Well, I can say this for having a permanent house... It is admittedly very comforting knowing you are under a solid roof when you are laid up in bed sick.
I am home... here in my own solid stone house.
I stagger around but the walls and the solid ground are comforting to someone ailing... It's not a bad thing that got me... It's just a nuisance, however, having the gout flare up on you is never fun.
I can imagine what a comfort it is when one is stricken with an even more debilitating illness.
Stay warm everyone, and stay healthy. (I'm on a light diet to remove the gout on my leg)
