Rainy Chilly Day = Pain


It is rainy and chilly today and it is killing me ! See rainy chilly days reek havoc on my body  . I did a post a while back about feeling like I had been beaten up every day and bruised with no see able bruises  and no energy what so ever it even hurt to breath at times. I went and got x rays  to rule out Rheumatoid Arthritis  and Arthritis I also had blood work done . The x rays showed I have inflammation in my joints  the blood work came back my B12 was dangerously low my body just isn't absorbing B 12 or enough of it, we need B12 for our bodies to make new red blood cells, well mine was running with what was left  which wasn't much and not making any new ones so my muscles were basically starving hence the chronic pain ! I am on a high dose of B12 now but the rainy chilly days still take there toll. I will be going back at the end of the month to get my B 12 checked . I have been feeling much better in the good weather we had been having but for today I am hobbling around like an old crow in my jammies and doing what I can !      

                                                    Now on to better things  !     

                Papa’s Harvest Table Work

Papa is slowly getting the harvest table done as he can only do it in the evenings and on weekends.


    I took some photos of him the other evening sanding the old finish off  of the legs on the lathe !


The first photo was on sport setting of my camera then the rest of the photos I put it on a high ISO the camera took the photos so fast it stopped the motion of the lathe better then sport !  Still learning !


  I will be following Papa with my camera here and there as he refurbishes , rebuilds and refinishes this Harvest table !

                          Until next time hope you all have a good day !

I was very interested to hear about your aches and pains...wait that sounded bad. I'm SORRY that you are feeling that way - but since I, too, am feeling pain from my head to my toes - like I've been "rode hard and put away wet", as they say, I wanted to know what you were diagnosed to have. I, too, had blood work done. I tested positive for ANA and RNA, meaning I have a connective tissue disorder. Could be Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, or a number of other autoimmune problems. FINALLY saw the rhematologist (couldn't get in right away - must be a LOT of old people here in AZ - ha ha). He put me on 2 medications, took x-rays of my back, took MORE blood, and basically said that I fall into the category of "indiscernible" or "indistinguishable" connective tissue disorder. Great. I definitely have a problem - something is going on - but they can't determine exactly WHAT or WHICH "disorder" I have. Irregardless - I am in pain. I am tired. I have a rash that comes and goes. Hopefully the medication will work.

Here's hoping us two old broads will feel better soon.

Hey - who ya calling old, right?

Ha ha!

I hope you feel better fast! At least you have the problem diagnosed so you can do something about it. Love seeing the wood turning. My Honey turns, too, and makes some beautiful things. There is just nothing like hand made.

I am so sorry for your pain. This is where Miggy is suppose to snuggle and love on you. If I were closer, I would make you a huge pot of home-made chicken noodle soup and bring it to you. Can't wait to see the table, it is going to be beautiful!

You have a great blog. I enjoyed seeing all your photos. Miggy is adorable.

So sorry you are feeling so poorly. My fibromyalgia kicks up in the winter and the pain can be excruciating. I take B-12 shots because I just can't hold on to mine either. We're in this together. Thinking of you. Loving Miggy.

I love that last pic with the sanding dust just stopped super clear!
Hope you get feeling better and the B12 is working.

I feel so bad that you are in such pain. Once in a while jamma day's are OK, but not every day. I hope you have a sunny day tomorrow. Cheers!!
