Fibromyalgia and Frigid Weather

Posted Jan 19 2009 8:26pm 1 Comment

Basically… the two don’t mix.  Luckily, with a positive attitude just about anything goes.

Today was incredibly cold here in my hometown.  It was so cold it almost became humorous listening to myself sing myself a pep talk.  “It’s a beautiful morning.  I think I’ll go outside for a while and smile.  Take in some of that [cold,] fresh air and…”  You may laugh… but you know what?  It worked.  By the time I got to work I was in awe of the beautiful snow.  I was refreshed by my walk through the parking lot.  And I was SUPER grateful for the heat in my office (which I normally find to be rather insufficient).  It was a great way to start the day.

The end of the day was a bit less energizing.  Check out how bundled I am… even now, after I’ve been home for 5 hours:

I've got a turtleneck, a turtleneck sweater, and a scarf. Indoors.

G’night fibrofolks.  Take care of yourself and your fibromyalgia during your winter weather.  And remember, there’s no reason it can’t be fun and refreshing.

P.S. I suggest you not choose a day like today to prove to yourself you can walk a long distance.

I hear that, sister!  We've been below zero this month a couple of days, and it's been miserable.  Yay for fleece sheets and thick quilts!
