OK, this thread is a great distraction from our pain. I went over and found the thread Howlyncat mentioned in the Anxiety/Panic forum too. That was a great diversion for me, too. I hope we keep this thread going so we can find reasons to laugh as well. As some of you mentioned, we are mostly all at the point where if we're not laughing we're probably crying b/c the pain is just too much sometimes. Sometimes it's hard to find things to laugh about
, so I appreciate this thread.
Here's my little contribution... You all remember those ads on TV several years ago where the lady presses her little emergency call button and says "I've fallen and I can't get up!" right? Well, when those ads first played I remember my friends and I getting quite a few laughs over the melodramatic way the line was said in the commercial. So I have to say it was probably Karma when my injury first occurred. What did I have to say to the gal at 911? You've got it - "Help! I've fallen and I can't get up!" Same thing has happened more than once since then too, and each time even though the pain is about
a 30 on a 1-10 scale, I do have to laugh at myself a little bit and think maybe I should be in the commercial myself now.
