Just wanted to say thank you to you all

This last week you’ve all kept me occupied with talking to me and showing what a real community of strong people we are together who support each other!

We might not have our pain under control but we can try and make the best of it.

I know this is for pain related stuff but I thought every now and then we could have a bit of a silly question just to lighten all our spirits, as a few of you said you liked my question and even turned into a bit of a game of thrones debate and I know it helped me not concentrate on my pain as much or being stuck in here for another 2/3 weeks.

So if you have anything you want to ask or start off the silly light hearted conversation please do!

Thank you everyone x

I've not told many people but I did actually report someone I saw a man in the assessment centre and my mum noticed a man hobbling about my mother felt sorry for him but I noticed that there was just something about the way he was moving I just couldn't put my finger on it but then about 2 days later I was sat in the community garden next to my house and my mum pointed someone out to if recognised someone and low and behold it was him no stick no limp he was almost speed walking!!! and now he's had miracle recovery! sorry but had to do it xx

Good on you. I despise those low live scumbags. Just too lazy to work for a living so they instead steal thereby making it harder for those of us that really need it.

You know what, I just realised what GOT is which you mentioned on the other thread. Stupid me it’s of course Game of Thrones duh. Yes I have seen that but only up to season 6 so far.

That really sends me into a rage when these damn morons decide to fake crap and all of us suffer daily. In the long run I believe in Karma..what goes around comes around. I used to say stuff now in my head I just say Karma!!!

Yes, it annoys me. I'm in the age group of women who have to wait until they're 66 to get state pension. I have another 6 years to work! But am already knacked with arthritis! So have to struggle on and work through pain, depression, etc. I'm off on sick at min with my back as I can hardly walk,

But it scares the hell out of me, the thought that I have to struggle on for another 6 years. I have thought about claiming pip, but have been told unless you are practically bed bound, you won't get it!.

I struggle everyday with pain. Takes me ages In the morning to get out of bed and get ready, I can't get in Bath anymore, so just have showers, can't go walking any more, coz can't walk far, can't even cut my own toe nails!

But have to work another 6 years! It's a joke

No, a bit of banter about other things reminds us all that we are not just about our pain, or weight loss, or our mental health problems, that we do have other interests, and are actually fabulous interesting warriors!!

Since Im really good at the silly stuff....Itsallinthehips….have u ever wondered if horrible hospital food would stick to the walls in a hospital room if u chucked at them?? Just a thought, lol lol.... Ive been in MANY hospitals and haven't done that one yet, lol. Hospital food in the US tastes worse than what airplane food used to taste like. I wonder if patients made the people that cook that crap eat it.. would they???? I think they just feed it to us so we don't stay, ?? lol. Let me/us know if u tried my theory!!!!

😂😂😂 do you know what’s funny my consultant said I can do what I want with my room except paint the walls lol he never said I could cover the walls in food 🤷‍♀️

Reply

Ok... ready aim fire.....who knows.. u could land up making a creation on the wall with the hospital hospital food that could resemble someone famous?? lol.. then u could sell it on ebay.. u would be famous, lol Happy chucking!!
