    Bonnie Raitt says in a song "Laughing and crying, you know, it's the same release" ... and luckily today, that made me laugh. Yesterday, it probably would have made me cry ... yet another thing to add to *you might be fibromyalgic*! Hugs,

    Hello to all. I have been enjoying your message board. You all seem so caring and lovable. The message you just posted Achy is so true and the first time I passed a test with flying colors. This ohhhhh so true. I will have to show my daughter she also has fibromyalia. Thank you all for your advice. Bunny

    Certainly made me laugh! But half the things here, I don't know whether it's fibro or being perimenopausal. Doesn't much matter, the result is the same. Thanks for the chuckle!

    I especially relate to wearing slippers to Texaco and not caring :)
    Here is one I found the other day:
    SIGNS YOU MAY BE SUFFERING FROM DEPRESSION



    * You've got enough Prozac in your purse to tranquilize King Kong.

    * You really lose it whenever someone says, "Good morning."

    * You spend more time in bed than a hooker at a Shriners convention.

    * You keep your house so dark that mushrooms are growing in the carpet.

    * Given a choice, you'd have no preference between sex or a root canal.

    * On a really bad day, you wouldn't come to the door if it was Publishers Clearing House.

    * You list Dr. Kevorkian as a character reference.

    * Alcohol gives you strength and food settles your nerves.

    * Your hands shake so badly that you can brush your teeth without any voluntary movement.

    I needed a chuckle after this day at work and having the shakes because I need so much to go home. I may just make it!

    This should have made me cry, but it made me
    laugh out loud. Whenever I go away, which
    is VERY rare, I need an extra duffle bad for
    heating pad, vitamins, meds, neck pillow and even
    a neck massager. It's awful.

    And the pillows? Only 47? That isn't so bad? LOL

    The depression one is good, too. Unfortunately,
    many on that list applies to me too. However,
    the bed thing is due to extreme exhaustion and the
    dark thing is due to sensitive eyes.

    Thanks for the much-needed laugh.

    Aaaack! Is someone following me??

    Two days ago I stood in front of the soups for 15 minutes at least. I was zombified. I couldnt remember which soup I was supposed to buy and then I forgot totally what I was doing. I really dont know how long I was standing there, but it was quite a while. Finally I realized that it was Spaghettios that I was supposed to buy. (which isnt even by the soup).

    Major DUH!

    I loved the list! Thanks!!
