I saw a thread about this recently but I could not find it today .I just finished ad day in the kitchen still in s flarr from two days ago. I was thinking ot talking out loud to my mom. I was debating on taking trasdol on top of my lyrica. I am hurting so badly. As I! Speaking my mom cuts Me off and starts talking bout her pain which if she takes an advil she is fine .for bout the second I forgot she was my mom.. But thankfully I remember and just walked away. See its things like that which keeps me on my tablet coming here. You guys keep me sane. Thanks for listening. Oh and the butternut cake came out great!..lol

I like to think I'm more compassionate because of the pain I suffer.. But in reality I want to throat punch people who whine about a headache or a sprain or bruise.. They have no clue..

Yes. Mominpain. I'm the same way.lol I know they hurt to but there pain goes away with a warm bath. If someone told me a tub on the moon would heal my pain
I would sell everything and everyone I knew to get there.ha..lol lol

Mominpain, I'm not sure if you were here when we had this discussion before, but I actually 👊 my ex sister in the nose. I then told her it doesn't really hurt, it's all in your head. We didn't speak until the day of my mother's funeral and then it was to tell a room full of so called family (I was adopted) to f off in the room next to the church where the food was being served. She had them all snowed. I didn't care. So, I truly understand that feeling. Newfibrogirl, didn't mean to hijack your rant. We all need to vent and rant at some point. I just used to punch a bag(8 boys in the house) something my husband hung in the garage for me. Best gift he ever gave me. I miss him every day. Ok, and done now. Vent over.

No cearea. I think it was your post inwas looking for because I remember seeing it recently. It all fine.hijack away. Bit it does get to me every time someone does this. And today I was just tired and in pain enough to not give damn what they thought.
Do you remember me asking the question about how to deal with my sister throwing her job and working life in my face? Well today I finally said it. I told her to her face" I'm tired of hearing about your damn job ". Well she left and went home soon after that . lol dis not even comment on what I said. Ha..
Oh. Well. Lol

I'm proud of you! Standing up for yourself is the first step. You rest and I'm guessing that you are cooking and getting ready for Thanksgiving. Tell everyone, if they want to eat, they have to help cook. Don't try to do it all yourself. Take care of yourself and hugs.

Thanks cearea , I'm proud of myself too. We actually divided up the remaining task today. So wel see what happens once i ring the dinner bell.

Good. I'm glad you aren't going to try to do it all yourself. Have a great time on Thanksgiving.

Yes Mopar, they don't have a clue. I hate when people tell me it's all in my head. I usually tell them to spend a day in my shoes and then you'll see if it's all in my head. My orthopedic surgeon still tells me that but the last time he said it, I politely said to him, " It appears to me you've never dealt with chronic pain before, so save it for somebody who cares." I don't have time to be bullied for that and I'm not the one.

Most people who don't know. Think that if they have a headache twice a. Year then they have had chronic pain. My sister was all powd faced saying she is hurting because she was wearing thr wrong bra. When I tell you I wanted to slap her in her face with her titty..( sorry) but I did not react when she said it because I knew she was full of crap. And when she told me I jsut looked at her and walked away.
