Then PT this afternoon to undergo more gentle torture to free up this frozen shoulder. I am seeing slow progress and my range of motion has improved a little bit.

Hope you all have a fine day.
I had frozen shoulder so I literally can feel your pain. The best exercise they gave me was to take a broom and hold on to it with the bad arm and then move the broom upwards with the good arm.

It took years though. Even then I couldn't raise my arm without pain. Then my husband said something about a capsule? You have to break the capsule? Things that form. So he would take my arm and force it through the pain and it didn't take long before my arm was back to normal.

Maybe a nurse on here will know what I'm taking about with the capsule--or you can ask about that. I never would have been back to normal if my husband hadn't done that. Had to do it quite a few times and it KILLED but it worked. I hope you get better. Enjoy your doggies.

Just took my doggie out for walkies. It is not terribly cold here (48 d. F) but with the damp drizzling rain . . . it is a piercing wet sort of miserable. I didn't wear a coat when I took the dog out (had on a hoody so pulled the hood over my head) . . . but I am comfy in colder temps than most folks. It is the damp that seems to be the problem for me. And maybe the barometric pressure - doc says it really can affect joints and I believe him!

Hope everyone has a good afternoon.

And Tuborg . . . Florida? hee hee I know you jest.

Nothing like a wet cold - it's much colder than temps much lower but drier. It goes right to the bone.

Well, we went from 3F to 40F and it's downright balmy. I was out moving more snow off my driveway so the sun can melt the rest of it and had to open my jacket.

Ya know - can't believe how the quality of things has gone down hill. I just bought a new mouse pad - my other one was 15 years old and literally falling apart. This new one is like a wet noodle - thin and floppy - no substance at all.

OK, carry on~~

Interesting about weather. I spent several years considering VA, NC, and SC for somewhat warmer winters. I was sure to visit those places in summer to get a feel for the worst, my nemesis– suffocating heat/humidity. As I get older I am finding out that contrary to my relocation inclinations, cool damp/moist weather is wonderful for my lungs and for my ability to walk far. Hot/humid summer slows me down to near immobility, but the cool-moist air enlivens and energizes. I would do well in the PNW. I don't know what I was thinking when I thought of moving South, other than wanting to simply escape Jan. and Feb. and high taxes up here. Heat of any kind is not my friend. So here is good and in summers I will escape north to the Maine coast, leaving my Southern dreams to another lifetime. Meanwhile my sis continues to look South, but now I believe she will do the FLA-winter thing.

You would hate Carolina summers

New to this thread..... I was interested to hear about this because I was always told that as you get older, you like hot weather more. And it ain't happening for me either. I live in Texas and each summer it gets more aggravating. I'll be retiring in about a year and I'm looking at Portland Maine as a possible location. I grew up in Minnesota and I actually miss winter (but now I like seafood more than cold so I'm heading to New England rather than Minnesota).

You might love the shipping small cities Portland (and Brunswick) Maine and also Portsmouth, NH then. I do. New Hampshire is pricey; Portland not too bad. Lots to do, lots of New England charm, near the sea.

I'm the same way, not tolerating the heat, and the older I get the worse it seems to be. The heat in Virginia in August almost knocked me over.

Of course I also don't tolerate the dry cold in the winter. Even with a humidifier going in the house there's just something about the winter air that will dry my sinuses up.

We have to be frugal but we do have a camper and we could go down to Florida if it gets too bad here this winter. I'm not a fan of Florida though. Probably would just sit at the campground and post to the CD forums for something to do!
