Whats in your name? I love my lab Molly!

Jun 29, 2016 7:30 PM

I know not for some of you but I'm just going to try and change the subject briefly and try to take our mind off pain. I'm jus wondering if some of you will share how you come up with your identifying "name" or " signature" . Some are obvious but some are so darn interesting. I love my black lab Molly. She's my girl! My husband bought her for me in the two years I layed flat on my stomach. She learned all her commands just laying there on my bed with me listening to me talk some days and cry some days. Of course, a treat now and then, too. I have a treat jar on my night stand and she can hear me pick up that lid when she's in the back yard...lol. She sits, lays down, rolls over, sits pretty, shakes, gives 5 and of course kisses her mom! I cannot imagine being without her. Oh yeah, my husband either....lol. Thanks to my husband, John.

Well years ago Hardee's (fast food place in SE) gave away "Raisin Men" in their kids meal. There was one that was a huge pair of red ๐Ÿ‘„ lips on these spindly legs with ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ sneakers. My hubby is a trailer... I mean a TALKER!! So as a gag gift I have him the red lips. He took it to work and his buddies started calling him Flappy. ๐Ÿ˜‚ So I am Flappy's Lady. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Jun 30, 2016 12:58 PM

Mine is S for Sam and Crossy is my husbands nickname derived from our surname. Pretty boring really. No imagination. Haha

Jun 30, 2016 6:27 PM

I've been a dancer my whole life. And I'm petite...like my mom who had the nickname "tinydancer" when she was with the Pittsburg ballet.

Jun 30, 2016 8:46 PM

Jun 30, 2016 9:14 PM

Youse not boring, youse painfully beautiful.

Jun 30, 2016 10:52 PM

I am thinking about a new tattoo to remind me there is more to my life than the pain...

Jul 02, 2016 10:34 PM

I'm a massage therapist that knows pain first hand, so i can relate to my clients in pain and do my best to help them with massage or stretches or self care routines to help in between sessions and, not only them but anyone in my life experincing pain.

Jul 02, 2016 10:56 PM

I used to have a blog called Gibber Jabberin where people would send in silly questions and I'd post them. My followers would give Sully answers. I became " Gibber"

Jul 02, 2016 11:22 PM

Hi my name came up for 2 reasons.1.Im from Australia and 2. One of my dogs is called Matilda( and she is a Alaskan Malamute).๐Ÿ˜€

Jul 05, 2016 8:39 PM

Hi luvmylabmolly, I love the fact that your username is named after your dog. Mine is named after my French Bulldog Minnie Moo Moo. She's my baby girl too so I can definitely relate. she's just a big baby who loves to play and cuddle.

Jul 05, 2016 11:17 PM

I love all the stories behind the handles! Mine is kind of self-explanatory but is something unique enough to be "me".

Jul 05, 2016 11:32 PM

I absolutely love Finding Nemo, especially the memory-deficient Dory. I can totally relate to her short term memory loss :D She said "hi, I'm Dory" several times in both movies, and I think it's cute. It's been my Instagram name for years and now I use it regularly!

Jul 06, 2016 1:54 AM

Jul 06, 2016 3:51 AM

Mine is my nickname from school as there were soooooo many Sarah's in my year I became Saz. 814 was the unit number of the air cadets I just to attend when I was in my teenage years and have just Saz814 as a login since I was about 13!!! I could have had Birdy Bonce (bonce is another word for head in the north of England) it's basically Bird Brain! (Which is another nickname I get!) Bird is my Surname!

Dreams because I want to live life on my terms. I bring my dreams to life by going after them as a lion goes after its prey. Life. I want to look back with no regrets so I live my dreams and 29 is the day I was born.

