    The past couple of days have been hell. It has seemed for the past few years especially that pressure changes, no matter if the barometric pressure is going up or down, have really affected me. And the past few days has been a roller coaster here in Jacksonville, Florida.
    Yesterday, it was rainy all day but we would get periods of sun. So I was keeping an eye on the pressure and it was going up and down all day. I think today is going to be more of the same by the way it looks. So far it seems that the day is going to be a repeat of yesterday. It is partly cloudy right now, but according to the weather channel, we are going to start having thunderstorms around 1:00 p.m. It is now 2:30 p.m. So I have given Dougie his medication for the coming storm to, hopefully, keep him calm. I feel so bad for him when we get a bad storm and he runs and hides and starts shaking and there is nothing I can do to soothe him and I just feel so bad.
    But it is now about 2:30 p.m. and still no thunderstorm. That is a good thing. I took Dougie out for a walk about an hour ago and it started raining just as I was coming back in. So we are in for the foreseeable future. I checked the weather channel a few minutes ago and they are now saying that the storm should be here about 4:30 p.m. So now we just play the waiting game.
    But that is good for me in a way. It means that I can lie down with Dougie and Smokey for a while. I am going to try some CBD oil in my vape pen and hope that helps. I have applied for a medical marijuana card here in Florida and am just waiting to hear from the state. They say it can take 10 days so all I can do is wait. But when/if I get it I will keep everyone posted on how I am doing and if it is helping.

Welcome to Jim&MS!

As you can see we are extremely new so there is one feature we would like to point out and a couple things we would like to ask of you.

First, if you look in the top right of the page you will see a little man in a circle that opens up a menu with accessibility options for our friends that may have challenges. It will allow you to change things like text size, page contrast and more. If you still have a challenge you can contact me here.

The other thing I would like to ask is a favor. If you can, please click on an ad once in a while. I have about $50 a month in expenses related to this site and don’t make even enough in three months to cover one month off of the ad revenue. I am on a fixed income, I am on disability here in the United States. I am sure most of you will know what that means.

And finally.  WELCOME to Jim & MS!
