Erin, I help moderate the lupus forum, but had to come here when I saw your post, because the lupies talk a lot about
increased symptoms with changes in the weather. I'm going to copy your post and post it in the lupus forum so they can be validated by this scientific research.
Craig, my husband and I have often talked about
moving to Colorado (I'm making an assumption that the Durango you live in is Colorado) because I feel so much better whenever I am there. WHen I was much, much younger I lived in Telluride for a while before the famous people discovered it and it was just a tiny little hippy town. Hubby, kids and I make a trip to Colorado at least once a year and after I recover from traveling, I notice my symptoms improve quite a bit in the mountain climate.
Erin, thanks a lot for sharing this information.
