what the fuck is it with the damn weather in dc? it's supposed to be spring, yet we're in high 80's and terribly humid and muggy with frequent thunderstorms... i can't believe how badly this is bothering my arthritis - not only am i unable to deal with the pain long enough to work some of the aches out through dancing (i tried last night - thanks dj_solaries for the awesome 80's set) but i'm having a really hard time sleeping because i can't get comfortable and the pain meds and nsaids i'm not allergic to are having less and less of an effect... Collapse ) i'm going to sit here and wimper quietly now

hopefully getting the exercise machine from funkergirl will let me start working out some of the problems without so much pain - it has a rowing machine function which used to be one of the things my physical therapist had me do, and one of the few aerobic exercises that doesn't hurt terribly... i miss being able to sleep without sleeping pills and cocktails, and i really miss being able to do anything without worrying about how much it'll hurt... just walking up the block to pick up lunch took me from an 8.5 to a 10 on the pain scale, and i've had just about all i can take...
