      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

Rain & Pain, Etc.

6 posts in this topic

Do your "bones" seem to predict the weather? Is how you feel physically impacted by whether it rains or shines, etc? GP.com recently posted the following article:

So now I'm wondering, do you find that weather affects how you feel physically, in any way, and what you do about it?

Dark cloudy days during the winter certainly affect my mood.

The weather does seem to affect my neck but I find that if I eat healthy, I have less inflammation and feel better.  I always know when I haven't eaten as I should by how my neck feels

That's interesting!

Do you have an old neck injury or does that just happen to be where the weather "gets" you?

@RoseRed135 I had a neck injury in my 30's.  So far, at 66, it is the only place in my body I have arthritis. I feel it with weather change and bad diet.  Never bothers me above 8,000 feet no matter what the weather for some reason
