LOL if anything needs to be ironed, i basically do the old trick and throw it in the dryer to get out the wrinkles. Only if it is a outfit that needs pressing, would i pull the iron out. Very rarely will i iron.

Same here Sparkey! Only if necessary and usually that would be dressy clothes that I very, very rarely wear anymore. Ever since the shoulder surgery I can't get comfortable dressed. The bra makes me nuts, all of my shirts pull over to the bad arm and I look like my clothes are crooked all the time. Plus with being in PT and it being basically my only out right now, it's been shorts and T-shirts for along time. No need to iron.
TRUCKSTER.....I believe someone wanted BB's underwear ironed. I don't think BB himself wanted it done. At least not while he has them on.

I don't like to iron, but like the way my clothes look & feel if I do iron them (not my undies though).
Cap!....I thought I was the only one who was having clothing problems with my bum shoulder!! Everything twists on me, and doesn't fit right in the chest anymore! It's hard to go clothes shopping & find something that fits or looks decent!

OMG! Lilly........same here. I thought it was me. I hate it. All of my shirts pull to the left (bad side) and I look ridiculous because they are all up against my neck on the right and then my whole left shoulder from neck down is naked. At night I have to sleep in a tank top no matter how cold it is because clothes on it still bother me. I wake up 100 times a night to pull the whole ^&%&(( shirt out from under my armpit on the bad side. Somehow the whole shirt ends up there twisted, turned. Have you ever gotten an answer as to why this is??? I have asked the surgeon and the PM DR. who I'm treating with now along with several PT's and all look at me as if I have 10 heads. I still have a big lump at the base of my neck right where it goes into the curve to my shoulder. I don't think that helps. Have no answers as to what that is either. Funny I aquired it after surgery and the PT yanked my arm. One PT told me it was lymph glands that weren't filtering fluid right NO! The surgeon said it's a large muscle in constant spasm WHAT??? as he was releasing me. LOL No one seems to know what it is, why it appeared and why it won't go down. Thanks for listening hon. Sorry we share this. But glad neither of us are alone in it anymore. I feel like a real slob sometimes. Used to like to put makeup on, a nice shirt. No w I have accepted my 30 pounds and have no energy for makeup, nice clothes. I guess 30 pounds isn't bad going through Meno, steroids out the wazoo, not working in 17 months, and quitting smoking. I am blessed.
God bless you,

I believe when one of us lets our mouth overload our brain the suggestion was for someone to nicely say go Iron Badboys undies it was a nice way of telling us to take a deep breath and cool off

Jayne...and look how nicely it worked. We had drinks and have ads out for window washers.
Alls well that ends well!

I know how you feel- isn't it sad?
I have gained 25 lbs in a year and have just quit smoking, I am sure it will be another 15 soon.
large tank tops and sweatpants work for me at least I am comfortable.
Ran into someone I worked with last year and you could tell by the look on thier face what I looked like.

Monster......I keep trying to shed the "tough girl" image but due to circumstances beyond my control (mostly hormonal LOL) I can't so I give up
Queenee.....I understand totally. For a long time I felt like a piece of cat dung and felt like I looked like it too. Who feels like looking pretty when you feel like this???? Also I was afraid to go out and if i did and ran into someone from work and had makeup on they would really think I was OK. I don't care anymore what anyone thinks of me. I put a little makeup on when and if I feel up to it, the shirts are a real problem, the weight I guess worse things can and have happened to my body. After having a nervous breakdown due to my injuries and the treatment I received from my superviosr and some of my co-workers I just don't give a damn. Sorry Admin and all !!!! Was paranoid for a long time. No more!
Quitting smoking. Did it through a one on one hypnotist. the first 2 months I wanted to kill everyone and made it known. Gained the final 7-8 # within a month. It's been about 14 weeks. BP is normal for the first time in 5 years and so are my EKG's. Well worth it.
Love to all, I try when possible to grab myself by the boot straps, pick myself up and dust myself off and go on. WHY???? God has given me no other choice.

Gads I can remember my last cig.....Bill was in saudi during desert storm...I had just went to Doc and he said if I want to continue breathing without having to carry a "O" tank I better quit......so I went to a bed bath and beyond bought the prettiest bedroom spread and curtains in a pale peach and peach silk sheets......bought me a months worth of nicoderm and went home ..went outside smoked my last said a really heartfelt prayer for help went in took a shower put on a patch and the rest is history....I spent the next week cleaning house and car from top to bottom till not a trace of smoke remained..it was hard but knowing I had to do it to keep breathing and that Bill was gonna get one hellva welcome home.(besides that silly).....I gained 50 lbs and got tatas for the first time(without having to breatfeed to get em)....I am glad I quit but sometimes I feel like I could light up and smoke a 3 ft cig in one breath.
And I still after 16 years get a wanting for one now and then....but never again
and yes Bill was welcomes home real well LOL
