But while I used it for a day or so I remember saying to myself....I forgot what it felt like to be normal again. I'm so conditioned to feeling pain daily that I don't even notice it much. I realized how bad I was when I wore that patch. Of course, some days I have flare ups and then I feel it big time. I find that rest helps. I have to schedule days off in between activities. If I go on a vacation, I have to take steroids to sustain activities for the entire vacation. But I can't remain on them so I only do them once or maybe twice a year temporarily. It's definitely a lifestyle change where I have to work within my limitations. We'll talk in more detail onboard. I'm looking forward to it.

We should have a chronic pain support group at the Cove. It always helps me to know how others are coping with the pain, and change in lifestyle. It doesn't matter what the cause of the pain or problem is, when you have to deal with something day after day-it takes a huge toll on you, especially when you may "look" fine to others.....Vicki

WELCOME ABOARD

You will see yourselves listed alphabetically by DIS name on page 1, post 1. The * means you have checked in and are sailing with us. Those with no * are left from the first thread and have not checked in on this thread so we do not know if they are still coming.

You can see from other listings what info some people have shared. That is up to you. If you post it here, I will move it there.

Post 2 is photos of some of us. That too is optional.

Read the info in posts 1 and 2 and then start posting your info and questions here. Someone in this group will know the answer or will help you find it.

HAPPY PLANNING!!
Jan

I should be able to get to some of that tonight as I am finally feeling better after TWO naps!
I haven't made any choices yet... it would be funny if we got the same thing though!!!

I told my parents about this and they called and put a request in and a month or so later received 2 free passes that they used prior to cruising in January. They spent the day prior to the cruise at KSC and really enjoyed it."

I posted this in case I forget to tell you later this weekend....

Thanks sister- I will check into that! What a great tip!

Did you get the tote from our December 3 day, or did we give that to Pam?

So funny you mention that - because I was just thinking about "where on earth did I put that tote"... I found it! It was in my office closet with my "other totes"...

Welcome aboard to the new cruisers.

I just realized dh and I will be on our romantic post-deployment vacation when our time to make advance reservations comes up! I can see it so clearly, I'll be telling him, "GET AWAY FROM ME. I'M TRYING TO BOOK BRUNCH AT PALO!"

On the cruises with three days at sea, do they offer brunch all three days? We've only done one Eastern cruise, and we didn't book brunch for that one.

And I think oldest dd saw me reading the board, and might have guessed we're actually sailing Disney, and not Carnival. I hope not, because I really want to keep them in the dark until we turn into the Disney lot.
