It's been quite awhile since I have actually walked very far much less ran. I do stroll through casinos and stores for a few minutes at a time. However, I have noticed how many times I say the word "run". One of my favorites is in the evening when we are watching TV and I say, “I have to run to the bathroom during the next commercial” Then as I am walking slowly across the family room I will say, “This is me running.” Have no idea why I think that is funny, but I do. I also will say, “If it waddles like a duck, it has arthritis”.
Last week RAWarrior had a fun blog post called “Rheumatoid Arthritis Makes Things Difficult” Please visit her excellent site and read the post and all the comments. It does seem many of us have the same challenges like opening bottles, putting on our socks, etc. Using our hands is difficult, something the first indication something is wrong.
I read the most fascinating eBook this week written by Glenda Watson Hyatt called “I’ll Do It Myself”. Her blog is called the same, click here. I discovered Glenda on Twitter; follow her at http://twitter.com/GlendaWH Glenda’s book is about her life with cerebral palsy. Glenda is a businesswoman who specializes in accessibility on the web and in real life. She writes with her left thumb, various computer software, and good old fashion hard work to accomplish a remarkable amount of projects. (I am using a couple of her hints in my daily tasks.)
OK, my time is up, I have “to run” and watch Tiger Woods.
