     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

     But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed... tongue So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
     It has been one of those weeks. You know what I am talking about.. One of THOSE weeks, where nothing goes right, health seems to be making things worse, and you are running around putting out fire after fire!
      So, what is your favorite feel good movie? What is that one movie you watch when it has been a hard week?

Well, I usually don't watch movies more than once, but I like romantic comedies. I like "Finding Nemo." :)

It's so weird that you posted this topic, I was just thinking about it this morning. I thought it would be a fun topic.

I have more than one movie I watch for a pick-me-up. I love most of the recent super hero movies. There is something about people with special powers that makes me feel better. I would love to have a power like some of the x-men, or Superman, or even Spiderman.

My extra special movie guaranteed to lift me up is Armageddon. It was the first movie my husband and I saw together when we were dating. We had a great evening and the movie always reminds me of that time.

I love Shrek....I know such a kid! But my daughter loved it and we used to always watch it together and I still love to watch it! But lately I have watched Never Back Down several times... kind of a kid movie and a fight movie which I used to never have interest in, but the whole never back down....never give up theme is awesome!!

I like to watch, While You Were Sleeping, with Sandra Bullock, or the Wedding Singer or Fifty First Dates with Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler. They are so good together in those movies.

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.

My very favourite movie is Enchanted...the comic/live action movie about a Princess who is banished to New York, and her life there while waiting for her Prince to show up and rescue her. I watch it at least once a week - and it stars Patrick Dempsey and Amy Adams and they play off of each other really well.

Conditions: Fibromyalgia, Severe Myofascial Pain, Chronic Pelvic Pain (with permanent muscle damage), Femoroacetabular Impingement (CAM and Pincer), Reynauds, IBS, Surgical Adhesions, Ophthalmic Migraines, Severe Hot Flashes (both Surgical Menopause and medication related), plus physically unable to vomit due to the Nissen, and I have extremely tiny veins with a lot of scar tissue...a joy when it comes to having to give blood or get an IV started

Surgeries: Appendix, Uterus, Nissen Fundoplication for GERD, Left Ovary, Gallbladder, Right Ovary, TVT

Medications: Oxycontin, Cesamet, Tramacet, Cymbalta, Flexeril and Clonidine plus Laxaday, Vitamin D and a Multi-Vitamin daily

Love watching "Meet Me In St. Louis" with Judy Garland. I think I was born in the wrong era. Pretty much like all the Old Classics:)

I can't often sit through an entire movie but I sometimes like one as 'background music'. Some times when I'm here alone, which is most all of the work week, I pop in an old movie. It has to be something without any violence. Good heavens...I live with a violent body!..lol Why do I need to watch the darn stuff and get nightmares. It also has to have wonderful music and a light atmosphere...no drama!! I know, what kind of movie is that? I love the old musicals! Like Mame, Funny Girl, and The Music Man...anyone remember THAT one? Also things like the Sound of Music...great humor in that one. But most often I prefer documentaries or something educational without commercials!
