Okay so let's hope that Dani is back doing this soon...or Chutz...
Healing Hugz for both of you...

Today is a quest ..
It;ll be hard, On a bad pain day, something gets you angry, How Long does it take to cool back down...
Does it take 20 minutes, a 1/2 hour, a hour , a few hours or all day...

Okay so for me on a bad day like last night my brother made me mad, cause I can't make it to
Chicago for his newborn baby naming cermony (they are jewish) so it took me a couple of hours to cool down...

part of the reason is by car it's over 1,000 mile trip and I would need someone to watch my kitties,
kitties don't travel as well as dogs.
So how long does it take for ya to cool down????
(Normally for me a few minutes to a few hours to cool down...)
* Asthma, Allergies, Osteoarthritis, Spinal Stenosis, Degenative Disc (Lower Lumbar S1-L3 and Cervical C5,C6, C8 and T1), Fibromyalgia, Gerd,
Enlarged Pituitary Gland, Sjogren's, Ocular Migraines, mild carpel tunnel, ect.... "Would be nice if we could use the edit button in real life"...

Unfortunately on a bad seems to take me FOREVER to cool down! And the longer it takes, the more I hurt! The hard part for me is I take things way to personal.....WAY to personal, even on a good day! I am working on trying not to personalize everything because this has always been a problem for me!

    I hate to even say it out loud... usually about 3 or 5 minutes. The problem is that I can understand someone elses point of view and sympathize with how they feel. I will tell them as much as well. I will repeat what I have been told, in my own words so they know that I am listening. That I do, indeed, understand how they feel. But, it doesnt mean for one moment I will allow someone to emotionally black-mail, belittle, or redicule me either. Just because I sympathize doesnt means I will be part of someone elses anrgy little whirl wind. Besides, when people are angry they say things they really regret. After I tell them I understand, I usually remove or excuse myself. 

    The worst people are the ones going out of their way to find conflict. They will do anything, and I mean anything to lure you into their emotional co-dependancy *shiver* (that would be the 5 mins to cool down.) Those types of people give me the heebie-jeebies. I dont say a word in those instances, just steer clear and avoid. Nothing I say or do with those types of people will help.

And sorry I could not travel both
