Hi! It's Pr Glo again, I'm a 36yr Old Hispanic Female Diagnosed with Psoratic Arthritis among other things I live in Wethersfield, CT and it's 15 degree's andwill  be going to 2 below zero this week. This cold is killing me  I am in soo much pain my knuckles turn purple I am achy especially my knee's ankles and feet and lowe back and shoulders and neck and really exhausted it's hard to get out of bed I take vitamins but that doesn't help I just started Jogging on the treadmill 1/2 hr every day so I'm hoping that will help me feel a bit better once I get over the pain of just starting to exercise. I'm sure you guys can relate let me know if you feel my pain and what you are doing. Thanks Guys. Stay Warm. PR Glo

PR I hearr ya it is -42 here today and my joints are just screaming. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis so it shows no mercy when the temp gets this cold. I have even found if I have to go out which thankful I don't do often it takes hours for me to get warm again. It doesn't seem to matter how warm i dress that dang cold finds it's way to my joints and literally sets up residency. It is cold here longer then it is warm from about Oct to April so I spend alot of time indoors and u can only read, bake and watch TV so much. After almost 15 years of this dance I guess I have just learned to surrender to the process and find ways to still feel apart of the world. I was having a very hard time with it this year but did alot inward chatting and now realize it is my journey and what I need to learn will be learned here so I okay with it all. Maybe I am going to invent new underwear for arthritics that heats up and keeps us toasty warm during these bitter cold days. You know a one piece jumper that has a button switch that we can just hit and awwwwwwwww warmth. You just never know what the universe has planned so I guess I just keep laughing with the day and wait and see. You know a one piece it a tough one in the bathroom rush for us girls hope it is a two piece with velcro. Hope u stay toasty warm today..Hopeful56
