Deep Freeze within a Deep Freeze

1funny47  I’m not going to break into song or grumble about the weather being so unbelievable cold, even though it’s unbelievably cold. There are places in the world right now that are actually too hot – that puts things into perspective. What a big world we live in with people going through completely different things.

I had another deep freeze moment that didn’t involve my coat crackling as I dodged cars flying around in the ice/slush/snow, this deep freeze from a dentist. Any dental work with Fibromyalgia is a pain, literally. So I’m feeling the effects from a deep freeze here in a deep freeze.

So what are my options?
1. Suffer in silence (say that a few times fast).
2. Whine a little then move on.
3. Choose to embrace this double winter wallop with grace.
Is there a 4th options of doing a bit of all 3, I’ll take that one.


In my pained state, I keep thinking, if life gives you lemons, make lemonade. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard this, maybe people wanted me to remember it as truckloads of lemons kept hitting me on the head. I like lemonade, but it can get cloying after awhile, as can platitudes.
While platitudes and clichés can sometimes be inspirational, helpful, even comforting, I hope a steady diet of sunshine and old chestnuts hasn’t made us more susceptible to compliance. Hasn’t left us vulnerable to believing and submitting to corruption, lies, and neglect within our governments and corporations.

Life is hard,
Life is unfair.
Living life in hard mode.
It’s a hard knock life.

I chose to drink a little lemonade, once my lip unfroze (dribbling is so unattractive), then say no, I will not go gently into anything, I will fight on, through the throb and bitter chill.

Of course, all of this might be nonsense induced by pain and the extreme cold weather. What would Doctor Zhivago do?1funny48



Very me

  1. It’s the fibro talking, trust me! And it’s telling the truth, even if you have to glean it out of some of the rest of your words. Who cares if someone else has to work a little harder for a change! Okay, I’ll step off my soapbox before I fall, lol! 🙂


    1. Thank you. 🙂
      Wow, all your teeth, yes, I guess that might work…not sure I’m ready for that yet. 😉
      Thanks so much for dropping by, hope this weekend is treating you kindly. 🙂


  2. “Any dental work with Fibromyalgia is a pain, literally” – Never was a truer word said. I too have this malady, and just having my teeth polished can be so painful they’ve had to numb the whole of my mouth with giant needles. Joy. Pilates and yoga made it much worse for me, whereas cycling has been unbelievably good for it. I prefer cycling so that’s worked out well *laughs*. I like your blog, you have a great angle on the dangle that is life. *smiles*.

    1. I’m sorry to hear that you understand about Fibro, I wish no one understood, if it means they have to experience it. 🙂
      It’s amazing what works for some and doesn’t for others. Pilates just caused me much more pain, but I find yoga (modified) helps…and Tai Chi. As for cycling, well, I just fall a lot – bikes and I don’t get along, so that would cause pain too. lol 😉 But it’s wonderful when we find things that work. 🙂
      Thank you for your kind words and for visiting…nice we found each other in this giant virtual haystack. 🙂
