Lol...I was talking to a coworker about one of my favorite movies (Donnie Brasco) and instead of saying Johnny Depp, I said Dohnny Jepp…..such an idiot lol

Lol oh boyyyy don’t you just wish you could crawl away at that moment lol funnyyyy thanks for sharing

lol not the highlight of my day

😆

🤣🤣🤣 that’s funny!! He got what he wanted!!!!

You’ll appreciate this. My gal does know about our neighbor’s stupidity, she and I talk about how ignorant this woman is and laugh over the things we would love to say to her. My daughter herself said ‘Give me your phone, Mom, and I’LL tell her how it is!’ 😂

So, earlier today I posted on a Instagram knowing that my daughter will have something intriguing to say, and she didn’t disappoint.

She said ...

‘She’s just jealous because I’m perfect!’

😂

😂😂😂 yessssss go her!!!! Lol such a smart young lady

She cracks me up. The gal has a way with words.

She sure does!!! Loveeeee it!!!

nothing...

Whattttt noooooo there has to be something??!!!!????

wish there was but im afraid nothing has made me smile.

A doctor, a lawyer, a little boy and a priest were out for a Sunday afternoon flight on a small private plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble. In spite of the best efforts of the pilot, the plane started to go down. Finally, the pilot grabbed a parachute and yelled to the passengers that they better jump, and he himself bailed out.

Unfortunately, there were only three parachutes remaining.

The doctor grabbed one and said “I’m a doctor, I save lives, so I must live,” and jumped out.

The lawyer then said, “I’m a lawyer and lawyers are the smartest people in the world. I deserve to live.” He also grabbed a parachute and jumped.

The priest looked at the little boy and said, “My son, I’ve lived a long and full life. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you. Take the last parachute and live in peace.”

The little boy handed the parachute back to the priest and said, “Not to worry Father. The smartest man in the world just took off with my back pack.”

Ha ha ha....good one :) xx

Sorry for your sadness my friend. How well we know that feeling. Don't know about you but Ron White always has a way of lifting my spirits somewhat. Just one of my personal favs. Heck just about any of the Redneck gang of Jeff Foxworthy can make me crack a smile. But I do know how it is if you don't even care, that you simply cannot feel better, and give in to the acceptance that you'll always be that way. You won't. The only way the bottom is permanent is if you make it so. And you will not do that, will you. No of course not, this is just a temporary thing no matter how long it's been going. Hey, we are all here with you, for you. Just keep talking, stay with us and we'll at least distract you with our...alright, MY nonsense. I personally must have music or something on t.v. that distracts me from thinking about how crappy my life and body are. I spend a lot of time talking to myself so that's a distraction right there. The other guy is pretty smart but doesn't know everything. We try to make one another laugh. Or try to prevent him when he begins to destroy everything in a blinding rage. It's like the late great Leon Russell sang,

"I'm up on the tight wire

Flanked by life and the funeral pyre

Putting on a show

For you to see"

Stay on the straight and narrow my friend. We'll be a most appreciative and cheering audience.

😂😂😂 ohhhhh you always got to act surprised when they come lol thanks for sharing awesome

He’s funny!!! I’m guilty too, I always act like I didn’t know there would be food!

He lives by kenster 😊

Really??!!??? That’s so cool

What’s the difference between a snowman and a snow woman, Kenster?

Snowballs!

🤣🤣🤣🤣 good one!!!! I had to read it twice, just having a very slow moment today

What made me laugh today..? Some of the "shares" in my Veterans support group..None of which I can share unfortunately.

But suffice to say, I got a good laugh. Release some endorphins and went to face the day in a better mood.

Amazing!!!! Good for you!!

Thanks. Maybe not amazing but it helps... It's what we are there for.. one another.. Our country has for the most part distanced itself from us and our government won't support us after we've served.. We're like "throw away one time use tools"...Sorry to sound bitter but it is the reality we face as Vets. Not everyone understands what we've been through for the nation. And it seems they don't want to know..

Nope I get the anguish/bitterness. I’m so glad you shared that point! Being aware of what is happening now is crucial

Oh so true.. If "now", you mean the current situation with the world..IMO it's a self serving ruse and distraction by "45" to divert away from impeachment and the fall out...it only takes a look at the past three years and the pattern of misconduct and distraction is there... NO American bodies for his defense! And that is further than this forum allows and I'll respect that.

So if you don’t mind me asking, it’s okay if you don’t want to respond, but the things you have been through for our country how do you cope with knowing someone ppl don’t care?

