Peterson wrote about her hands failing her. That has been also one of the
frustrating parts of this disease. I can walk even painfully somewhere -
might get there a day late but I can make it - but trying to paint with
painful hands is awful.

Acupuncture- have an appointment with Chiroproctor next week to see if I can
get my hands back. Have been painting in egg tempera and it is a mess! Also
trying to fold paper with kids at school etc etc etc Won;t even try to weave
them this year! Also allergist is going to prescribe methotexate for me since
family physician insists I see a rheumatologist - right - next appt is next
Allergist is a wonderful man - he believes in quality of life and will help
he can even outside the allergy realm. Will give update to those who care.
