of my old posts.
- How about this one, when I said, …I don’t think I’m up to seeing any more doctors for a while. I refuse to average two appointments per month this year… That was in February; it’s probably just as well that I didn’t know what the year held in store!
- I posted a photo of Seymour.
- I got my first F.
- A year ago I was incredibly stressed at having to go back to a doctor I didn’t like. I was worried about asking for a different referral. It turned out to be easy, and now I think that getting that second referral is one of the best things I’ve ever done.
- I discovered that the reason nobody’s been able to find a problem with my thyroid is that RA can feel like it’s attacking the throat.
- I’ve progressed from I Won’t Tell to Response to the Clueless to making announcements on Facebook (but I still think it’s a good idea to be discrete).
- I found a pill organizer that holds all my prescription meds.
- I wrote about The Myth of Healthy Living.
- Best of all, I met a bunch of really nice people. Thank-you.
For eight years January 15 has been associated with a midnight phone call. Blogging is a much better thing to associate with this day!