Jul 22, 2016 3:29 PM

Im late to share...LOL... Ever watch Will & Grace???? My sister and I watched it all the time-and still do (we chat while it's on, used to be via IM, now we text LOL)!! Well, one of the characters (Karen) calls Jack her Poodle. Since she heard that, I am her 'Poodle' or 'Poods' for short (much better then her calling me Jill LOL!!!) So I call her my Doodle or Doods cracks my folks (now just my Mom) up!! ๐Ÿ˜„

Jul 22, 2016 4:27 PM

Hi there, new to the community but not to pain. A decade of CMT :(. My name is my stage name as well as Nick name for most of my life and middle name for all of my life lol. So there's your male input for the day. thanks for sharing.

Jul 22, 2016 4:30 PM

btw I have two pooches, Bo and Luke, the Duke Bros lol. Bo was my angel in 2012 when I spent 9 mos that year in the fetal position due to pain. Luke has been my wife's angel since 2014 giving her the much needed love and attention I have not been able to give. Cheers

I am a mom of three and a fire performer, last name Fanucchi

Jul 25, 2016 10:02 AM

Mine is pretty simple my first name "Tary" and the 1st 2 letters of my last name.

Jul 25, 2016 3:54 PM

Mine is simply what I am and that's always in pain... So, I figured it would make more sense to just make it my own and therefore Alwayzinpain was born!!๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ˜Š

Aug 13, 2016 8:53 PM

I got two left feet, and I'm a zebra! Both due to my hyper mobility! I can trip on anything, literally! Hence the two left feet!

Aug 14, 2016 11:23 AM

I am a firefighter/EMT & my firefighter number is 602. Been on the fd for 18 years!

Aug 15, 2016 8:44 PM

My name is Judith and I tend to judge the wrong things and I love watching the TV show Judge Judy!

Aug 16, 2016 2:05 AM

My handle is from me being an EMT and the last 4 digits of an old phone number I had. I loved that phone number because of the last 3 digits being 911. I worked for a 911 ambulance service and loved it, now I'm medically retired and fighting for social security disability.

Aug 16, 2016 2:51 AM

I am MysticMum. I have a bit of natural talent for the mystical. Tarot reading palmistry. I look into all the aspects of every "religion" as we began with one that had everything that grew into many I feel it is right to study all.

Aug 16, 2016 2:57 AM

Your names are all so much more interesting than mine haha I couldn't think of anything so just wrote the first thing that came to mind!

Aug 16, 2016 3:00 AM

New here and first reply to a post ๐Ÿ˜€ hi everyone I tend to use the name silent-fortress for any sites I use. It comes from the last two lines of a savage garden song which was something I identified with a number of years ago. Although not related in anyway, it's also a symbolic name for my fibro/osteo pain xxx

Aug 16, 2016 5:38 AM

Hello, I am new here but wanted to reply because this is a great topic. With the world being so tech driven everyone has a screen name(s). Mine: "Bullman" is the first 4 letters of my last name which has been a nickname since childhood as I have always been 6" taller and 50 lbs heavier than the kids my age and my school friends added the "man" and since a lot of screen names require 6 or more letters I just figured I would use the one I remember the easiest!

Mar 28, 2018 7:33 PM

Mine reflected my life โ€œfightingโ€ against pain. Suppose to be Painwarrior but I guess my typing skills were lacking that day! Lol

Mar 28, 2018 10:19 PM

Mine is just my name. My fibro fog wonโ€™t let me remember much anymore so most days I still know my name. Lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ BTW I also have two black labs. One is mixed with border collie and his name is Buddy. Heโ€™s my baby and on really bad days he just lays in bed with me. The other lab is Max and heโ€™s my baby too...when his daddyโ€™s not home lol, when daddyโ€™s home heโ€™s right with him constantly. Love my fur babies!!โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Š

Mar 28, 2018 11:40 PM

My nick name is Saz and I'm Survivin' hence Sazvivin'

Mar 29, 2018 7:57 AM

I'm an animal lover obviously. I have a cat Katie and dog Molly. I'm totally against dog fighting and puppy mills. Adopt don't shop!

Mar 29, 2018 1:14 PM

Mine is boring lol Kew is my married name and 2012 is the year we got wed!

Mar 29, 2018 5:01 PM

Sanch is what my youngest brother used to call me. He is no longer here, so this is a nice reminder of him. We were very close.
