I was reading this this morning while I tortured my wife with a fresh cup of coffee. She had to take a bone density pill and can't eat or drink for an hour after.

Something tells me your car is beat up and falling apart from abuse just like your body. I can only imagine what Willy and the kids look like.

What unlucky...you're still breathing, still able to stand, still able to do things with the kids, still nagging Willy, so where does the unlucky part come in? Frankly, breaking a bone in the spine and still being mobile is really lucky.

You are just suffering the effects of early onset (like anybody here will believe that part) OFS (old fart syndrome). Suck it up buttercup just think about how unlucky you'll be when you are rotting away in a grave while Willy is making up for lost time with Sports Illustrated swimsuit models and can't even remember your name :sick030:

… and unless you dictated your words to Alexa it looks like you can still type, so you still got that going for you.
Get this, the other might I put some conditioner in my hair, promptly forgot to rinse it out and said many choice words like "WTF" when I got out of the shower and tried to towel dry my hair.
And wasn't there an old song with the lyrics "If I had no bad luck I'd have no luck at all"?
All kidding aside, sorry to hrear about these struggles,

this is why i love you guys.....you made me totally laugh......and robo the idea of willie with his page 3 swim suit model almost made me keel over because all i could say was....god help that poor girl..lol....

jim your story made me laugh too and remember back to when my son was about 5 and in jk...and i was running late for work..i was due in court to deal with an eviction and property damage case.....so were all running around like mad to get the kids dropped off at school.....im just turning into the court house when i get an urgent page from the school.....huge panic i had to turn around..and drive quickly back to the school to deal with whatever was going on but they were in a total panic....i get into the school office and theres my almost unrecognizable son dangling on a seat with a head full of bubbles...which made his head now look like a chia pet.....and all these smart educated people standing around in a panic wondering if he was infectious...hed emptied a load of shampoo on his head.....not rinsed it off (ok i didnt lol) and when it started to rain while he was waiting to go into class up came the bubbles..i had to take him home....reshower him then gallop back to the court with him by the hand.....where my case had been dismissed and the judge reamed me a new AH for wasting his time....then i had to go back to my job and tell my employer his troublesome tenants were going to be around for another month to completely wreck the joint lol..

theres two vertebrae in my mid back broken.....seems the long term dose of steroids im on leave my bones prone to breaks....they will heal up within a couple of weeks..and in fact the pain is already easing off......the drs told me....no more falls.....thats like telling me not to breath....
I think.....Therefore I am.!!!!!

Embarrassing is being near death and the only one keeping this place alive :duh: look alive people, tourists are coming by and seeing Tombstone. They don't even stop by the gift shop because a guy in a black cloak with bony hands and sunken cheeks is manning the store. Geez

I was all set to complain about yesterday...

My dental appointment yesterday ended differently than I expected. I did get a checkup and my teeth cleaned. And I learned that my crown hadn't come off its tooth but the tooth had broken off under it. Goodbye tooth!

But you guys have me beat! I feel like the poet:

Paper-Cut
by Julie Cadwaller Staub

I got a nasty paper-cut
right where my writing callus used to be.
It bled; it hurt; it kept opening back up.

I showed it to my daughters.
They said in unison,
“That’s no big deal Mom.”

I sought out my son.
He just rolled his eyes.

Then I went to you.
You kissed it tenderly.
You told me it would be better soon.
You said to keep a band-aid on it, and not do any dishes––
that I could take some of your morphine if I needed it,
that it looked like I would get by without IV antibiotics.

Me with a paper-cut
You with cancer
It's hard to get any sympathy around here.

Gosh, Helen, are you afraid we'll get bored if you don't do something spectacular every three days or so? Please take good care of yourself.
