Geez, I’m sorry that you have OA and that you can understand what I’m talking about. You’re right. The pain may be less some days(which is Great)but it never totally goes away. My Mom suffers from OA also.
I’ve had many People with severe RA to talk to through the years since many of our Relatives and some Friends online have or had it. Sadly for us, some are deceasesd now.
I certainly do feel sad for the Diabetics who are suffering with complications also and I hope that they are able to find some enjoyable times in Life.
I seem to find humour in times I least expect, which helps. Like this morning when I was getting a glass of water in the kitchen, I noticed 2 black birds on the garage roof, picking leaves out of the overstuffed gutter and throwing them on the ground.
It occurred to me that these birds were flying happily above and noticed the yukky-looking gutter so they had to come down to start the cleanup for my Hubby, so it would look Better.
I also called my Hubby up and told him the birds were mad at him for not cleaning the gutters. My Hubby got a laugh out of it too and said Yup, he’d better get those gutters cleaned. LOL!
No, it’s not the drugs that I’m taking. I’ve always enjoyed humour. I watch comedy shows often. We’ve always enjoyed our different Pets through the years also. They are Very important for therapy and make us laugh. I also push myself as hard as I can, to accomplish things. Like I know that I’ll be cleaning out that gutter. =)
Sure I’d like to hear how you deal with some of your pain. I pray that your day is going Better Cathy.
