Dropping the F-bomb

This post contains language that is not appropriate for children or anyone who is uncomfortable with swearing. For anyone else, I think you may like it.

While there are many times when swearing is inappropriate (especially around little ears), there are definite opportunities where it makes for good expression.

One of those times is when you're trying to describe your pain. I think most of us are well educated when it comes to EDS (if you have it) and can "talk doctor", because we've all gone through years of advocating and fighting for what we need. It's always nice to be able to throw in a little F-bomb as it makes for a really good adjective. Especially because pain is subjective and let's face it, those pain-scales are crap. A lot of us have a really high pain tolerance, but when something hurts it really effing hurts.

The other day I was getting changed after my acupuncture treatment and was feeling fantastic! I bent over and did something to my shoulder/back/neck. It really effing hurts anytime I use my neck or am holding my head up. Same with using my arms...Thinking it's a subluxed rib or vertebrae. Either way, holy fuck does it hurt. I've been incapacitated from pain for the last 3 days. Jerome is still taking his sweet time healing, I can't lay on my stomach, and getting an adjustment with the chiropractor would hurt J even more. This is rather annoying since I've been doing so well. The weather this weekend is absolute crap so I'm not missing out on too much. I was hoping to get a ton of studying done and more organizing. I can't do much of anything...Fak!

This has been a popular saying among the FB bendy community. I say it all time...

Here are some comments I got on it:
-I hope you do feel better tomorrow! :( EDS sucks!

-I am having a crappy pain day too-and you made me smile-so thanks love!

-Feel better soon! We are matching right now! :p Well me with my vista anyway. :(

I spy a neck collar?

-You spied right...had an awesome treatment, got dressed, bent over and now I've
funky neck/traps woot! At least the rest of me feels okay.

-Lots of soft hugs, and I couldn't agree more with the message!

-You really shouldn't be so shy, speak up when something ticks you off.

-Fuck You seems to be your favourite expression. Nothing like a swear word to release some frustration. Keep expressing yourself, Nakki

-My shoulder is dangling out of the socket as I write this. Hope you feel better and get that collar off soon! Hugs

-I hope your shouler goes back where it belongs soon. I love your dedication ♥ Gawd, we sound so effed up...boring is over-rated anyway.

-We call it dedication... others call it mental illness.

- I hav a pretty bad cold mixed with pots...still i Send u a few spoons my dear!

-Tomorrow........... ♥ Your pic sums it up nicely. ♥

-Say it loud! Say it proud!

-keep it coming ! :) That is what I think too!

-my sentiments exactly. love, hugs and nothin' but good Ju Ju coming your way! ♥

Then one of my friends sent this my way:
It made my day :)

I think it's important to be able to have some deliciousness when feeling gross. We go through enough everyday and really, being able to eat something yummy is a right! Or at least it should be. What do you like to eat when you're feeling like ass?

You've got to check this video out, it's brilliant!

"Be who you are, and say how you feel because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."


  1. I don't think I'll ever tire of that video.
    She is so cute and does it so well.

  2. Me either, that's why I posted it. I wanted to share the brilliance...
