WEGO Health Activist Writers Challenge Day 26 (Pain Free Pass, Birthday, AARP!)

 

"What’s a day that you wish you could have used a pain-free pass (either in the future or the past)? How would being pain or worry-free impact that day?"

It's funny I should get this topic today of all days, today is my birthday. It's a number I would rather not speak or hear out loud. When I was at the Rheumatologist the nurse was talking about this number to me, since she will reach it soon. She took my blood pressure, it was sky high! As soon as the conversation went back to normal, it went down! This last month I have been getting flooded with AARP emails, and snail mail. Every site I visit, there is an ad for it, coincidence? I don't think so! They are trying to make me believe I have suddenly entered a club I'm not ready to belong to, I keep waiting for my entire head of hair to turn gray! It feels like I was in high school yesterday, how did this happen? I still go to rock concerts and listen to Kid Rock! I'm not AARP material! 

I think I'm off topic, pain free pass was it? I would like to use it today! I would use it any day. I can't remember the last time I was truly without any pain. Pain is part of my life like going to work is part of yours. I would like to have used it on my wedding day, on every event my kids were involved in, for all of my grandkids events, I can't answer how being pain or worry free would impact that day mainly because I can't remember living without either.

  2. I hope you had an amazing Birthday! I hope you were surrounded by so much love and laughter that any pain you had melted into the background when faced with the warm glow of family. I hope you were happy enough that age became nothing more than an inconsequental number and when you look back, all you'll remember is the happiness without the pain.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
    PS I've been recieving AARP e-mails since I was 36, so those guys OBVIOUSLY don't know wha they'r talking about! *hugs*

    1. Awwwww thank you Chris! I had a wonderful night full of laughter, surrounded by my grandkids, I'm still not a fan of this age that will not be uttered in front of me lol My grandkids sure learned it in a hurry!

      I agree AARP doesn't know what they're talking about! I should tell them to do a better screening process, I don't fit the requirements!

      *hugs*

  3. Happy Birthday Lorna, It sounds as though it's a milestone that we both share and I hate to mention the ad that haunts me in case it starts to come to you (Lumosity). I think for a pain free day you would automatically have more energy, so that would be a huge plus.

    It's a hard thing to fake

    1. Hi Annette, thanks for the birthday wishes! I agree it's a hard thing to fake! I'm not really good at it, although my "public face" doesn't match my at home face most of the time. You know how that goes! Ugh yes I have been getting those ads as well! Do they think we are losing our minds as well now? I will admit to "brain fog" that's all, they can't have me!

      I hope your week is a great one!
