Hi all, I'm steam cleaning our carpets today and don't feel too bad now and know I will pay for it later and I refuse to let that get me down. Here's to thinking positive for one day and saying f@&$ you to the pain. Writing this I know the pain will get me back big time for that comment but for today I will not let the pain win. God Bless, Joe

  • Good for you. I did the same and I raked leaves all afternoon. Yes you pay for it later but sometimes things just need to be done and we need to feel as if we are in control of our lives.

    Hope you are not paying too big a price for your steam cleaning!!

  • Yes, here's to not letting the pain take us down all the bloody time.

    I went to a baby shower yesterday, and was then invited to stay at a friend's house for dinner. The dinner party was not planned and I knew I was gonna pay for it later, running around for most of the day. When my husband picked me up after, I was almost in tears, the pain levels was up there. Still, I had such a lovely time and wouldnt trade it for anything! As soon as I came home I hit bed, and had to take a double dose of Percocet to bring everything down to manageable pain, but it was so worth it!

    Keep rockin!
