I'm cold. Like really, really cold.
But wait... we need the daily meditation.
Just enough guidance to let you know you are never alone.
Okay. God is with me as I try to stay warm.
Honestly, I shouldn't complain. There are thousands of people out there sleeping under bridges, on the stoops of buildings, and in tent cities. But because I live in a house without central heat, I feel like I have a right to complain.
But I'm soooo cold.
Which leads to another problem - My joints. I'm also extremely achy, a new side effect of being in your 40s. First comes wisdom, second comes joint pain. And what is up with this knee pain I have? Ouch to the 10th degree.
I made the mistake of twisting my leg while wearing two inch booted heels on Thanksgiving. My knee has yet to recover. Honestly, I was not doing a whole lot to help it. My latest hopeful fix consists of buying this:
Yes, I'm trying everything. I keep it elevated while sitting (if I can,) I'm wearing a compression sleeve during the day, I take Motrin from time to time, I have yet to give up my heels, but rest assure, I ordered new shoes and they are about to arrive, and I rub Tiger Balm on it.
I'm not icing it like many have suggested. For two reasons - One, there is zero swelling, and two- see my first complaint above.
What do you do for achy bones? Stretched out tendons & ligaments? Would love to hear from you!
