Was actually thinking of you last week and wondering why

Glad you checked in. To deteriorate more in six months than in the entire last decade is a lot for a person to handle. I'll always remember you and the wonderful birthday party the girls gave you.

Sorry I haven't written in so long.  I have been in another rheumatoid flare and it's very difficult to even think straight, let alone write with a stylus.  I don't use my computer anymore as I can no longer type.



I'm sorry you've been in so much pain. If you're having trouble with the stylus and typing, you may want to try Voice to Text features. You will still have to navigate to the forums and start a post with a stylus, which may still not be something you can do some days. But once you open up a text box, you should be able to tape a microphone and have it record what you say.


It's like an old dictaphone, so you need to say include punctuation in your commands:  "I went to the store today period" or "Hello comma Bob period"


It won't get everything right, but sometimes it's easier to edit than to compose from scratch. I use it a lot create notes and reminders or send short texts while I'm driving. I have several disabled friends who rely on voice command tools and software to work.

@LilacTree   I'm glad you could post, I know how hard it must be! My best friend has Rueumatoid and does the infusions. Other things don't help. She doesn't write much and I can't hear on the phone so it's hard to communicate! 
   Take care and rest when you can. Prayers for you!🙏🏼😍
