Welcome, Warmer Weather

My severe foot pain has been improving since the last burst of winter weather left us.  I have stopped limping this week, which took away some of my hip pain.  Mild spring days and nights that stay well above freezing temperatures seem to be the best temperatures for my joint pain.  Steady weather with no severe changes are wonderful for chronic pain, at least in my case.  How about you?

I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (hypermobility type) and osteoarthritis, if you haven’t read my blog before.  I ordered my second pair of Birkenstocks this week.  I have a spring pair and winter pair, because I’ll be wearing them most of the time now.  They keep my feet from bending at the MTP joint, where my toe joins my foot.  This is where my pain is severe.

So, I’m thankful for the little things.  But, little things have brought me great pain relief….and great joy :)  I hope today you find joy in the little things, too.

Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Dairy Free Diet

I have been eating semi-dairy-free for years.  I felt like I was doing myself some good by substituting regular cheese and yogurt with dairy-free versions.  I’ve been misleading myself, because I was still cooking with cow’s milk.

cheeseimages

In the meantime, my skin has developed severe problems with eczema.  Nothing works, unless I’m on prednisone.  And, of course, you aren’t going to live on that horrible drug long-term.  Short-term, it makes me feel and my skin look like a million bucks, though!!!  That’s because of all my auto-immune problems are helped from the steroids :)

Image SEO IMG_0822

After talking to friends this weekend who benefit greatly on a total dairy-free diet, I’m going for it!  When I shop tomorrow, I’ll be replacing my butter and milk with dairy-free substitutes.  I’ve been researching blogs and websites for recipes.  I’ve found some wonderful looking recipes online!  I’ll let you know if it helps.
