Yes I agree with all of you. December thru March are my worst. I have already used part of my vacation days and all of my sick days as I earn them simply because some days I can hardly move. I felt so bad in January not only with my back, but had foot and shoulder problems, that I ask for my disability packet. I haven't used it yet, but it is still a strong possibly because December is rolling around again all too soon. Jacuzzi baths and moist heat and Vicodin keeps me going. It has been warm here for weeks and I felt great and now it is snowing and in the teens and I am right back where I was months ago. Sometimes I don't know how I keep going, I just do. Not depressed, just a way of life anymore.
