Weather Drops

Many do not know that precipitous weather changes, particularly from warm to cold, are torture for those with chronic illnesses. When the barometer plunges, so do the spirits of many who suffer, suffer, and suffer from fibromyalgia, arthritis, chronic fatigue, and other such plagues. Some are consigned, against their wills, to live in areas where this often occurs--such as Denver, Colorado.

The next time you laugh or even get a kick out of such a weather changes, remember your brothers and sisters in sorrow. Yes, "this is the day the Lord has made," but it is next to impossible to "be glad in it."

  2. That explains why my pain levels inexplicably increased yesterday. If I think back the pain suddenly kicked in around the time the temperature rapidly fell and the air pressure outside noticeably changed.
    While the knowledge does not ease the pain having some explanation helps - it adds a layer of frustration to the whole thing when the attacks of pain make no sense and seem random.
