My New BFF


I used a little fun with my web cam to introduce you to my new BFF - Best Friend Forever..10.99 at CVS and it saved my life during my three weeks of shoulder pains...


It is full of beans or rice or something.. who knows. but 90 seconds in the microwave and instant pain relief for all things strained, sprained or one of the ITIS brothers... My itis is Osteo Arthritis. It hits just about every joint I have. Did i mention the spur on the top of my instep?

This wraps my thumb, my fingers, my knees, lays flat on my fore arm, drapes across or over my shoulder and even around my throat while playing with web cam.

Just so you know it does not help with Hubby type PAINS... KIDDING BOB!

                                                        NOT!!!!

I am going to take a few more days off, maybe a week. Still having problems with shoulder/back/neck and blogging aggravates it... I will be sporadic in posting/commenting and maybe take the whole week off.

When I saw the photos, I first thought "public hanging". My second thought was the old toothache "remedy" in black and white movies. Whatever!! Hope it works for you.

Best,
Bonnie

Oh girl you are the greatest ~ too funny ...and glad you are feeling better !

Cranberry Morning said...

You are such a fashionista, Sandra! LOL glad that rice-filled thingy is giving you some relief. I made a few of those, but in the shape of capes, for Christmas one year and gave them to the men. They are quite amazing! SO glad you found yours! If Bob finds out how much it helps, he might steal it for his own aches and pains.

Mersad said...

Good to know that there is something that can help. Feel better soon Sandra!

Blackberry Lane said...

I love those, too!

Praying you feel better soon.

Montanagirl said...

HaHa! Love your attitude and photos! Hope this gadget does the trick for you!!

Rebecca said...

Funny, I have one of those I use for migraines.

Madi and Mom said...

Morning MS the old gray mare has one of those too!! Today was 3 weeks since TOGM started with her PITT.
Today was the first day she completed her walk w/o any pain.
Moral to this story is TOGM says she believes pains take longer to heal once she became TOGM.
Lots of healing purrs

Molly The Wally said...

Hope it helps and you are better soon. LOL From The Kitchen's comment re public hanging. No worries we see you when we see you. Get well soon. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly

Ginny said...

Aww...I am so so sorry! I hope that soon you can talk to your old new doctor and he will really be able to fix you up...unlike that other jerk! Please keep me posted!!

Linda said...

You are so crazy in a good kind of way!!! I guess that's why you are so loved in Blog Land!! I need to get one of those things!! I know Amber uses hers all the time!

photowannabe said...

Love your sense of humor throughout this whole ordeal.
I'm glad you have found something to relieve the pain.
Take time off and heal. We will definitely be here, I'm here for the long haul.
Actually I have been weening myself off of Blogging and FaceBook.
I just spend too much time there, but I do have my favorites which I WILL NOT give up!!
Take care Friend...

SweetMarie said...

I had something similar, but no longer since the move. I think I will go by one of these at CVS. So glad you posted this!
Do you have Indian in you? You have gorgeous skin and cheek bones!
hugs!

Miss Debbie said...

You make me laugh! So glad you found something that is helping! Pain is no fun! Take care of yourself!

Oh your a hoot.

I had similar with the rice inside the bag and the smell got to me when I heated it.

That was years ago.

I think it was for to sleep so you don't get neck stiffness. Now this day and age all kinds of support pillows.

The smell was horrid when heated.

If it helps you go for it. As we get older we lose our sense of smell they say.

That helps in one way.

Ann said...

Your new BFF is hot :) Seriously though I think I need one of those. Your last picture cracked me up. You were having fun

Deb said...

looks like a good BFF...you are so funny!!! hope you are feeling better...

Susannah said...

At least you still have that spunky attitude! That contraption looks like something I might like to use. I'm thinking about it. I know Bob is being so good to help you out. Take as much time as you need. We want you back but healed. You don't want to aggravate it any more than it is right now. So glad it is getting better. That last picture is the best!!! Silly girl!!!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Sorry to hear that you are still experiencing pain. Hope some more time off will resolve that.

SquirrelQueen said...

Excuse me, I had to get up off the floor after scrolling down to the last photo. LOL!

I'm glad the rice pack is helping. Take it easy and relax, that will help with the healing. We'll be here when you feel better.

Chatty Crone said...

Oh my gosh you are soooo funny! If your are not careful people are going to think Bob hung you! lol

Rose said...

I need to look for one of these!

Sandra, you can make anything fun to read...

George said...

I can't believe that Bob would cause any type of pain that needed relief. But I am glad you found your new BFF -- I may need to see if I can find one around here.

Betsy Adams said...

Bless your heart... Sorry you are still having problems. Prayers for you!!!!

Love your new BFF. it sounds like it will cure most anything.
Hugs,
Betsy

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I just wrote down the info so I can look for one when I'm next at a CVS! Uncle Arthur loves to visit me, too. I will give this a try. Thanks! Now, funny lady, take good care of yourself so you can get back to snapping away!

diane b said...

Great to see you still have a sense of humour even when in pain. So sorry to hear that you are still sore but this gadget looks good. I have a rice sausage that I use when necessary but it doesn't have the fancy handles.

Catherine said...

LOL! You are a funny girl. Hope you get feeling better soon!
Hugs!
xo Catherine

Amy Burzese said...

Keep taking it easy. I'm glad that you shared this. I may have to find one.

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

I'm glad that you have found something to ease the pains. I've had one of those for eons and I love it..because of the weight it will stay in place and not slide off. Take care!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I'm so glad you found a friend who is helping you with your pain! Take care and feel better soon.....

Snapper II said...

scared me for a minuet. Thought you might be at the end "Of your rope"
LOL LOL

Eva Ason said...

Looks like a great and useful thing. The last picture cracked me up though, you're just too funny. Get well soon

Inger said...

Might as well make fun of all the stuff that hits us in our advanced years! You really do a great job of it. And thanks for this info. I think I will get one for my hubby who also has shoulder pains. Take as much time as you need to get well. I know it is hard to stay away from all of your fabulous blogger friends, but still, you have to come first.

Linda said...

Glad that the heat treatment sling thing has helped ease the pain, Sandra.
Hope the time off from sitting at the computer and resting also helps.

Buttons said...

Oh Sandra I just popped over from Ingers blog I am so sorry you are going through this I to have Osteo Arthritis and I have many rice bags but not near as fancy as your new best friend. Take care and cheers to a speedy recovery. Hug B

EG CameraGirl said...

Hey, Sandra. I wish I had known about this a few weeks ago because my husband's used-to-be hospital roommate has terrible problems with his shoulder. Maybe I can get in touch with him to tell him about this!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Sorry to read about your continued pain, Sandra, but you gave all of us lots of smiles showing off your BFF. I have heard of these rice remedies and glad yours is providing some relief. Pat has used the thermal heat packs which are used once and then disposed and they have also helped. Take care of yourself with as much rest as possible and we send our good wishes for feeling better soon.

Maggie M said...

So happy to hear that your new BFF is helping some with that awful pain. Just keep getting better and I hope your BFF will have you feeling fit as a fiddle very soon now. Hugs

LindyLou Mac said...
