Did you move to a drier climate and did it help?
Have any of you with RA, lupus, or fibro moved to a drier climate and did it really help you? My husband and I aren't thrilled at the prospect of moving south and leaving behind friends and family, but I seem to feel so much better in Arizona than I do here in wet Washington. It is already dark and raining here with daytime temps in the 50s and nightime in the 40s and I am not feeling at all well.
Our other dilemma is that my husband doesn't want to retire until he is 70 which would mean another 10 years to endure the cold. I am the one who is diabetic in addition to my other problems, so I am the one who incurs most of the medical expenses that are currently covered so I don't feel like I am in much of a position to object.
I also think that the gargantuan chore of moving is probably easier at 65 or 66 than it is at 70. What has your experience been?
I am going to post this in the retirement forum as well.
