pain, here it comes again

by tinglyfeeling on December 14, 2009

It is a FACT that whenever you say things are going well–especially if you say it out loud, with witnesses–you’re just setting yourself up for a dramatic reversal. That’s just the way of the universe.

Anyway, I’ve been feeling pretty good, MS-wise, probably due to all this super-friggin’-cold and dry weather we’ve been having in Seattle (might I have found another temperature sweet-spot?). And there’s been so much else going on (work crap, holiday shizz), that I haven’t really had time to think about my MS. And it’s awesome, really, that I can say that.

But today, it’s rainy and 40-ish degrees, and, naturally, I hurt all over. It’s a bone-deep hurt enveloping my whole body. It makes me want to scream. I’m just trying not to walk like Ozzie Osborne (SHARRRUUHN!). But I’m pretty sure it’s just the sudden shift in the weather messing with me and that tomorrow will be better (fingers crossed).

Other than that, I’m fine. How are you doing?

Oh, and here is the really old (circa 1993) song that inspired the title of this post, but has nothing to do with either the weather or MS:

    I've been doing really well since the weather cooled down here starting the first day of fall. Some of the deep fatigue is starting to come back though. The same type of fatigue I felt when I was was still working full-time. I hope its not a preview of coming attractions. My first exacerbation was almost one year ago.

    I hope that your fatigue is just temporary as well. I don't know about you, the the holidays always stress me out and drain my energy. Hopefully, you can recover in January (which is your 1st MS-iversary?).

    This summer was really great for me–the heat didn't bother me as much, or maybe I just didn't let it. I had iffy days for sure, but I find the first day of cold + damp to be much worse because it usually involves pain, fatigue and extra numbness. I could do without the pain. Good thing I live in Seattle, right? Ha!

    I'm so glad you're doing better since moving to Portland. It's an awesome city–I hope living there does awesome things for you. :-)

    I don't know if its the holidays because things have been pretty mellow lately. I hope this passes and that its not a exacerbation/relapse. #MSucks

    The cooler weather definitely has its pluses, but anything above 40 with a good dose of dampness brings on fatigue for me. Could it maybe be that for you, too (assuming you're getting the same wet weather in PDX)? I really hope you don't go through this exacerbation crap again (ever ever ever). You deserve to enjoy your mellow times. xoxo

    That's interesting. I tend to feel pretty good in cooler weather in general, even when it was in the 20s here! Thank you so much!
