Well I’m back to lower back pain, hip pain and feet going numb as the barometric pressure has changed drastically in the last twenty-four hours. The semi-truck accident left me with three large screws in my pelvis, arthritis, nerve damage and joint pain. The stainless steel screws in my pelvis do not mix with rain and cold weather it’s like nothing I can describe an aching that will not stop until summer comes again in my hips. Soon it will be time to find my snow pants as I wear them outside on the farm from October to the end of April here in the Pacific Northwest, Washington.
We placed the mattress warmer on tonight oh how I miss summer!
I’m missing the 80 and 90 degree sunny summer we had as I felt the pain was manageable. Pain is a horrible thing it never stops, twenty four-seven it just keeps on and on. I say never give up! I pray GOD helps me find a way to cope as this is going to be another long, wet, damp winter in the Pacific Northwest.
This is our last fall and winter in our home as we are moving to Sequim next spring. The rain fall is dramatically lower in the blue hole of Sequim 12″ of rain compared to Kingston where we have 41″ of rain or more a year. Less rain will be better for my body, our donkey boys, and our horses along with my old dog Jewel she turns ten this year, that’s seventy in people years. Jewel goes outside to do her business and then it’s right next to the fireplace on her bed again.
Please if you have animals that are aging do your best to get them to the vet and get them on an anti-arthritis medicine as this pain is horrific.
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
