Thursday Koffee Klatch
     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...  turn    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.
Daily Question:
What do you forget the most?
Misplace your glasses or loose your keys? Forgetful about refueling your car until the next morning while you are already late to work.....
What do you forget the most?

I forget anything I said I was going to do 5 minutes after saying it.

I can be at the computer for example - and a thought pops into my head (oh, I should go water the plant for example). Without a word of a lie, I can stand up and walk away from the computer and 5 steps in...I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing, because I CAN'T REMEMBER IT!!

This happens over and over - I can't remember words, I can't remember what I just thought of, I can't remember appointments or dates unless they are written down immediately. It's so frustrating and I never know if it's related to the meds I'm on, or if Fibro is the cause, or if there's something else happening.

   The thing I forget most is to be thankful for being able to walk , for having great friends , for having a pretty good life .I'm always worrying about tomorrow and projecting it to be bad instead of good , a really bad habit i'm trying to quit by saying affirmations in the morning every day . Be  thankful for my blessings is what I forget to do . Mikel 
HIV+. meds - epzicom, Kaletra . oxycontin as needed , indothemiacin . hip replacement surgery done !!! Staples out , saw the surgeon he says I'm healing really well , I go back in 2 months . Until then its physical therapy galore !!

   I often forget about myself. I know it sounds strange but hear me out.

     In the mornings I wake early "open the kitchen" baking bread rolls and cinnamon rolls, sausage and cutting oranges, et al. Kitties get fresh food and distilled ice water. Set up the buffet table and make sure everyone rotates in for a good start to their day. Blow dry the girls hair, pack lunches, fill juice and water bottles. Make sure folders are ready to go. Then just before I step out the door to patrol the bus stop my stomach rumbles and I realize I never ate and need to take my apron off.....

     I get back and clean up the house. Start in the girls rooms and work my way through the laundry area, bathrooms, living, kitchen.... then realize that my bedroom is terrible and I need to get cleaned up and freshened up myself (I only have time to do a quickie in the early morning).

    All day long, every day it is the same thing. I forget myself. I forget to take my meds until I am on the verge of vomiting and realizing I am hunched over and needed to have taken them 3hours prior. Every inch of my home is an organized, well oiled machine. Everyone else's closets are clean as a whistle and organized by clothing type. Yet my closet is... just a whirl-wind of skirts galore tossed everywhere. My baby girls nails are immaculate yet my little stubs and callused hands need attention badly. Even my kitties have gorgeous nails...Mending, cleaning, cooking, projects, affection, care. Everything I have to give is for everyone around me. Yet when it comes to myself, I just don't remember until it is beyond obvious and long past due.....  smhair  

    So, I guess what I forget the most is myself  :-)
