    Here’s my list of simple swaps to make daily life easier.
    – ordering groceries online to be delivered
    – getting my hair washed/styled when having joint pain
    – asking a family member to assist with daily chores
    – establish “quiet hours” to reflect and recharge
    – use voice memo on iPhone to journal thoughts/feelings
    – check in with rheumatologist
    – a warm bath or shower to loosen joints

    So my rheumatologist says my rd is under control yet I still have so much pain and stiffness. Is that usual?
