Sometimes we have those days where we ache so badly that nothing sounds good except to curl up on the sofa next to the fireplace and put on a good movie. Today is one of those days for me and I am so grateful that despite my crazy busy life, my schedule is remarkably clear for today only. So I will ignore the doctor's voice in my head telling me to get up, move around, stretch, and instead will heed my arthritis body that is longing for comfort and warmth.
After a long period of a very dry and fairly warm winter, it is raining outside. I felt it coming on the past two days, the aches returning. And last night as the rain began to pour my joints felt it through extreme pain. Why does the rain affect me so?
