Misery loves company...


How come? Why do people that are unhappy want everyone else to be unhappy too?

I have used this cartoon pain scale more times that I can count in the past 5+ weeks going back and forth to different doctors. I bet you didn't know it was called the Wong-Baker Pain Scale, did ya? That's all I have to say about that, just useless trivia for a game of Trivial Pursuit.

I have noticed since my arm has been hurt that some people enjoy telling me how bad it is going to get. For example, tomorrow I am going to have a nerve study done. Everyone that has ever had a nerve study (EMG) or knows of someone that has had one practically relishes in the fact that it is going to be painful. I even got a call today from my case worker today telling me how bad the test was going to be. Yippee! I cannot wait. I am nervous about the test, but more than that, I am just ready to get this over with and an EMG along with last week's MRI should get me one step further down the road to recovery.

To those of you that are reading this right now, if you are happy .. I jump for joy with you! I am happy for you and if you are feeling blue, I am sad for you. I don't want any company on the misery train. So keep off! This train if full. Now go on, be happy!

ps- I have also figured out that after about 15 minutes of typing my arm starts seizing up and hurting, so if I can keep this posting to a minimum of about 5 minutes, I am good and pain free.

Hey momma-
Don't be scared about the test! You'll be fine. And.. if you dare, here is a link to a video with information about it, showing a woman getting one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0uSpYd_Ics
