Image via Wikipedia This past week has been full of more aches and pains for me, none of which are related to my recent carpal tunnel surgery. I thought this was quite odd until I looked at the calendar and realized that Fall begins on September 23rd.
Seems my body knows when the seasons are about to change.
Now I am not a big fan of Summer heat. Honestly, from June to September I am spending a lot of time indoors with the air-conditioning on to keep me cool. Plus I've stopped traveling in the Summer to avoid heat-related problems associated with my dysautonomia.
All that said, there is something more to Summer than the heat that keeps my aches and pains at bay. Too bad I can't bottle it. I bet I could make a lot of money selling it: Summer Breeze--the seasonal cure for your aches and pains!
All kidding aside, I need to be more careful about paying attention to messages from my body. Cold and damp weather can bring on more pain symptoms and it's frustrating because I simply cannot prevent these weather-related flare-ups. All I can do is compensate with more rest and cut back on activities.
So what about you? Have you noticed any recent changes in your body? Do you think it is due to the upcoming change of seasons? And for my readers South of the equator, I'd like to know if transitioning from Winter to Spring is helping your body feel better.
