I'm so sorry to hear about your arthritis, Zem. At the risk of being
called stupid or
ridiculous, I feel I should urge you to wear a copper bracelet.
Hear me out. In the summer of 1952 when we were on our honeymoon, we had
automobile accident. This was before the days of seatbelts. I had been
crosslegged yoga-fashion and my knees were slammed into the dashboard. They
were badly bruised and swollen but when we got X-rays they were not
doctor who treated me said, you're lucky in a way, but be sure you are
going to have
a bad case of arthritis from this. Well, he was right. In a few years I
hobbling. Then someone encouraged me to wear a copper bracelet. Now,
50 years later I have no arthritic pains. I do have sciatica, but that
comes from a spinal
injury within the last 20 years.
Some doctors laugh at me, but at least two have looked at my hands and
that they show no arthritic deformation. Another doctor has said, just do
need to do. So I am convinced that if I can get around as well as I do at
84 there must
be something to it. So, at least give it a try. It can't hurt, and it is
a lot less expensive
than other treatments. Wear the bracelet all the time - not just
occasionally. I have
passed this on to several others, and they all report good success.
And enjoy all the spring blossoms. My peonies are beginning to open, and
to be especially productive this year.

I agree with you about how well everything is blooming this year. My
arthritis is worse than it has been in years because of this cool
weather. This morning it was in the 50s when I left for work. My whining
aside, I am grateful we have escaped all the storms, we are good with
rainfall, my yard looks better than it has in years, and we are
experiencing a gorgeous weekend. I hope you all have a safe Memorial
