Hello Flower123! You have gotten several good replies here on your question, and I agree with all of them. I just wanted to say, that I have used Humor as a form of pain relief as well.
My wife and I just watched a movie here a few nights ago, and she said she had never seen me laugh so much since we had met over 5yrs ago. I laughed so hard I cried tears, and boy!...did it feel good!
It was shocking when I realized that it had temporally blocked my pain from my mind. Although it may not be a long term form of relief, it was welcomed for it's short term effect.
One more thing! We have a member here that always makes me laugh, and he has brought me much joy and laughter, during my healing process, although it really did hurt to laugh after my surgery for a while.
I know for a fact, that I mentioned it on one of my post here soon after my surgery, and it made me so mad, I could have strangled him! (just kidding) If you look way down to the south east as far as you can, you may just see him, giving out
Big Sweaty Man Hugs! Yep! It's "Pete Trips Again!
Flower123, I hope you find the relief your looking for, and I think your on the right track for some pain relief.
