Falling frequently, of course, is not great.  Really, you should be checked out by a health professional.  Falling can cause hidden injuries, like some whiplash from the force of the fall.

I see a pain management doctor and have reported this many times to them. I don't want something to affect my hardware because I am not having another back surgery. I am calling the surgeon tomorrow morning if I don't end up in the emergency room. I have discs pressing on my nerve root on both sides of my lower back and I don't want them to herniate. My daughter is a teacher and my mom is having memory loss so, I have limited resources to help my handicap son. I don't know which way to get the help I need and I am not sure what is coming next. I feel totally helpless. I can't even stand up long enough to even shower.

That sounds so painful Kimberly. Back pain is awful. I'm sorry you're going through so much. Maybe the people on this site can lend wisdom and hope.

November has seemed like a long month. I'm sorry you had a rough day Nicole. I have some days like that too. And always grateful when those days are over. Today is a new day!

HUMOR is therapeutic... Humor helps reduce the negative effects of feeling unhealthy, out of control, afraid, or helpless....If you don’t consider yourself a funny person, then its suggested to consider being a humor curator. Collect and share things that make you laugh😊

Happy Thanksgiving!Happy Thanksgiving!

 Thanks My 4evah friend!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Take care!  🍂🍁🍂☮️  ~Allen 🌈🍂🍁🍂

I always hear helpful ideas on this site. I heard some time ago to look beyond the window, and not through it. Also, a dear friend always talked about and planned her future. She said we always have a future somewhere. This is good to remember because the pain of loss seems more intense at holidays. Except that the end of something is the beginning of something new. What is new brings hope!

These are all great MC @mc6844 ! A couple of darkness ones run through my mind. "There is always darkness before the dawn, and this is to make you stronger." and even better, "There is always darkness before dawn. The light is on its way."

 

I also heard an old song at a class this morning - "I Will Survive." It has energy, strength, and a strong sense of conviction (even though the circumstance in the song is a bit different ).

Thank you Marcy for your uplifting sharing. I try to keep hopeful going about my day too. There's so many people having tough times these days. And need a hand or a kind word.

I am decorating an outdoor xmas tree in our back yard with Red clip on Cardinals (12) and white velvet bows  in memory of my hubby ..We do have a small indoor Xmas tree with gold pointsetias and white lights ..I try to make the best of a somber situation because I know this is what he would want me to do...I am a sentimentalist and try to remember better times for all  of us. Thanksgiving will be spent with both my daughter here at home and my granddaughter and her partner will stop by if only to say hello and dishes will be set out for those who want to take part in the celebratiion of thanksgiving...I have purchased presents for all ..some funny some useful ones as I like to give gifts...Even though he is not here in body he is here with us in spirit...Wishing you all a peaceful holiday....

I hear ya, Nicole. But if people, especially older folks don't feel like eating they should check in with the doc. Might be a digestive thing. Plus not eating brings on its own problems. I've read where snacking is fine and often recommended. If it tastes good people will at least eat and get calories.

For me, all the Thanksgiving food on TV and in stores is too much to look at. It reminds me of the sick who weren't able to eat a thing.

Nicole @SpringIsHereSoHappy . I was busy trying to stay dry for a couple of days. I don't know where that continuous wet weather came from, but I didn't like it. I was glad to see the sun and get out to play some tennis today.🎾
