Part-Time Weather Girl

By 9 pm I was in agonizing, 'I see Jesus coming for me,' pain

I had one of the worst nights of my life recently. Leading up to this night was a good, busy day at work with a business lunch and evening meeting during which I managed to pace myself so I didn’t have too much pain. When I walked into my building in the morning I thought to myself, “Ok, you feel good right now, let’s maintain this feeling all day…” I got home in the evening from my meeting and told my boyfriend I would take a quick rest on the sofa before doing anything else—just to conserve energy. On the drive home, I had noticed my right knee was hurting a bit so I didn’t want to push my luck. As I lied on the sofa

and opened mail, I felt pain starting to creep into the other leg. Then the pain started to creep down my leg from my knee to my ankles. Before I knew it, aching and burning pain was taking over my knees, hips, ankles, and lower back. By 9 pm I was in agonizing, 'I see Jesus coming for me,' pain. Even The Real Housewives of Atlanta couldn’t touch this pain (nor could my three pain meds!) 

This was, no doubt, a sign of the weather changes I read about online earlier in the day. It had to be—I felt the same pain over Thanksgiving when we traveled from humid Houston to chilly Austin. I felt it at Christmas in San Diego after their heavy winter rainstorms left and the weather resettled. 

By 2 am on this night from hell, I woke up to a rain lashing against our windows and by 6 am there was news of a cold front that could bring snow!

So when I tell you I’m a part-time weather girl, now you know the truth about my super powers. If only this gig would pay.
