Re: Storm Coming

Yeah, I think every state has there "issues", hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes...then, here in Ohio, it's the snow. Sounds innocent enough, right. No, it's not. I went over an embankment of the freeway, a couple years ago, in a white out blizzard. When my car finally came to a stop, my nails were ...

Re: Ouch!

Physical therapy is helping. The pain is still there, but less intense and more manageable. That's good. Have you ever gone to a chiropractor? I swear by them!! You could see one in addition to your physical therapy, if you were interested. Yes, the right chiro at the right time can be kind of mira...

Re: Ouch!

Rachmiel,

How are you doing? ... Hang in there buddy, PB has had some very good tips. Is anything helping to relieve the pain? Are you able to create "the gap" ?

Re: Ouch!

If it were me and the pain kept paining, I think some degree of story would eventually start to seep in: Woe is me — look at how long I have been in pain, will it ever end? Yep, as you know, that's how it typically is, then create the gap..over and over. Just today I had nerve pain intermittently s...

Re: Ouch!

An aside comment to dijmart: I have done 4 bicycle rides of 300 miles in Minnesota to raise money for the MS Society for research and outreach programs for those who have multiple sclerosis. Wow! Cool! That's a lot of miles, for sure. From what you describe it all sounds pretty neat. I've done a fe...

Re: Ouch!

If I remain in the moment, instead of building a story of woe and melodrama around the pain, it all flows better.
Right! You'll have to give yourself a break though, here and there, as a " story" may slip in there, occasionally. Just refocus when that happens or bitch and moan, then refocus.

Re: Ouch!

Hi Rick, Physical pain is quite a bitch! I have M.S. so have had my bouts of excruciating nerve pain. My best advice other then the obvious medical stuff (meds, heat packs, therapy, ect) is to create a mental gap to seperate you from the pain. Meaning, yes, there IS pain, but is it "your" pain? No, ...

Re: A very close call.

Kiki- I wonder if she was on the phone or texting Ahh, good point and probably true! Pb- I haven't snorted any, either, but it sounds like the lady in the caravan has :lol: Lol, snorting AND texting. :lol: Some people feel insecure about working out in public, period. Yeah, I'm not a fan! ...At all!

Re: A very close call.

Cheating injury/death can feel quite exhilarating, I suppose. Must have felt like you'd just snorted a gram. Lol, I don't know about the snorting, since I haven't done that. I'll take your word for it. :) The lady in the caravan (once she came to a stop) looked like she was in shock. She just sat t...

A very close call.

I feel pretty lucky right now. On my way home from work I was almost to a full stop and I heard terrible screaching tires behind me. Before I knew it, a caravan came flying from behind me, to the left side of me and into oncoming traffic, trying to avoid slamming into my car. Time stood absolutely s...

Re: Storm Coming

How did you fair, WW? My family can row a canoe down there street, if they'd like, but since their house and drive way are raised, no flooding in their house.
