    738 sober
    Got a pain in my head this morning that is moving around my face, skull, eye socket, tooth. Awesome lol. Hoping it’s from the cold snap. Will go and sit under the shower for sometime soon. That’s my daily treat. Long hot showers. As many as I like. Well I’d never have more than two a day lol so that sounded inflated.
    Here are some quotes from a show I watched this week :
    Good people do things for other people. That’s it. The end.
    Hope is everything.
    I still have my downs. But then life throws you these interesting little things, doesn’t it?
    You can’t feel sorry for yourself. You’ve got to keep going.
    A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
    Nothings as good if you don’t share it.
    We”re not just here for us, we’re here for others.

    Some food for thought. I left out the more controversial ones. After Life. Gervais. Cleverly poignant and funny altogether.
    Have a fab weekend you lot.

    • Hey @Ro, I love quotes to think about and maybe change a point of view… Yesterday I read (suits here I think) “Being a healthy woman is not about getting on a scale or measuring your waistline” (Michelle Obama) Mental and physical health is a big gift, I appreciate it since I stopped poisoning myself 🙂

      • Yep a great quote can certainly shed light on situations in life. Nice quote Mrs Obama 🙂

    • Lord, that sounds awful. Hope you have good pills if the shower doesn’t work. Report back xxxxx

      • Just a faceache instead of a headache @morgan haven’t even taken any pills yet. Having a strong coffee which prob won’t help lol

    • Here’s one I read today I really like.
      “To make a difference in someone’s life you don’t have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful or perfect. You just have to care.”

    • I love the quote about planting trees whose shade they will never sit in. Actually, that thought helps me with supporting my kids, because I try to imagine the help now will make them strong enough to handle life for themselves and their own kids (if anyone ever has any, sigh…) Sorry you have a face ache. My son has been here for 10 days and is having headaches which scare him, so I’ve just been in daily headache conversations. His seem to be a combination of allergies and stress. Tension is a huge factor, as I’m sure you know. I just had a good time with him watching the Liverpool/Tottenham game. I’m not a sports fan at all, but I was making an effort to join in his interests. It was fun, except I feel terrible for the losing team, in this case Tottenham. I hope your head feels better. @ro

    • 738 and so much good stuff right here!!!!!

    • Hiya @Ro! I love this: Good people do things for other people. I really liked After Life, lovely show. xo

    • Good Day, @ro. love the saying, A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in. Could say it over and over again. face, skull, eye socket tooth… grinding teeth at night or sinuses or just the way it is today? take care of yourself. be well.
