1. Trepidation When I wake up in the morning, this is the first thing I feel. How is today going to go? Will things be different? Will she be in a good mood or bad? Will she be calm or agitated and if you add in the RA, there is where I do a mental check of my joint pain. Will I have a good day or bad? Will it be painful or not? Will I get anything accomplished?
2. Optimism This is my very next feeling or emotion. I am going to make things different today. We are going to have a good day today. I am not going to let the RA and Alzheimer's rule our lives.
