Happy New Year! May this be a year of NO flares !! Live happy and pain free!

My wish: A year of no flares for any of us!!

Get ready! Get set ! Go! Let’s do it dragon slayers!! Happy New Year!!! No flares for any of us!! I pray and hope that we all stay healthy and flare free this year ahead!!

It’s been almost exactly 1 year that I have not had a flare or been in the emergency room. After all I’ve been through, I would do anything to stay out of that room. The cold rooms, the painful needles, the steroids. etc. etc. No! No!

No more for you or me!!

From this day forward, positive thinking, positive thoughts, sending out love to you! We must have gratitude for each day.

I am so eager to start this new year. This doodle that I drew says of all.

As many of you know, each day, I drink a cup of coffee and draw. Today’s doodle is:

“And she danced and she sang and laughed and giggled and she held up the glass of champagne to toast away the old year!!! This year, this NEW year, was going to be the best year ever!! It will be filled with success, and prosperity and good health and joy and love!! She could just feel it!!!! And when the clock struck 12 midnight, they all hugged and fell asleep and snuggled together under the big beautiful moon 🌙

Happy New Year friends‼️❣️🎼🔮🎉⭐️

Wishing you all good health and joy this year.

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.

  1. Claudine,

    Thank you for your positive message to start the year. I am new to your blog. My story is long one but after nearly 3 years my doctor and I have settled on a diagnosis of AOSD. It has been a long road, but I too have had a full year of no flares. It was a hard journey to figure things out, but Anakinra + diet (no dairy, eggs or gluten) + exercise has been my secret sauce. In November of 2019 I could not walk down the street, even after significant improvements from Anakinra. However, with a diet change.my flares finally stopped. And now I walk 15-18 miles per week and have as much energy as I ever did. I have always been a very active person. I am now back to my previous levels of activity and energy. But what a journey it was! I have not taken any prednisone or any type of pain meds since last March. I take a ton of supplements but it all seems to work.

    Thank you for this blog. I definitely learned some things. Here’s to healthy and happy 2021!


    • Dear Sam, I am so thrilled you are feeling well!! Your comment made my day! My wish for you is that you live your life active and joyful and pain free. May this year and many years forward, be nothing but a long distant memory of what a flare is. May the dragon fall off the earth never to be heard from again!!!! Happy New Year to you ⭐️‼️
      Stay healthy my friend.