No I'll reply... For forty years I was outright hostile to the world and most people., not aware of what I was feeling was apart of PTSD and "The Readjustment Blues".

I drank way too much, abused almost every drug "out there. Abused myself and others (significant and otherwise).

Gradually through school (to become a therapist) I began to notice trends and symptoms of trauma, situations and cause and effect. I gradually turned that int helping others both professional and voluntarily. I got involved in the anti -war movement thru to the end of the Vietnam war (did my share of protests and "physical interactions with law enforcement personnel) Then still working and helping I branched out (no pun here ) to environmental activism....

I took the skills I learned "home" and applied them..

Gradually after becoming a parent ( and after several disastrous relationships) I stopped substance abuse and became involved in AA and CoDA groups.. it took a long time to turn around.. But the damage had been done...I'm several times divorced. for the most part estranged with my son and only other family member, mt sister.. I now live high up in the mountains in Southern California... Years of introspection self recrimination and isolation (I can be lonely in a crowd) have mostly been my life.

I have a circle of friends a mutual support group and a "family" of neighbors in our tiny community. That's the short version.... it's much more complex that that.. It continues to be a work in progress and I'm not done yet..

Oh wow, you made me realize even more how much of oneself sacrifices for our country. I genuinely thank you. I can also see the ignorance of people who don’t understand the depth to what a person does to keep us safe here in the US. I knew of the sacrifices of leaving family, I knew of the effects that it can have on family and a veteran, but when you took your time to explain what you shared so far, I get it now more deeply. It’s sad that our country doesn’t treat veterans with the respect that should be given. I can tell that you will continue sharing a must needed story. Your story that you shared with me did not go in vain at all. It gives me more to think about.

Thank you, bless you. The hurt the memories and the residuals don't ever go away.. they lessen and with some become at least tolerable.. I know a 93yr old WWII vet that to this day breaks down when he even comes close to his shares in our group. We who live it can only "relate" our pain, those who choose to live with us can only imagine.. I don't wish the experience on anyone, ever.

That’s so sad. I’m actually sitting here thinking what could I say, but I realize it’s not what should or needs to say just for me to do my part (sadly I am only one person) show continued respect to you and the other veterans. Take the time out to listen.

I also , to this day continue to be conflicted in my feelings and attitude about that (Vietnam ) war, the one's since. The one Trump is trying to get us into is out rageous and unconscionable at best...and technically illegal under the War Powers act Article 18..

As far as people not caring? Somewhere between disgust and rage. I personally hate when I hear "Thank your For Your Service" ..hidden with in that is "You idiot, better you than me"...

Ah ohhhh I said Thank you, but I have not thought the second part at all.

I understand.. no harm no worries.. Thanks for "listening" thank you very much.. If you feel the need to share my rant, please do it may help others..

Actually that was my next question? 😊 I actually work in law enforcement now and we were talking about what is happening now and some of the swat officers I work with are vets. They share smilies stories. Could I share yours??

Yes. I'm glad to share.. No worries. My son is also in Law enforcement as was my dad.. LOL It skipped a generation..I was the rebellious one! ;-)

Thank you!!!!

Absolutely! Any time.. I hope it helps.

I'm not sure what order my replies will show on your end.

My story is not unique. There are some , many much more intense and impact, some not so much.. Some of us also suffer from a side set of symptoms associated with PTSD.. Those who survived behind the lines or in different theaters (Europe and The Mediterranean and Stateside and those like myself who were only briefly touched by the war) Extreme guilt is the big thing there.. but that often goes unnoticed and untreated. Due to the reluctance to talk about it if it's even recognized at all.

Interesting, I didn’t realize guilt was a part of it. Man you have given me such much to talk about this week! It’s going to open a lot of discussions

Why thank you.. I'm by no means an expert in the field. Having lived with and learned about this illness I've be willing to share when and where ever I can. My fellow vets also share their experiences and that adds to my base of reference. PTSD is only recently being understood.. It was formerly referred to as.......

Battle Fatigue, and Shell Shock" among other terms.. PTSD is also being recognized in rape victims, firefighters, police officers, abused people, and so on The 9/11 survivors are a whole knew study group.. Unfortunately the first res ponders and vets are the I think the most numerous groups..and with good reason.

Again feel free to stay in contact.. It helps me to talk about ti and also some comfort in educating people about it.

