So the weatherman is saying we are in for another week of record cold, and if you haven't already heard, there is a shortage of LP in the northeast. We have turned our thermostat down to 62 to try to conserve on the LP we have in our tank. For most of you, you know the dread I feel for the inevitable week of cold hands and feet and achy joints. Not a happy camper!
This time of year is always hard on me. I seem to get flair-ups in the winter months. I'm not sure if it's the cold or the lack of sunshine, but it always happens. I read somewhere that I should journal my pain, keeping track so when I visit my rheumatologist I can share the information.

Well, here I go again. I've been in Florida since April, I finally got the insurance stuff straightened out and am running low on meds. Now I have to tackle new docs. I'm trying to put together my med history and med list. Googled docs and I'm ready to start calling.
I feel ok, hardly any pain, but my stress levels are back through the roof. My Mother's mind is going and I have to deal with outbursts now.
I'm caretaker now 24/7, but I get an hour or two to myself
