Friday 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 are your best memories and moments from 2010

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

    WOW ! This one is hard , and easy . For sure having my hip replacement surgery was the best moment of 2010 for me . I had been using  walker/rolator/wheelchair for 1 and 1/2 years after a lifetime of health and had been thru great depression and suicidal thoughts , Iwas in a bad way . Thats when I found HW which helped so very much in demonstrating there were others like me in constant pain , fighting serious health issues . The family here reached out to me and really helped me so much , I've such great , great friends from here .I met a fellow pain sufferer who also had insomnia like me and we would talk all night and keep company so we didn't feel alone . This person lives across the country , I've never met her personally but I a feel incredibly close friendship .I've met folks I call sister and brother and absoloutley feel that way about them in my heart. These two moments and memories of 2010 have made me and my life much fuller and happierand complete . Mikel
HIV+. meds - epzicom, Kaletra . oxycontin as needed , Hip replacement has been a total sucess , I feel blessed and thankful and happy most of the time . Everyone in the CP Forum shares in my sucess , thank you all !!

Dani, What a great post! Our family lists blessings and good things whenever someone feels down.
1. Finding a support group here at HW and meeting many new people, friends, and family.
2. Becoming members in our church and becoming part of a faith family.
3. Getting this PM doctor who is very compassionate, who makes an effort to teach me better ways to live with this pain, finding effective treatments and sticking to them, and truly caring for his patients.
I have many more, but after some careful thought, those are the top 3 for 2010. Here's to 2011 being filled with blessings, joy, happiness, and better quality of life for everyone~

I agree Dani this is a good post:)
So many memories from 2010...some good some not so good.  I would have to say that the one that sticks out in my mind the most was being able to share in my eldest Daughter's Wedding. I must of had many people praying and lifting me up during this time. I was even able to do a little dancing....which I hadn't done in years! She looked so beautiful and after having missed many big events in both my children's lives due to my illness, I was so grateful to be there! Much of my thanks goes to my Dr. for managing my health prior to this event.

Spending time with two people before they shipped out to Afganastan (sp?).

A doctor recognizing my free lance poems that I do for soldiers. She loved the one I wrote in front of her during a test that I named A Civilian Prayer.

Being able to send soldiers who signed up for extra support letters of encouragement even though I don't know them.

My New Years Wish, to bring home all my friends and family that will or is over in the war safe and sound and secure. I do not know how much more burrying I can take, I've already burried 2 family members (KIA same day and we had a double funeral) and 6 friends from this war. I've had 10 people deployed, 8 of them killed in action, 2 are still over there. I'm afraid that I will hear those eerie footsteps again, folding of flags, 21 gun salutes.
Don't Care Bout Nuffin No More, Guess I shouldnt even be in this world
