Here it is, my latest addition to my ‘CHRONIC ILLNESS JOKE OF THE WEEK’ SERIES, which is a collection of humorous meme’s and a discussion on the issues it highlights on the subject of living with chronic illness and chronic pain.
I also run a Facebook support group ‘HELEN’S FIBROMYALGIA AWARENESS & CHRONIC ILLNESS SUPPORT GROUP’ for people with chronic illness and their loved ones. In it I share a number of jokes or lighthearted meme’s about life with chronic illness and the group is able to identify together, laugh together and acknowledge a united struggle so no one feels alone. So I thought, why not share this with my blog readers too! Hence ‘Chronic Illness Joke of the Week’ series being created.
This week’s joke and chat is all about ‘Heat Therapy’ life, esp using heating pads to help with chronic pain. Have a look at the meme for a giggle and then read the discussion it creates. Feel free to comment on the post at the end and join in the laughs, discussion and sharing your own stories with heat therapy too…
Chronic Illness Joke of the Week: Joke about Heat Therapy using heating pads!
Electric heat pads come with different heat settings, starting lower and working its way up to the hottest setting. Really they should make a new design for chronic pain warriors that start with the normal hottest setting as the lowest setting instead and then have extra super-dooper hot settings for us to heat it up to on the higher settings. How amazing would that be?! Okay, not literally as hot as fire in the pic! 🔥
For over a decade I have used electric heat pads to place on spasms, painful, stiff, aching and inflamed muscles all over my body, as part of suffering from Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Hypermobilty etc. I have gone through soooooooooo many electric heat pads that eventually just overload from such extensive use and stop working. I can’t deny that I have murdered many over the years. So this meme really made me laugh! 😂
My latest electric heat pad broke last week, so I quickly started investigating alternatives. There are so many options online when you search. Many different sizes and also many different shapes as some are made for specific parts of the body and are shaped accordingly.
The prices range as well, some can be very expensive. So if you have read my post all about Second-hand shopping you will know that I’m no stranger to buying second hand items and electric heating pads are no exception. I have successfully got second hand ones off sites such as Ebay, yes just like the others eventually they stop working. Yet the way I look at it though, is at least I drained the last bit of life out of it before it’s first owner just discarded it.
However, this time instead of buying another tradition electric heat pad, I purchased something different. My Sister @libby.artist and fellow chronic pain warrior got a heated throw for herself and one for me too. We both LOVE them – so I am writing a review post all about it that will be out by the end of this week… *stay tuned*
