I'm back at the Koffee Klatch table again and after talking with a lot of people from the fibro forum and also the chronic pain forum I think we're going to try a slightly different version of the Koffee Klatch. If you find you don't like it then just speak up and we'll adjust it so the majority of members are happy with it.
I think we might be well served by allowing the 'P' word back into our vocabulary. It was fun and funny to eliminate it but at times we need to kick that old Pain around sometimes. Maybe me need a "Sound Off Sunday" or a "Crabby Wednesday"? How about
"Let Loose Tuesday" or "Feelings Friday" or ""Suffering Saturday" or "Moaning Monday".....help!!! Someone please stop me!!???!!...lol
So today we're going to have a chance to share some of our gripes and maybe with a bit of humor on the side?
My gripe is more pain from my own stupidity! Hubby and I love to Geocache but haven't gone in a while. So what do we start out with??? One of the most difficult ones we could have possibly chosen, of course.
We ended up 4 miles back some logging roads and hiked down an embankment in the deep woods searching under stumps, rotting logs and a few misguided frogs found along the way. After almost an hour of playing limbo through the tangled trees and downed logs we headed to the truck dejected. It's rare when we can't find one. THEN we had a revelation and read the directions again. The darn thing was on the other side of the road! and took us about
30 seconds to find. In the mean time I could barely move. Add to that the conditions of the logging road which was washboard and pot holes, all gravel and twisty. See what I mean about
my own stupidity?...
We went back to our trailer since we were camping at the time and after a night's sleep neither of us could move without groaning! What a pair we made!
Would I do it again??? Most likely! I refuse to give up some of the things I love just because of some darn old pain! Like right now...typing is killing me but oh well. I'll be in pain anyway, might as well have some fun.
Anyone else have a "Pain" story with a smile?
If you're going through hell, keep going.
