Things that make you go Hmmmmmmm.

When I was 16 or 17 I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have just always dealt with it and lived my life.  It's never been a secret but it's also nothing I really talk about.  It just is.  I hurt some days and some days I don't.  Sometimes it worse then others.  Just life, lots of people have it much worse.  
About 5 years ago T2 lived with my parents and helped them on their farm.  He also worked as a mover. On one of his trips he got me a copper bracelet. The paper that came with it said it helped with arthritis pain and some other things. I loved that T2 thought of me and have worn it ever since. 
I started out wearing it on my right hand in case I ever wore a watch, which I don't.  At some point my left wrist really was bugging me so I put the bracelet on my left side.  I have worn it there ever since. I haven't noticed that left wrist hurting much at all in a very long time. 
Fast forward to about 6 weeks ago.  The bracelet broke. It is twisted copper wires and one of them broke and sticks out.  I was crushed.  I loved it.    I put it in my jewelry box and intend to keep it.  What has me going hmmmm is this, This week  my left wrist has hurt like a dirty mother!  It does not let up no matter how much pain med's I take.  What would you think??  I think it's very interesting.  I told T2 and he is on the lookout for another one for me.  I can't wait. 
My parents are coming tomorrow.  It's my aunt's 80th birthday on Sunday.  We are all going.  I hope you have a good weekend.
