I just read this on Psychology of Pain:
13 Things You Don’t Say to People with Chronic Pain
1. You don’t look sick.
2. Maybe if you just got out more.
3. You can learn to live with it.
4. You just have to tough it out.
5. It’s all in your head.
6. You’re just having a bad day.
7. This will pass.
8. Just get more exercise.
9. It can’t be that bad.
10. It must be neat not to work.
11. Just be more positive.
12. It could be worse.
13. There’s people worse off than you .
Yep, I think I’d inflict pain on anyone who said any of these to me.
I got this one the other day from Manly Jack – a friend of his has just had a heart attack and is confined to walking for 5 minutes at a time – the rest he has to REST. Which means far too much time on the internet, which means WAY too many funnies being forwarded to Manly Jack, which means I get more material for Friday funnies!
A new Tesco supermarket has just opened in Tunbridge Wells.
It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of distant thunder and the smell of fresh rain.
When you pass the fresh milk stand, you hear cows mooing and you experience the scent of fresh cut hay.
In the meat department there is the aroma of charcoal grilled steaks and sausages.
In the alcohol department, the clean, crisp smell of hops of the freshly brewed bitter.
When you approach the egg section, you hear hens cluck and cackle, and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying.
The bread department features the tantalizing smell of fresh-baked bread and biscuits.
I don’t buy toilet paper there any more.
…can’t resist the dog funnies this week. Some are oldies, but all are goodies!
Have a great weekend! I’m working on my PhD proposal – oh and marking a few assignments…sigh…
