Picture Me This Photohunt Week 10 "Pointed" and Panic Day

Once again we are happy to be participating in a fun blogging event that was created by our friends over at A Tonk's Tail. It is a weekly photohunt. There is no pressure to participate, just jump in whenever you are able as we are doing this week! You can post on any social media channel that you wish, there is ZERO pressure (which is something WE LOVE!!)

This week the theme is:



Try not to be too jealous when you see the photo below. I passed this stone this past Saturday night (the pain started Friday evening at around 6pm)...........since today is also "Panic Day"............when one knows they are passing a stone they go into "Panic Mode!!" This photo is the PERFECT choice for the word "Pointed."

History of Panic Day
When it comes to holidays, you may think if the ones that are to celebrate fun moments. Panic Day is the day to recognize how stressful life has become and see what can be done to minimize the effects. Stress is dangerous to your health. Stress can bring on illnesses such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.

Some people respond to stress by having feelings of panic which can be very debilitating. Panic can make a person feel that their fear cannot be overcome. While this may not seem rational, the panic takes over and makes it difficult for the once stricken to be able to make rational choices. If you feel that your fears and stress are overwhelming you, Panic Day is the day to make a step forward and reach out to a mental health professional.




That photo above  is the actual stone that I passed. Fun times, right? Had another litho on the left kidney yesterday.......joy oh joy!!!

  4. Oh Caren that is one HUGE "OUCH" if ever there was one! With that point, it must have been pure "heck" passing that thing. Hope the litho broke down any other biggies you had hiding inside!

    Love, Pam

  5. Caren and Cody, every time I see the photo of that stone...ooh, it makes me shiver with fright! We are in a slight panic mode today, because a neighbor's tree cracked in half and is laying across the electric wires, which are pushed down onto our garage in the backyard! No power for almost 24 hours, and who knows when Public Works or utilities are coming along. The Hubby had a freak-out moment...well, rather a couple of them!...and I can only hope we get some power soon. Not to mention, I don't want my garage to burn down! Okay, enough with the panic...

  18. Oh man, that's horrible. Caren, you are a freaking super heroine to be able to deal with that!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Caren, sure hope you are feeling better after passing that stone. Ouch! I'd probably pick kitty ears for pointed. I have panic disorder, and take medication. Before I started doing that in 2000, I was a basket case all the time. I haven't participated in the photo hunters yet. Need to do that. Hugs, Janet and the gang

  20. Oh my gosh, lady! I guess it's better out than in, but OUCH!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. That is a wicked looking piece of torture. Like an arrowhead trying to pierce through your body...all we can say is OUCH. Big ouch.

    Hope those litho procedures help you get rid of them or at least smash em down to little bits with no points...

    Pani? Petcretary is in a panic at her work, which almost always goes away after she clocks out, MOL!!! Our Great Auntie in Canada gets those so bad she ends up in the hospital sometimes. Sheesh. At 97, I guess you can get into some panic modes betimes...we love her anyways...
    and we love you too Caren and Cody!
