In the midst of a shift of medications for RA, I have a side effect that I haven’t had since the summer of 2008, and last night I was telling my friend the Vicar of Hogsmeade that I remembered writing a blog post about it. The analogy I used made her laugh right out loud, which was good medicine for me, and if you know her, you can surely hear it in your mind right now.
Then this morning, I got a new comment on that very old blog post, deeming it “a perfect analogy,” so I decided to reprint it here. It’s from a different time in the family history, of course, but it’s part of who I am.
So…from July 1, 2008, I give you “Scorching Ray.”
