Well for those of you in the dry areas I'll change my prayers so the rain comes towards you! :) I've been doing so well lately it was like a system shocker to all of a sudden get hit so bad with the pain. So I will be happier if the rain goes away for awhile! :)

1 Peter 4:1
Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is done with sin.

Hi, StacyLee. I'm with Lynnwood. Please do get to working on that weather machine. I honestly don't remember the last good rain we received. I live in East TN. We are in a severe drought. Hope your rain will come our way and get you to feeling better! Take care.

I'm in Ohio near (not in) the flooding. WOW!!! some real odd weather . . . drought enough to lose crops and then so much rain it couldn't soak in. Sorry to any of you with flooded basements or other issues.

My rheumy said that rainy weather and barometric changes (I can't remember if high or low is bad) are NOT our friend. He said this really does make us hurt and he sees lots more pain in his patients during these times.

I am like a human barometer and I hurt a lot more when it rains, storms, or is really humid. We are getting a lot of the flooding in Iowa too so I've had some extra pain lately. My rheumy has also said that he sees how the barometric pressure affects his patients.
