Screw You, Sun! (And Snow!)

Whether it's the blistering heat, humidity, the bone biting cold or the thunderstorms of spring and summer - weather, most often, is not the friend of someone with Fibromyalgia and other chronic pain diseases.

We also have problems with our own body temperature.  It's like our internal thermometer is broken and one minute we feel feverish and the next, teeth chattering cold.  Okay, maybe it's not minute by minute but honestly, it -is- quite close to that much fluctuation, that fast.  And.. it's awful.  Not as awful as the violent pain, IBS, migraines, spastic bladder and other concurrent issues, but still, it's frustrating.

I hope this day finds all of you with tolerable pain, a balmy 75 degrees with blue skies, a breeze and a glass of sweet tea at hand.

Ear Candy - Gary Clark Jr. - "Please Come Home"

When the pain is terrible and I just want to curl up in the recliner and close my eyes, put headphones on and block out the world until medication kicks in and takes the sharp edges off agony, this is one of the songs I most enjoy listening to.  

He's a new name, an incredible, brilliant talent and I hope you enjoy his music as much as I do.
