Snow and rain are supposed to be creeping into our area. The weather system is wreaking havoc on my joints and arthritis making my day pain filled. I’m curling up under warm blankets and going to see whether my fingers will work.
It’s like a weight – a large and heavy weight on my body – when the weather does this. Every joint feels like it is being pushed on, compressed really tight and at the same time pulled apart, like the pressure in the joint is so much the joints are going to explode.
I’ve taken my drugs. The only other thing I can do is keep warm and rest. Sleep is the refuge which masks the pain. When the levels get this bad, all I want to do is sleep. Sometimes if I sleep for a little longer, I can get up and manage for the day but other times – like today – sleep is only an escape.
It is going to be a day to put on movies or tv show and curl up under warm, warm, blankets. While everyone is watching the skies for rain or snow to assault and make driving difficult. I’m going into a cocoon to try to keep warm and ease some of the pain.
