I hate rain! It doesn't matter how good or bad I feel, rain makes me hurt! Anything longer than a 10 minute daytime rain is going to be a rotten day and anything overnight will be a "I love you" couch day. Just when my scs unit started working right, I had one of my two reps adjust it wrong during my check-up. Now it's raining and I really need it. Luckily the rep that does it right is going to meet with me in two days. Unfortunately it's suppose to rain all week long were I live. Can someone please tell me how old we are suppose to be when we have to stop whining?

I whine when it's to cold, I whine when it's to hot. I whine when it is to damp and I whine when it is to dry. Sometimes my grandmother and I get together and whine together. I am not sure it ever will end, we just enjoy it to much.

It's good to know there are more like me. But that's what this website is all about. By the way, do you write for Dr. Suess?

Honey....you can whine until you suck in your last breath and make sure it's a good one!...lol turn The older you get the more leeway you have for behavior so start acting 'weird' and childish now and by the time you are old and gray everyone will think you're just normal...for you!

And yes, rain is a bad deal for those with pain. I have fibromyalgia and any time the barometer changes the pain goes up. Seems silly but it's very real to those in pain.

It's raining here now and I'm hurting like the dickens. It's the barometric pressure going up and down, unfortunately. You can whine all you want here. We don't mind because we know how it is. I don't know about you, but I feel like crying myself. It's supposed to rain here all week too. I hope your pain is better by now.

I use to laugh smilewinkgrin when people asked me if the pain was worse with the weather changes....I said no!......but then I started to notice that it was...and then last front that came in I could hardly walk that day....so I'm a believer now that it really really does make a big difference.  I'm not laughing now. confused

I don't even have to see the weather channel to know it's going to rain! I might not know for how long, but I know it's coming. Just like old age, it's on it's way. Now as for the gray hair...
