For the past few weeks our weather can’t seem to decide which season it is. Just as we thought spring was really here we got more snow again. Thankfully, it didn’t hit us as hard here in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario as it did in other parts of Canada.
Regardless, for those of us who suffer chronic pain it was a bitter setback. Many people with chronic pain are adversely impacted by the cold and damp. So having had a few days of warn sunshine our bodies were starting to feel a little less painful. Just a touch, but enough to really relish it.
Today the sun is shining, and the sky is blue. The temperature is 5C and a light jacket or heavy sweater is all that’s necessary. (Even if Kevin is wearing the heavy winter jacket he bought here in Canada, back home in Australia where it’s the same temperature but Winter for them!)
Unfortunately the warmer weather doesn’t completely take away the chronic pain, it just alleviates it. It maybe gives us an extra spoon or two to work with. So please remember to be understanding of your friends and family members who suffer with it.
They would love to wake up one morning and no longer be in pain. As that’s extremely unlikely to happen we carry on the best that we can. But oh so thankful that the warmer weather may finally be here to stay for a while!