My late father is a Marine, still to this day. A retired Marine, but he did his time in Korea and the government pretty much used him till he was wounded then spit him out. I understand how you feel only because I grew up knowing my fathers story and how their (DoD) callousness and uncaring ways led to so much of my family's hardships as a young lad. Much thanks to the late Congressman Charles Bennett who interceded on my fathers behalf and made our life so much better as a result. Still, PTSD is not paid off and so goes away. It stays, and it spreads. The family suffers as well as the individual. Sorry to say that how low our government has fallen in contrast to the G.I.'s coming home from WWII. My deepest respect to you sir for your service to our country. If no one else says it, I personally thank you and wish you more than you deserve, whatever it takes to make you a happy man.

I find myself laughing at my own misunderstandings as well. I have no problem laughing at myself with others if I make a faux pas. Not embarassed, just don't care if someone else thinks it's stupid and not funny. Most of the time I amuse myself anyway. One time as I was going down the road I noticed a business sign that read "All Tune And Lube" with the two words on one line and the next. In my mind I thought it read "Anal Tune And Lube" and had to look in the rear view to be sure. I know sometimes when my anal is not in tune sometimes lube can help to move things along. I just did not know they had shops that advertised this service. Good to know. Can't wait to walk in there to make an appointment. Much cheaper than my proctologist.

😂 oh boy that’s funny! Something similar happened like that, when I saw “get it now” at a store in the movie section i thought it was the title of the movie. How it was written I was thinking okay another lame movie out?

That is not a bit surprising but I do know that feeling. My neurons aren't firing as fast as they used to so it takes a bit longer to comprehend. Trying to keep up with abbreviations for words and phrases these days...Urban Dictionary is my friend. I use it to translate English into English...? Anyway, I can follow along, somewhat.

My brother and I grew up watching Monty Python so word play was a skill we both tried to master to make one another laugh. Not too many Americans get the dry humor, the wit, the parody, the satire, all of the fun things MP did with words and humor. We got it and we loved it. Alas my sidekick is no more but I carry on my lonely fight to make others laugh with my lackluster rendition of the remnants I can remember. Or just sound like a crazy old man no one knows what the hell he's talking about. Says he only came here for an argument.

A really funny UK Comedienne - Sarah Milligan!

She is funny!!!! The whole glasses thing 😆😂

Had an awesome fun chat with one of you guys!

Yayyyyyy

What made me laugh today? Seeing the word, “Tiggerbytes.” Good one! 😂

😂😂 yeahhhhhh I even fell out laughing after I was corrected,

Makes me think of Tigger from Winnie the Pooh. “I’m T-I- double G - ur”

Omgggg that is what I thought, after it was told me that is not how you say it, in my mind, I said what the heck this is not a Winnie the Pooh moment.

Yes, technology does tend to adopt names from across the board. Internet browsers use “cookies” to store webpage data.

What are these ‘cookies?’ Do I set the oven to bake them at 350 degrees for 30 minutes?

You never know, maybe someday technology will adopt “cinnamon rolls” into its world of semantics.

Dang this is awaking my sweet tooth! 😉

😂 spot on

Hello UnderstandingMyPain What made me laugh today was my dog moving his bedding then knocking the cover off the fan then backing his ass towards the fan as he is moving the bedding and scraping his ass on the moving fan blade and jumping in the air then giving me his what have I done face lol

😂😂😂 awwww funnnyyyy

For many of us here laughing is just a dream...

I beat Anxiety through Jesus Christ!! For months I was unable to focus I would go to the ER and I would be home bound at times but Jesus delivered me. Call Jesus and cry to him and he will help you! If anyone is interested in any help please message me. I understand some of you might be offended by this and I understand but I am speaking to those who want to hear and who aren’t offended by it. If you are offended then no need to be.

Love this!! Thanks for sharing this openly!!!

I actually thought I made a post 😂 I apologize but hey at least we got the joke out of it!

😆

I was reading FB and saw a friend’s post where she gave a short quiz to both Of her children. Although for the most part, most of the answers were what you expect from kids. However towards the end when she asked her little boy what he wanted to be when he grew up, his response was “a chicken!”...at that, I almost spit out my coffee.

😂😂😂😂 kids really do say anything at times....love it!!!

Hehe. I was getting anxious and worried about something. Then out of the blue, my worries was solved. I was so happy to feel relieved of it. :)

It's funny cause I tell myself. I am so stupid to be worrying so much.

Im glad you were able to get is solved, also never think that your stupid for that!! You did so good, working through it!!! 💜

Thank you. :D
