Christmas Cards

I have been having a wonderful time starting to make my Christmas Cards. I decided that I would like to make a personal card each for the carers that look after me and the wonderful staff in the office. When I sat down and realised that was another 10 cards that I would have to make I thought I should get cracking. I love making Christmas cards…they are so much fun.

A Realization

Hmm I find this somewhat true. A good laugh is what is needed!


After six years, I have finally figured out why many people don’t like hanging out with RSDers.

Is it because those with RSD can be a little pessimistic or morose at times?


It’s because, with an RSDer in the room, others have no way of winning that old favorite pastime – the all great injury-based pissing contest.

Sore losers.

“What the Hell’s RSD?”

Nice to have a laugh about CRPS…thanks RSDiary!


It’s a question we’ve all been asked – What’s wrong with you?” Unfortunately for folks like me the answer just elicits more inane questions.

“What the hell is RSD?”

Generally, this is the first reaction from everyone, doctors included (though in the case of the latter it’s typically shortly followed by “Wait, where’re you going?”); and, unfortunately, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy isn’t considered a decent enough answer.

At this point, you have four options.

Option One

If you find the querying person to be annoying, irritating or particularly thick, be careful, a straight answer may be more trouble than it’s worth. In this case you may want to go with Option One – change the subject.

If this fails, just walk away; your nerves are aggravated enough as it is, no need to add to it.

Option Two

You may choose to be strictly scientific. Depending on your audience this will have…

Happy Story (about time)

Dom DomI wanted to share my happy dog story.  My gorgeous border collie beagle cross “Domino” is such a beautiful boy he brings me so much joy. Lately he has developed this annoying whining sound to get my attention and it normally works (he is an outside doggy) but I hate the sound.

The other day in one of my pain episodes he was whining and I snapped at him.  “Stop!” in which he immediately did and slunk away.

Today I was sitting at the dining room table and I could hear this asthmatic wheeze .”Hurgh hurgh” I looked up wondering  where it was coming from and realized it was Domino making this sound. He has worked out that the whine annoys me and only wants to please so he has replaced the noise with this constrained wheeze. Hilarious! He makes me love him so much ♡

The only courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next. ~Mignon McLaughlin
