Dogs are fascinating how they sense pain

My joints hurt from time to time (sometimes more than others, it’s been this way entire life. When I was living in Virginia and Canada they would really hurt a lot when it rained. It’s probably lupus or some auto immune related).

It’s one of the medical problems I don’t talk about much, because I have so many more serious problems. Joint pain I’ve learned to live with, it may be inconvenient but it won’t kill me and when it’s super bad an Advil takes care of it.

My joint pain has always gotten worse when it rains, so lately it’s been a doosy, and Cookie must be sensing it because she won’t stop licking my knee that hurts lol.

Maybe she smells the inflammation?

I quickly looked at my knee to make sure I didn’t have a cut on the skin lol…dog licking skin can lead to worse problems than a sore knee, that’s for sure ❤️👍.

She’s just trying to help in her own way 😍.

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
