Rain rain go away...come again another day

We've had some thundershowers move through off and on today and as usual this increases my pain level. Both joints are swollen which really sucks. Of course this happens during my period, which raises my pain level anymore. But I keep noticing how different the pain is since my intense depression has gotten so much better. Even when I hurt a lot, I don't feel the need to curl up and hide, or lay in bed and cry. I seem better able to deal with the pain I do feel, and the pain seems lower even without the radio frequency. I expected some improvement, but not this much. I am amazed. I know I keep repeating myself but I just can't help it. Every day it hits me again, specially on days like today when my pain has hovered around a 7 and 8 all day, that I am dealing so much better with the pain.

I've continued doing chores around the house, which is nice. Tomorrow will be a fun day. It is my DS's 14th birthday. Where did 14 years go? Wasn't he just a tiny baby yesterday? He has turned into quite a handsome young man and I am so very proud of him. He wants to go to the roller skating rink for his birthday. So we will probably do that for him.

I did some stitching today, working on that card. It is now over half done. Well that is it for me so far :)

I hope your weekend is going well.

Thank you for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog. For people who are chronically ill and/or in constant pain, it can be difficult to socialize as frequently as we would like to do so. Talking with others online is a way for us to socialize, chat with others, make new friends, reach out to others in similar circumstances and many more positive effects.

Knowing that someone has read my posts and commented on it, helps in many ways. The biggest two being that it helps ease the feeling of being "alone" and that no one could possibly understand. Secondly, it reminds us that others truly do care and that just feels wonderful!!

Thank you very much for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog, it really does mean a great deal to me and is helpful too!
