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:
Hard to fathom that 2011 is already here.....
Do you have a "New Years Resolution"?

I think mine is one of the oldest in the book...lose weight! I have been having alot of increased leg pain and I am pretty sure it's because of the extra baggage I carry now.

I will save qutting smoking until next year (yeah right..lol) Take care all. Happy New Year!

I have resolved to take better care of myself through pacing well, positive thoughts, eating the way I should be, and making as much time for myself to be comfortable as I do for my family. Hopefully along with that will come some weight loss and lowered depression, but if it doesn't then I hope to feel better about my body. Or maybe I will just stick with a little more sane? turn

Get on an exercise and weight loss program, as usual.
I need to lose 100 lbs according to the doctor.

LOL Jim, love that.

Each day is a fight for me. Not an ordinary fight, but a fight for life. My New Year's resolution is simply for me live life to the fullest, and succeed in all that I can do whilst I not only battle chemotherapy, but also take care of my grandmother with Alheimers.

One of my saddest moments in my life was sitting in the room, waiting for my turn to recieve radiation and next to me is a child, not even 9 years old with no hair. Its clear what they have. Its clear we are in the same battle. It is so sad. No child or adult should have to suffer this. Especially the children. I wish I could take away the pain, side effects, sorror, illnesses from these precious children. I do the fundraisers, in hopes that one day there will be a cure, but not for me, for the children. They are the world, the future of the world.

I just found out today, I will be undergoing another battle, and more than likely will be on medication for my life. It seems that my rare autoimmune disease turned to attack my thyroid and glands. It also was noticed I am in the 1% people who have brain radiation complications. I currently am undergoing much testing to diagnose exactly what it is for the best treatment.

Another resolution, as if that isnt enough, is for me to continue my efforts of support to our soldiers, familes, and vets through the loving memory of my dear friend and his K9 partner that I grew up with. Whenever I see a soldier or vet, I stop and thank them. The vets, being elder, are usually really touched and will talk your ear off. I look at it as they are lonely, they are happy someone is taking the time of the day to show they care, and I listen. Yesterday, I met a vet who served and survived not one, but four tours of duty in 'Nam.
