Hi All,

Just a wish to all of you in the CP group to try to relax and enjoy whatever it is you will be doing over this holiday weekend. Memorial Day has always been a day of reflection and remembrance for those who gave their lives for our country. I believe it is also helpful for us to stop and reflect on where we are in our lives. Yes, we are in chronic pain and other bad stuff. But on the positive side we each have things in our lives that we can be thankful for. Positive things in our lives that others have given their lives so that we can enjoy what we have of ours.

Please, everyone, have a very safe, low pain couple of days to enjoy! Hope the the weather cooperates where you are. If you are lucky enough to have children or grandchildren nearby, make a point of seeing them, or at least calling them. That's what this life is all about. Put the pain on a deep back burner for a while.

Degenerative disc disease, 4 back surgeries, fused from L2-S1, instrumentation. Being treated for chronic pain. Oxycodone 30 mg. IR. Candidate for SCS in the future.

Powerful words, Modelmaker! Thank you so very much for posting this. It really helps ground us when we think of others and the wonderful things we do have in our lives.

I echo what everyone else said. We have to take a personal inventory once in a while and give thanks for our blessings, among them the patriots who gave their lives for our freedom as well.

God bless !

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.
