Pain, It is a huge part of our lives. We try not to let it interfere with us, but it does anyway. We all have our own ways for dealing with it and those who love us, for they can be worse than the pain and the long list of other “complaints” that we have. I am fortunate, I have been diagnosed with several “REAL” diseases, and open heart bypass surgery.
By fortunate ‘and I think most of you already know” with having these people now treat me different. If I get tired, they suggest I take a nap or “lay down for a while” that use to be part of Bob’s getting lazy or “just get moving, you’ll be fine”
I am left out of long driving trips, as everyone now knows, I cannot make them, Traveling long distances in a car is unbearable to me, hopefully you girls and the other guy, do better at it. I did take the bus to upstate New York to visit my daughter and her family at Fort Drum, My son in law just made Staff Sargent, has 3 tours under his belt and I pray that is all he is going to do. but the bus ride was nice, met a bunch of fun people . Saw a lot of cities and towns on the way, well at least we saw the seedy sections where they put the bus terminals. The conditions are better than on an airplane. Seats are larger and you get to stop and get off multiple times, that is a biggie for me. I need to stretch out and move a little and that eases the pain. It was different and kinda fun way to travel.
