Good morning. Hoping all is well and it's a good day for you. Well although I can't afford it, and my boss will not be happy, I'm staying home from work today. I haven't been at this place of employment for a year, so I don't have any legal grounds to protect my job, because of an illness, so I only miss when I absolutely have to. I have taken a shortened day, and she's ragging on me to start back to a full day again. A huge snow storm came and the wind chills are extreme and although I haven't been out in it I HURT!! I have CFS so pain is always there, but with high doses of ibuprofen it ususally doesn't keep me from working. (The fatigue is another story, however) I can barely move today. I'm outta bed because it hurts to much to lie, but it's not helping staying upright either. Does weather affect the entensity of pain? Anything help other than ibuprofen? I don't like this. It's no fun having an extra day off if you can't enjoy it How can something so beautiful like snow cause so much havoc?
