Well, the MRI confirmed a broken bone in the Right foot this time. But at least, it was only 1 bone and not 3 like last time! This is good news!!
It should heal fast, if I be a good patient. I am grateful that we demanded and performed the MRI the next day after a negative X-Ray, instead of waiting 5 months and doing repeated Xrays due to stupid insurance denying over and over in 2018. This will heal fast and I can get back to exercising at home.
I find that if I keep a positive attitude it makes my life easier and I feel happier. With all that is going on in the world, I find it can be difficult to keep a cheerful attitude. But there is an abundance of good in the world and its important to remember this. Keeping negative thoughts or attitude is bad for health. Even at the worst days in the hospital during suffering tremendously, this one small shift in my perspective helped me so much. I had to find one thing to give me hope. And this is when I learned to do mental strengthening to find the good.
Yes, we know there is plenty of awfulness in the world, but there is SO much beauty and good too and this is what I choose to focus on.

It takes writing things down to realize there are good things to smile about. This will be my daily ritual. No clouds in my mind, although the fluffy white clouds floating by are so pretty.
Stay healthy my friends,
I acquired AOSD in 2008. I have suffered so terribly and have found ways to help me regain my life. This my personal journal of this mystery illness to diagnosis. I hope that I can help others with my experience and information.
