I must agree, this board has been wonderful. At the strangest times, I'm glad to just know you're all out there.
At coffee yesterday, one of my oldest from high school was telling me how I should go to a boot camp class with her and how great it is. Um... yeah. After I reminded her that I probably wasn't in the condition to do that right now, she sighed and said, "Well maybe in a month or two... when that back thing is finally over." I don't complain EVER to my friends, especially in social situations. But, the insensitivity amazes me all the same.
On the other hand, my mother in law is here and she's petting me like a kitten. Seriously petting my shoulder. Yes, I have pain and an upcoming surgery, but as far as I can tell, I haven't lost all my cognitive and physical functioning!!!
Like they say, If it's not one thing, it's your mother (in law!)
I smile at these moments knowing you all have had moments like this. It really, really helps me not feel alone or go crazy!
Everyone have a comfortable night,
