Living in the cold....

Jan 17, 2016 4:34 AM

Hey everyone!!! 😘
Besides the fact that it's 5am here and my body is killing me, I started to think... The cold can't possible be good for me.

Have any of you made life changing decision to actually move to a warmer city? I'm really considering moving away. I hate the cold and I personally don't think it helps our lovely bones/joints/pain.πŸ’•

Moved from cold Cleveland, OH right across Lake Erie from Canada to Georgia.

Btw, cold and arthritis is bad combination.

I want to move somewhere warmer but don't have the money, boo SSI. I know I hurt more when it's cold, and it's currently -3F out!

Sure wish I could help you get down here. There are better health benefits such as Medicaid, etc. up north, but it is financially difficult for me to live here. However, after seven days of waking up to sunshine, I said hello to the sun and told it that now I understood where it had been hiding all my life.

@Donamel It must be nice to wake up to that sun. Brings me life. Ive been considering making the move to Florida or San Fran :)

Moving to a more hospitable climate sure helps a lot. Just make sure that wherever you choose can handle your medical and financial needs.

I have.. Thought of going to be with my cousin in Florida. It's too freakin hot and humid there. The pain is the same.. I just deal with it. I tend to hybernate like a bear when winter comes.. LOL!!πŸŒ»πŸ™πŸ»

Lived in GA all my life. Use to think I wanted to live where it was cold and snowy. But with OA, fibro, and other pain issues... No way I'm leaving here! Summers can be hot and humid but the AC keeps me comfortable. If I lived in FL, CA, or some other tropic place, it would have to be along the coast so it's have a good breeze. πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸŒΌπŸ’•
