Dread Locked


No, I'm seriously not talking about THAT kind of dreadlock. I'm talking about being locked in the dread of colder weather approaching. I can feel it in my joints already. I am waking up with burning pain in my spine again from my neck to my tailbone. My hands are starting to feel stiff and various other large joints are affected at random. Fall and Winter are the worst times of the year for me. Already the nights are getting chillier. Not something I am looking forward to.
P.S. I have thought about THOSE dreadlocks on occasion, only so I wouldn't have to painfully wash my hair in the Winter, but not that I would actually do that to my hair!!

Stomach Issues

For almost a year I have been having horrific stomach/abdominal cramping. I don't mean just slight discomfort, I mean doubled over cannot breathe type pains. We suspect it may be acid reflux but really not sure. It affects me at all different times and it doesn't really make much of a difference as to what I have eaten. It seems to happen more if I eat anything with onions and tomato sauce. I have an appointment to see the doctor this weekend. In the meantime I started taking Zantac, so far it isn't working.
