So apparently I have Rheumatoid Arthritis.  I'm just pleased to have a diagnosis and a treatment plan.  The no fat diet (low inflammatory) is kinda hard to get used to but it dovetails nicely with my "get fit" regime. I'm almost pain free for the first time in a year and I can't wait to get to my studio and start sending out resumes.  So expect some newness within the next three months.  It will take me that long at least that long to get to a pain free state and to get to my studio, which is currently many states away from my current location.

Hey girl,
welcome back.
This is the Metalsmiths group I think you should join,to show your jewelry and other metal pieces (especially"growth")(I love that).

Sorry to hear you have arthritis, too.
I HIGHLY recommend mineral bath salts. It takes a few times of using the stuff before you feel the effects because it's cumulative. It works so well at minimizing the aches and pains now I never take a bath without it.

Thank you! I'll be sure to join the club.
I'm actually glad it's arthritis. It took almost a year to diagnose and some of the potential diagnosis were a lot scarier so I consider myself lucky.
When I have a bathtub I'll be sure to take some long soaks with mineral salts.
