My body is like the weather, you can predict it most of the time. You can plan. Take precautions. Change your plans. But some days there is a sudden downfall of rain causing a heaviness in my soul. Cold that makes me so sore I’m numb. A wind that makes my skin sting. Hail that knocks the wind out of my chest.
On those days it is not safe to go out. All I can do is snuggle up in my cosiest clothes with my heating pad. I feel like I’ve been windswept. It’s a shock to the system. It makes it hard to plan. I have to wait because I may still be in the storm.
Sometimes it takes days or weeks for the sun to shine again. But even then, I have to be careful, and take more precautions incase the storm comes again.
