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:
 
How does the Healing Well support group help you with Chronic Pain?

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

Oh, let's see here... I'm still sane.  There's a big one. 
The healing well community gives me an outlet to vent when no one else is going to understand what I'm going through.
They give me perspective that there are people going through just as much or more than what I deal with each day.
They give me friends when the ones I have had "pre-pain" disappear or become hard to reach.
The healing well community gives me ideas on what to bring up to the Dr at visits.  They give me ideas on what to expect at these visits.
They help to explain what the Dr might have meant when he or she said such and such.
The forum gives me a distraction to go to so I don't just sit and "wallow" in my pain when I can't think of anything else.
They aren't going to get "topic fatigue" or "topic embarrassment" when I talk about symptoms and side effects.
 
I feel like I would have more pain, more stress, more depression, more anxiety, less control, less acceptance of my circumstances, less ability to cope if I did not have my family here at healing well.  I am a better person because you are here.
 
You all even accept my typos and spelling errors at live chats!
