Pain like this has to stop. My knees, my elbows, my fingertips all feel horrendous. When will it stop? Winter is always the worst.
These are the worst days. Snow may be pretty but the sight isn’t worth the pain afterwards. It’s a constant conflict. I have to get up and move but my knees are in agony. How will this help? How long is this going to continue? When will I be free of pain? Are my twenties meant to be this bad?
I think “January Blues” is very accurate. All I can do is sit down and binge whatever I feel like, everything from films to food is a “fuzzy” comfort. Distraction has always been my greatest trick to forget this pain.
I cannot wait for Spring. It can’t come soon enough. Just let this pain subdue, even if just for a moment.
