boy do I ever hear you!! We have had so many changes in the last two weeks and everytime a cold front comes through I feel stiff and achy. I'm so tired of it and winter hasn't even started. Need to go get some Xmas shopping done today and I already popped the meds so I'm hoping they kick in real soon so I have the energy and the mobility to get what I need done. This disease really stinks. I am really missing the days of being to just pop out of bed and start the day without pain and stiffness. I know massages would help tremendously with me and I'm sure they would also help with the anxiety and mood swings as well. Hope you feel better soon.
DX - lupus and carpal tunnel syndrome

I do both kinds of shopping. I do alot of gift cards as well because our family lives out of state so it is easier than shipping. it just so happens that my father is coming for a visit this weekend and he hasn't been down here in over 2 years and I really wanted to get my parents something special this year since they are getting up there in years and then he can take it back with them so I don't have to pay for shipping. I actually enjoy the shopping when I feel good, love to get out there and see all the great ideas for decorating as well. I'm really a kid at heart, I love the holidays, love the cooking, the festivities, the lights and just being with family. Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving. (maybe we will all get gift certificates for massages for Xmas!!)
