Just curious,
 
What is your weather like?  Is it effecting your fibro? 
 
And yes Sherrine, I know it is hanging out in the 80's there, but you can tell us anyway.  We wont get upset with you... lol...
 
It is so cold here, but tomorrow is suppose to be better.  And the sun is trying to come out today.  So that is a plus.  But last night it got way below zero.  Boo hoo to us northerners...
 
Let me know what your weather is like.
 
Hugs, Karen

Yes, we hit a cold snap too, it was supposed to go to -20*C last night. But at least the sun is shining, so I'm happy. I don't find the cold bothers me as much as overcast, damp weather... not my fibro anyway. My face hurts much more when I go outside in the cold.

Hi Karen, It is below normal temps here in Arkansas, highs in the 40's up to mid 50's.
I am a big woos, these temps are painful for me, my Fibro is flaring big time. My hands
and feet turn blue from my Raynauds. I sleep wearing 3 pair of socks.
 
My hubby surprised me with tickets to Florida, we are leaving this Sunday and will be
spending a week. I am originally from Wisconsin and will miss my family for the holidays.
The temps there are in the single digits with a foot and a half of snow.
 
My heart goes out to everyone living in cold temps! My body can no longer tolerate it!
 
Hugs, Robin

It's a chilly 72 degrees here and overcast.  Yes, 72 is chilly if you are used to 90 degrees.  I need to go put on a cardigan because my arms are like ice and my back hurts more than usual.  Rain is heading my way.  We need it but that doesn't make me like it!

I am hurting more today, plus have to go to work yet this afternoon. Hope that I can get myself to go. I will, but thinking about it makes it hard, so I try not to. I just do it.

It is interesting to see where the different members have different weather and how it effects them. I seem to have the most problems before a front is moving in. I think it has to do with the barometric pressure and the dampness. So sometimes cold is better than damp. It is all hard on us though.

Have a great day you all, I have to get ready for work.

Hugs, Karen

It's 37 here in central Illinois. Suppose to get rain or snow tonight and tomorrow, probably rain with these temps. I know my head feels like it is about to explode, don't know if it is the sinus in my forehead or what. I would rather it get cold and stay cold rather than this up and down all the time.
 
Gee Sherrine I hope it doesn't rain on your Christmas. devil

Gee, thanks Marlee.  That was sooo thoughtful of you to worry about my sunny Florida weather!  It's usually sunny and in the 70's and we sit out around the pool at Christmas time.     I hope you aren't an icicle for  your Christmas.  devil

Oh my yes it is very cold here in BUFFALO :-). Cold weather makes me tense up, I find if I wear thermals it helps but not much. Cold damp weather and when a front in about to move in is when I have my flareups.

Being it is only Decmeber long way to go to spring.

No doubt,
 
I was just thinking it is still three months till March, and that can be a nasty month too.  I am going to have to find something to occupy my mind throughout this winter.  Maybe a hobby or something.  I am thinking seriously of taking the winter off, though that will be hard, I am going to ask to have my days cut back at work, and if that doesn't work, she will give me a leave of absence until spring when the weather is  better again.  I have pushed myself hard for a long time now, I made it a lot farther than I thought that I would.  I do love my job, but the winter is too hard on the fibro.  And things are getting funny at work.  I think that I need to leave before the crap hits the fan.   I guess I am just venting.  It is good to have a place to come to do that.  Thank you everybody.  I feel better just saying that...

We had a real bad cold snap last week with severe winds. The skirting was down in the back and front of
my mobile so it was even worse. It was a balmy 46 in the living room next to the heater. For the first
time in the 20 years I've been here the toilet bowl in my master bathroom froze with ice about 1 1/2"
thick on my shower door. The faucets in the same bathroom froze and when I tried to turn it on the
handle shattered in my hand. That's the worst cold I've ever had here. I didn't have any kero for
the furnace so that didn't help any.

Better this week as we're expecting 40's (on the outside). Hope they're not wrong as it takes a long
time to warm up the car for the drive to work.

Nana,
 
I am sorry that you are so cold there.  Is that normal for where you are at?  This has got to be hard on your fibromyalgia.  When are you going to get kerosene?  Soon I hope.  You could come down with a cold in such a cold environment.  So take care of yourself, stay warm.  And take vitamins.  Do you have water now?  It is so hard to go without water.  I have had to do that before when we had to deepen our well.  It was no fun, and it was in the winter then too.  But we did have heat, so that was good.
 
I hope that things are better for you now.
 
Hugs, Karen
