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.
