now we're talking sue!! why thank you little lady!!! i love it!! the owner plays it when we do the 1 min rounds in KB class when he pops in to kb class about once a month *quiver* sick he also plays that one that say's "lets get ready to rumble..." laugh2

thanks sue...its been a whole year this month since i slowly started. still cant stretch worth a hoot. still crab-walk..but i'm alive and breathing and actually have some muscle tone. something i lost when i had my back surgery and the AS monster when it went full blown. i just wish i were more coordinated. i'm a mess. they were 3-4 moves at a time and i'm like what???

they had fireman hoses they'd wrap around our waist..one partner would hold you back, the other had the target mat and you had to pull towards and hammerfist it...i was a jumping bug! lol. i bet the guy holding the firehose was laughing his head off behind me! laugh2 but hey i tried right?

and yes ma'am..i certainly dont see why ice cream cant count...you are using your biceps to lift the spoon and then your jaw muscles to open and close while eating the ice cream..correct??!! laugh2 roll that takes work! i know art would vouch for that..he loves his ice cream! i treated myself to some nice cold watermelon when i got home. heart

i am having a great time. the instructors are great. real life scenarios and good exercise but no stress on my joints at all. i asked before and one of the ones that remembered me from kb said i'll be great since i survived kb and petes class. they encourage you so much you cant help but want to give it a shot. gianna is at about 95% ready to join me. but she wants alot of young un's in her class..and there is. anyone over 27 is ancient to her! eyes so i'm a dinosaur at 41! laugh2

i am so happy we have this forum...so much happening....its exciting! even if we are hurting or sore...i'll be a lifeless dishrag in the morning..but right now i'll jam to rocky's song. lol
thanks for posting it! made my day!! cheerleader buggy hugss

Sue, I was curious about your "eye thing". When my "flare up" started a couple of weeks ago I noticed a puffiness under my left eye and a slight feeling of pressure. I never had this before and nothing in the left eye (My iritis was always in the right eye). It went away or I just never paid attention to it because a lot of other pains started up. I have had blepharitis but this was different.

A few weeks ago I had a puffy and pressurized right eye during a wicked flare. Around the same time my doctor prescribed nasacort which got rid of the eye problem. However, after much urging from the people here at KickAS, I went to the ophthalmologist and she found a freaking "cortical spoking cataract"! Sheesh ~ I'm only 50! NO, the cataract doesn't cause pain or pressure or puffiness - it's just a bonus of taking steroids for JRA when I was a kid. Oh, what am I talking about? Right... nasacort. I don't know why it works, but maybe it's worth asking your MD about?

Friday: walk: 2 miles, 40 minutes
bike: 15 miles - 75 minutes

Nascort...I'll keep that in mind. At the time I had no light sensitivity or redness...so, I didn't give it much concern. Oh well...it's gone now.

I never had this before and nothing in the left eye (My iritis was always in the right eye). It went away or I just never paid attention to it because a lot of other pains started up. I have had blepharitis but this was different.


plans are to go to the eye doc next week. like most of us, trying to make sense of it. its basically "just pain" and "pressure" and headache inducing. could it be allergies? well, i take zyrtec every day, but allergies can get worse over time, and it is ragweed season. still, when i would get "eye allergies" before starting the zyrtec, my eyes would hurt, but then i could rub them, ball up the mucus that had accumulated in them, and they'd be temporarily relieved. no mucus in them, so thinking not allergies. blepharitis? well, as you said, this feels different than when i was dx'ed with bleph, but i went ahead and washed out my eyes and used the moisturizing drops and maybe it helped? but not like it did when it was definitely bleph, so either its not that, or its just a really bad case of it. so i guess when we can't figure it out ourselves, home remedies don't work, and it's bad enough, that's when we go to a doctor.

actually lots of "flare" symptoms, not sure which is the worst, probably whatever is hollering for the most attention at the time. but if we ran to the doctor every time something felt bad, we'd always be there, so i guess we all try to figure out, when is it important to go, and when is it just something that either we can handle ourselves, or something that nothing can be done about.
