Monday 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:
Are you a "morning person"?

I used to be a morning person who got everything done with a smile on my face and thankful for the new day beginning. Now I am slower, so I get many things done the night before such as prepacking lunches and laying out clothes. I still love the early morning when things are quiet and I can sit with my hot tea and watch the dogs romp around. Now that it is dark when we wake up, I miss the bird song that would begin before the alarm went off.

I used to be a morning person too, but it takes a while for the meds to kick in now. Once they do, I'm at my best until afternoon and then it's downhill from there.

Was always until a few years ago. Now I can't get moving until a couple hours after I get out of bed. It's more that I know that I have to get moving so I don't get stiff and I can't stand looking at a mess. So I do what I can. By 2 pm I'm ready to quit. So the vacuum doesn't get turned on or the mop doesn't get wet. Tomorrow is another day. Seems I say that about an awful lot of things. lol
May the sun shine on you and warm your heart.

   I hate to say it.... I am a morning person. My regular 4hr sleep hurts so badly. I wake so frequently (on good nights 5 - 10 times that I can remember) that by 445-500 I am itching to get out of bed. My hips are usually very hot to the touch and "holy cow" is the best way to describe it. Back..well it is stiff  & throbbing, but no big deal.  I take my meds a.s.a.p. then sit to coffee and watch the news until my alarm tells me it is time for breakfast prep.

   MM, I pre make lunches too. I do them on Sunday nights. I use Hoagie rolls or sub rolls.  Half done with mayo (for first half of week) and half done with butter (second half of week. Butter will preserve better and wont leave them "soggie"). I take left over lettuce, tomato & carrots from making lunches and add in cheese & cucumber then mix it all together. . Have soup and sandwiches for Sunday supper.

yes i am a morning person because i live in a small town and there is nothing happening here at night. i usually am up around 6 or 7 but my best time of day is in the afternoon. by eight or nine...am usually drifting off. i like to sleep ... it is an escape from pain. i actually studied meditational tricks to learn to sleep more. when i was younger i was very hyper and walked around absolutely exhausted. now am doing better with that at least.

the walking around part is what is not happening...have a great deal of pain when walking or when on my foot.
