Hope you are not suffering to much in this cold snap?

I've managed to go to work all week & even experienced very little delays on the train. But yesterday was so cold that I experienced joint pain & could not get warm until late in the evening.

I awake this morning & I am still feeling sore knees & stiff wrist' s, not like yesterday - milder. I've experienced this all week; but it restricts what I can do at home chore wise.

I know it's due to the weather and I am debating, whether to go into work next week. I feel that I have reached my coping level. Unfortunately work will not understand, hence my dilemma. Decisions life is not easy.

Wrap up warm, stay safe

Cold doesn't seem to affect me.But wet/damp does. I went to Norway a while ago and it was

minus 20 but dry cold and I felt fine. Weird how it affects different people with RA differently.


If you still feel like that monday then go sick. Its your body and if it is letting you down then give it a rest. Love sylvia.xx
