Hey there Moparmom and anyone needing to vent

Nov 22, 2015 9:04 PM

I'm sorry your are in extra pain from the event that won't be mentioned but I'm glad you were able to forgive. Now here is what I would like for you do. Think about or even write down 10 things that make you smile. Then write down why they make you smile. These are what you need you focus on while you medicate and rest and ride this flare out. Also if you like tea either make or ask someone to get you a pot started. Some.herbal chamomile tea or just plain herbal tea and sip on that. I'll help asuch as I can to help you through this flare. It's already OK because you forgave

Nice idea - I'll give it a shot. I got a slight flare, and I'm hoping everything will be okay from now on.
My dog eating peanut butter, going to Orycon, talks with my roommate, Rob Carlos' zombie Disney princesses series, meeting other people with chronic pain here and at school, my best friend, sleeping in, pain meds, banging on the piano, doodling, and Nutella covered bananas
Thanks for reminding me that there are fun things in existence, I'm already back to stress of project prep.

It's a great idea Newfibrogirl!! I have to say family, my best friend, music, horses, my ferret kissing my cheek, my dogs, my pain family, dancing, doodling, making others laugh, flirting with the young hot guy at pain management and making him blushπŸ€— (I may be old but I'm not dead.. LOL). Getting to be able to sleep, hearing from friends I haven't heard from in a while. Life really is full of blessings and fun. It's just a matter of learning how to work around your pain and not overdoing it when you're able to get out and do what you love!πŸŒ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜Š

Alwayz, I have to say that made me laugh, my Dad always says that and it even cracks up my mom! Every time he was hospitalized I would ask him if it was because he couldn't get enough of all the beautiful nurse's, and his response would be "you bet"!

I put my head into my music last night for a bit and watched some movie's with my kid's and my Aunt, Love Big Hero 6 lol!

Nov 23, 2015 9:53 AM

What a great idea!
Things that me me smile:
The hubs doing his magic mike dance, my puppy, my granddaughter hollering at her dad,getting a hole shot, the smell of burnt rubber and the sound of a top fuel dragster, Freshly baked cookies, holding hands with the hubs, sunshine, fall leaves and watching my husband fish. πŸ’œ

Luvsdragracing , I little similar to that, I love the site of cars burning rubber doing their burnouts! I watch a show called Street Outlaw's with my hubby before bed, Oh and a new one comes on tonight!!! 😁 I just love Farmtruck and Azn! On Dec 5. The family and I are meeting up with our car club to do a cruise and take up donations for Toy's for Tot's. The cost to cruise for each person in the car is a new unwrapped toy, so I will be going shopping on the 3rd for 6 toys, their is only 4 of us going but, one from each family member.

Moparmom that sounds fun and for such a great cause! Our local track is doing an event on Friday. Black Friday burnout. All proceeds go to Toys for Tots. There is a special class that is open to drivers who have a handicap placard registered in their name. I am so excited to race. We have a Monte Carlo with a side mounted v-8 and rear wheel drive 😍 looking to bring home a trophy!

Nov 23, 2015 11:30 AM

That sound's fun! Good luck! Let me know how you do! 😁

Nov 23, 2015 11:25 PM

Things that make me smile.. God,
my husband, my kids, my Grandchildren, my Aunt who raised me so I consider her my mom, baking, decorating cakes, music, hanging out with my best friend, reading and relaxing in the tub. And summer! !!

I would also have to say my pain care specialist and my pain meds and biofreeze because without them I'm not sure where or what I would be like.

Nov 23, 2015 11:32 PM

I want to say a huge Thank you to Alwayszinpain, and Flappyslady81 for always being there for this group and being such a beautiful blessing and rays of sunshine. I'm extremely thankful for everyone in this pain family, but I'm even more thankful for these 2 precious ladies that seem to always give of themselves 110%. Thank you all.

Nov 23, 2015 11:39 PM

Irishgirl, thank you from the bottom of my heart. It's really a wonderful feeling to know that I've touched people's lives. Y'all have sure touched mine. I hope I can always make my pain family members feel better and put a smile on your faces. You've sure been a blessing for me. I can tell you that during our Thanksgiving prayers, after we say Grace, I will be raising a glass to my wonderful pain family and giving thanks to the blessing you all are in my life. {{{{Hugs}}}} πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

Things that make me smile:
Good friends(virtual and close by), my pain family(someone who shall not be named, but they know who they are), laughter, getting a rare cuddle from my niece even if I have to bribe her, laughter, love, hearing the beautiful sound of handbells being rung at church, God, a morning cup of coffee or three, the sunrise.

Nov 27, 2015 5:13 PM

Moparmom- I did it!!!!
Clocked 189.122 in 7.89 πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜΅πŸ˜΅πŸŽπŸŽπŸ†πŸ†πŸ†
And then promptly had a bladder spasm πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

1. God, because because he give me life and color, things to see, feel, taste, and smell, hear that are pleasant. 2. My wife because she has been my best friend and she has stood by my side through all this pain I have been going through. 3. My son because he is kindest young man I know. He is funny and care deeply about family 4. My daughter because she is funny how independent she is while at the same time needing us so much. 5. My pain family because of the support and understanding I get. The purpose I feel when I can offer a kind word. 6. Church, I love the friends there. They are so pure without pretense and very loving. I can truly rely on them. 7. My best friend because he makes me laugh a lot and he really cares about me. He checks up on me almost every day. I have never had a friend like that. 8. Prayer, it makes me feel safe and secure with God. I can always smile after it knowing I feel close to him. 9. My gadgets, I love my gadgets. They are some of my prize possessions and I use them practically all day. They bring me joy because they link me to the outside world. 10. My niece, I call her giggles. She has the prettiest giggle and she does it all the time. She does it despite having a bad case of Diabestes 1. She is very young but inspirational to me. She makes me smile.

This was a very interesting and pleasant task

Looking over the previous post, I too would have to say I am thankful for my pain meds, and biofreeze. That biofreeze is wonderful. Sometimes I think I should just marinate in it. πŸ˜€

Nov 27, 2015 7:11 PM

Way to go!! So proud of you! I knew you could do it! πŸš—πŸ’¨

Nov 27, 2015 11:40 PM

Thanks Moparmom! I still can't believe I did it ☺️

Nov 28, 2015 1:21 PM

I knew you could! πŸ˜‰ now place that trophy proud! 😁
