Ange's Got Moxie

Are you a strong person who refuses to give up or give in? Are you a patient or caregiver? I've been and still am, both. This blog is all about my journey. I also love life in the country and love to laugh and try to see things with humor.

The Fire Inside

“The road to success is always under construction." ~ Arnold Palmer
And when you have chronic pain, the construction usually involves dynamite!  


Does this picture look like how pain feels to anyone else?  I'm having a flare up of arthritis in my back and chest and knees.  Along with arthritis flare ups I always pass really gross mucus even though having Moxie seems to be keeping my guts relatively healthy.  I have some stomach inflammation.  Every day right now it's not "what hurts" but "what hurts the worst". 

I'm having dreams of coating my body with that nice white fluffy stuff that firefighters use to quiet flames.  Or rolling in snow and putting out the fire in my body once and for all.  I've consumed bottles of water trying to quiet this fire.  

Over the years, I have heard so many well meaning but ridiculous things that will cure me.  Today, I am dreaming of my own.  Why not?  They might as well be something that sound like they will feel good to me.  I think I will start off with being sprayed down in the firefighting foam and when that puts out the flames so I can stand to be touched, a cold massage.  Then I'm going to eat all the ice cream sundaes that I want to cool down my insides.

What about you?  Any unique ideas to cool down the fire inside?
