Tuesday 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.

How was your Monday?

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

Actually it was good!!! Lowest pain day in a while, even if it did creep up on me late last night. Had fun with my little monsters, and cooked a great dinner, and enjoyed my family =)

I'm packing for a move this saturday, and so I was packing and sorting all day. I stopped at 3:30 to bring all my kids to my oldest child's doctor's appt, stopped at the store for just enough groceries to last to Friday night, since I want to move the least amount of food as I can get away with. I then tried to pack again while trying to get them to fill boxes in their room. It's like pulling teeth. And I can't do it because they all share a room right now, but they are moving into 3 different rooms, so they need to decide who keeps what.
I started the day on a great pain level (like a 2) and as the day went on I would get a twinge here and an ache there, and by the end of the night I took some motrin on top of the daily just to cover the general muscle aches that built up.
Today I would call it a 4 or so, and I'm not so ready to keep active, but the list of things to get done has not gotten shorter. I'm starting to really freak out over the move, so on top of the extra pain meds that I took to (premedicate?) the pain that I anticipate today, I also took an anti-anxiety to keep me from obsessing.
