Moanin' Ladies.. I say ladies.. 'cause I haven't seen our Gentlemen here lately.. Well, our Craig did post the other day.. Ok, I stand corrected..
Seems as though we have all had a rough go of it lately huh?
CaMama - How is the Mucinex helping? Any better?
Erin - How's the knees babe?
Yalinda - Wow.. guess you're stuck huh? How are you feeling? Any better? You didn't over-do it with your kitchen project did you?
El - Oh boy.. it is rough isn't it? But you're right and your hubby is right.. it really doesn't matter what other people think.. and like Yalinda said, you can help educate people so they know.. When people don't know, they tend to err on the side of caution and a lot of times that leads them to making ignorant decisions/comments.. Hang in there girl.. I know it is going to be a long road, but you'll make it.. I know you will.. and you've got us and a WONDERFUL husband that will keep your chin up, when you feel it fall! You let me know if anyone gives you a hard time, and I will be there for you! I promise! Oh, and the band! How awesome is that? You never told us about this, SHAME ON YOU! LOL... If you get all famous, don't forget us little people! What is the name of your band?
Boo - Uh-oh.. spouses or s/o complaining about issues... you know, at first, when I first started having problems and was un-diagnosed, hubby used to make comments.. not really bad comments, but not really good ones either.. enough to let me know... then I got diagnosed and it was a little better (his understanding) 'cause we could put a name to the issue.. but then, I would still get comments... It hasn't been as bad lately 'cause I think he sees that I do try, but there are days, that I just can't... It is hard for them to understand especially when they don't suffer from anything like we do... they don't see how much driving an hour stiffens our bodies up and it takes a while to loosen back up.. Or how hard gardening can be on our backs and legs, even when we used to do it for hours before... hang in there Boo.. we hear ya, we love ya and we understand...
Me... well, the tree pollen is REALLY bad here right now... my nice Silver Tahoe looks GREEN.... yuck... but it's all over and my allergies are kickin'.. which has triggered a flare... woo-hoo! But I am trudging through it 'cause the weather was nice yesterday, and I wasn't going to let that go... but now, it's cold again, and I hurt... Oh well.. I'll sit under a nice warm blanket today with my puppy and make some nice tea... that should do the trick... I love lazy weekends!
Hope all is well with everyone... Here's to a wonderful, relaxing and "relatively" pain free Saturday!
