    Top 10 things that indicate you may have CFIDS


    10 - You find yourself taking 15 minutes to decide which T-shirt you'll wear with which pair of boxer shorts or pajama/sweat pants.

    9 - You become fascinated by the swimming patterns of your pet goldfish.

    8 - The big event of your week is when the shower drain gets stopped-up and the plumbers have to come to fix it.

    6 - You forget how to count down from 10.

    5 - You hug your computer and scream at your pets.

    4 - You are denied disability benefits.

    3 - You begin to notice new and different versions of TV commercials and you critique them.

    2 - "Dressing up" means that you blow-dried and/or combed your hair.

    And the number one way you know you may have CFIDS

    1 - You can't find anything better to do on a weekend night than make up a Top 10 List!

    I can relate to all 10. In fact, number 2, I ma not sure when the last time I even did anything more than a ponytail. Thanks, I needed the laugh and it's good to know its not just me!

    Ponytails are a way of life for me now too. It's just easy.

    #9 is why I own dogs... they harrass you if they're hungry...

    or I'd probably be watching my goldfish for hours without realizing I'd forgotten to feed them days ago...

    sigh...

    I am NOT kidding actually, it is amazing how one's sense of 'time' can be altered by this brain fog!
