Crook of a Crooked Finger, Redux

I am humbled by my end-of-year WordPress report. Apparently this little blog gets around. Way more than I do. It makes me feel a little guilty for leaving it on autopilot sometimes.

And it seems that for some reason many readers like this post a lot.

I myself like the photograph I attached to it.

I’m not sure why I do. Maybe because it’s proof I beat RA back, and my finger recovered. Maybe it’s because that’s what this blog, and part of my life, is about. Beating Rheumatoid Arthritis. Over and over again.

I say “part of my life” because I refuse to let RA encompass all of my life, my every waking moment. Sure it forces itself to center stage time and again, but I work to bring that curtain down ASAP. This particular show is not entitled to go on with impunity.

And I say “beating” because it’s an ongoing, never-ending conscious battle. I don’t mean to say that it rears its ugly head every single day, that it forces limitations on me every day. It did once, but I beat it back.

I am very lucky in that way. Very, very lucky, in many, many ways. And as long as my heart is beating, I will write about beating RA.

This doesn’t really qualify as a “new” resolution for this coming year. And I won’t bore you with any resolutions I might have made. I know there is only one that I will adhere to and that is: write, write, write.

Thank you dear Readers. I wish everyone the best of health for this and all the years to come.

Feliz Año Nuevo!
