Oh, my aching, twisted torso!

Saturday, February 02, 2013

I think my birthday a couple weeks ago was in doggie years because I sure feel like it!!
Reading about how some sparkers are cold in their forty or fifty degree weather, or heaven forbid, seventy degrees, makes me want to hop on a plane to St. Thomas to re-visit the beaches, the reef and the S*U*N*!!!!
Still in pain form yesterdays flareup, pain pills knocked me out for six hours in the chair,, too much to do today to take another(half pill). After cleaning, I am going to do some more of Nicole's stretching vids.. I also like the pendulum and squats with the ball.

NO sun again today and more snow,, windy. You need to slather on lotion to exposed body parts, balm to lips and never, ever smile outdoors.. frozen teeth hurt as much as frozen limbs!

    LINDA, I use rice bags for my aches and pains and DH has benefited from them too. I have to make some more because he is using mine and I have given so many away. I used to make them and sell them in my shop.
I make them fairly large and flat so they fit in the microwave. I make them with 100% cotton and food grade rice. Other people use corn or buckwheat I like the weight of the rice and I know there are no allergens in there. I never add lavender as some do I just want the clean heat .
If you want to improvise put some rice in a sock and try it. If you want me to make you one I will sew the cover and you or your DD can fill it. Then you will have to sew across the top. They weigh so much in the mail I do it that way. I can send you the two I make. If neither of you sew I will make and fill just one and check out the mailing-you are worth but I was hoping to make a big one. If you tell me which joints i can make them the right size for you HUGS Pat in Maine. HUGS sorry you are hurting so bad. I have been using an electric blanket when my back was very bad after helping DH with his therapy . They should have arranged a therapist but hid sight is 20 /20 I wish I had wised up. I am sure we did well but it did my back in big time I am ready for pain pills but I also cannot taker them I refuse to pay for ant RX I ask for 2 or three days supply because I know I will likely have to dispose of them HUGS Pat

    I used to always say, 'I would rather be cold than hot because you can always put more on....'
That was up until a couple of years ago and my joints decided that cold is WAY worse!

Be easy on yourself today, don't try to make up for activity that you missed yesterday because of that half pill. (Pills knock me for a loop also)
