I’ve got 3 random things to share this week for my Three On Thursday post . . . here they are
- I don’t mind washing my hair but I really dislike using the blow dryer. It’s noisy and it’s boring and I feel like it takes forever. The other day I wondered, could I use my AirPods and listen to a podcast while drying my hair? Would they cancel out the noise of the dryer enough so that I could enjoy the podcast? The answer to both those questions is a resounding YES. I can now listen to a podcast while drying my hair. This is a game changer for me, my friends.
- One of the things I’ve noticed since I started sharing my inflammatory arthritis diagnosis is that people don’t understand the difference between inflammatory arthritis, an autoimmune disorder, and osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease. Now, I’m not saying one is worse than the other, and I’m not minimizing the pain associated with either one, but I do think the difference matters. For a quick and dirty summary, osteoarthritis comes with age and is due to wear and tear on the joints. It generally starts in an isolated joint. Inflammatory arthritis happens when the immune system malfunctions and attacks the body and it often targets several joints at one time. It can come on at any age. I’m only just scratching the surface of learning about all of this but I do think it’s important to know the difference because, when someone says to me, “arthritis? Oh, I have arthritis, everyone gets that when they get older and you just have to learn to live with it.” I feel . . . dismissed.
- I’m considering whether I went to make a list of 22 items to do in 2022. I’m leaning towards doing it because it’s fun and I’m all about a good list. I’m leaning towards not doing it because I didn’t have great success with this in 2021. Stay tuned to see how this plays out!
And that’s what I have for you today. If you wrote a three things post, please include your link below and thanks for joining in on the fun.
