This blog is intended to chronicle my experiences with Polymyositis, a chronic autoimmune disease that involves the body's own immune system attacking and inflaming its muscles, resulting in debilitating weakness and other complications. I hope to provide a resource for anybody looking to others' experiences with the disease.
Here is a video clip that my friend made after a trail-running trip to the Smokies during the long Thanksgiving weekend. That's right... I took a trail-running trip. My friend and I did about 50 miles through various parks in central and eastern Tennessee. The highlight was the 2 days we spent in Great Smoky Mountain National Park, which is where the snowy portions in the video are.
I had a Rheum appointment a mere 3 days after returning from this trip... and believe it or not, my CK's were normal.
