Prepare yourself for whining, dear internets, as I have nobody else I'd rather complain to. You guys get me.
Up here in Calgary, we have interesting weather. This year we've had an extremely mild winter so far, with the exception of the past week. The temperatures were around freezing, until they dropped to about -30C over night. This will (hopefully only) continue until the weekend.
All week I've been in extraordinary amounts of pain.
Ridiculous amounts of pain.
My neck hurts so much, I just want to lay down and cry. My hips have been aching so badly that I don't want to move a muscle, and I can't find a single position where they aren't growling at me. My hands and wrists are so stiff, I can barely type. My jaw is so loose, I can't eat anything without it dislocating, and choking has become a definite hazard. And I have a migraine that's giving me double vision. My left foot also joined in with its own new trick: folding almost in half, lengthwise, in such a way that bones grind together, and my littlest toe ends up nearly under my big toe.
I thought it was all hormone-related, as I was on my period last week, and I'm usually more of a rag-doll at that time of the month. But as soon as I stopped bleeding, the cold snap hit, and I had no recovery time.
I've been sorely tempted to break out my cane in the last couple weeks, but I know that my wrists and shoulders wouldn't be able to take the extra strain, so my cane remains unused.
Thanks for reading, and hopefully this weather will be nicer soon, and we can all feel better...
