Good evening, everyone. I pray that everyone is enjoying a "pain free" day! Our area is experiencing strong thunderstorms, and my body sure can feel it! I never knew just how reliable arthritis was as a weather predictor, until I started suffering with the condition myself. My pain level(s) are "off the chart" today. The humidity severely affects my pain. One of the weather sites that I have downloaded on my desktop has an arthritis index (from the Arthritis Foundation) that tells what "level" is to be experienced for the day. Today's index reads "very high". If anyone is interested, please let me know. I don't want to post the web address, until I read over the rules again. One of the medications I take twice a day is Neurontin, which causes me to be somewhat forgetful. I pray that we can all enjoy a pain free evening!
