I just got finished sewing a big ole hole in my underwear. Yes, you heard that right! Normally, I would just go out and buy me new ones but since I've been so sick....I can't! And it's not like my husband knows what to get! So now, my poor little, beat up, holey underwear, will last a little longer, lol. I got my moneys worth from this pair. Hell, I think THEY lost money! Haha!

I wouldn't usually write personal stuff like this but since you all know how sick us lymies can get, I knew you could relate, lol.

Anyone brave enough to tell their story? You know you have one! LOL!

I don't have any funny one's yet. I'm sure I will soon enough though! OR I have had some but I can't remember them. LOL I suggest maybe buying new underwear online. LOL Or maybe you can buy funny patches and patch your underwear. Now THAT would be funny. Who knows maybe you'd start a new style :)

I never buy clothes or underwear online because they NEVER fit. I tried it a few times and I was so disgusted with the way they fit. Either they were too small or too big. No in between, lol.

If you would know me personally, you wouldn't think I had sewn underwear, LOL. I used to ALWAYS keep everything up. Now, I look like poo most of the time. I still try my best to look good when I go out though. If and when I do go out.

I guess I have sunk to a new low, lol.

Come on now! You all know you have something embarassing that happened since you've been sick. Or even before you got sick. Don't be skeered!

Let's share stories and have some fun! Help me out here. I mean, LOOK AT WHAT I POSTED! It cannot be as bad as that.

I swear, if you all would know me personally, I would have never thought about sewing underwear. Seriously. I am/was a well put together person. Didn't even go to our local store without makeup so for me to have to do this was pretty shameful BUT you have to look at the funny side of things sometimes. This disease brings us down and takes everything from us.

Who bothers to wear underwear??  I often just wear what I slept in unless I am actually going somewhere.  Maybe later in the day  I will get dressed but this is comfy.  I guess I will brush my hair then too.

Ha, ha!!  Okay, I have a story for you during my days of being sick..   I was driving illegal (the rare times I was able to push myself out of bed and get myself in my car)..   I had such brain fog that I never realized that my state changed the logo on the license plates..  Until a cop pulled me over (I didn't do anything wrong but he noticed my old plates)..  Of course I got tickets..
 
Well, I still didn't have the money to pay the tickets and go to DMV and make everything right so instead I thought to myself what to do?   When I drive I just go around the corner to buy some food.. 
 
So I had this kid's enamel paint kit and in my driveway I whited out the old logo on my plates (I had googled what the new plates were supposed to look like and even printed it out) and then I painted my plates so they looked like the new plates!  Now all is fine and I kept those plates as a reminder of my lymie days!  LOL!

I'd say if you're adept enough to sew on underwear fabric, you're doing okay!  I think if I tried to repair any underwear the slippery fabric would slide all around on my machine and I'd end up with a big bunched up mess. 
 
I don't have any "personal" time/money-saving tidbit to share, but I can't deny that since I've been sick my housework is not always exemplary.  Okay, it was never exemplary, but it used to be acceptable.  Now it is marginal at best.  Someone dropped by recently, and the kitchen was a mess, so before I answered the door I stuffed the dirty dishes into the oven (because the dishwasher was full of clean dishes).   And if I leave my jacket on the kneewall by the front door, and someone comes by, I quickly chuck it on the floor of the coat closet.  And, thank goodness for walk-in closets - in a pinch you can just throw clothes in there and unless someone opens the closet door who would know.  Thanks to Lyme I'm learning a whole new slipshod approach to housekeeping that is ultimately more work but in the moment saves time, or at least, saves face.

LOL!!! 'Mother'
I would have known if I was wearing underwear that day!! Cause I would have had to change them!!!

Don't worry about sewing underwear, CG - I was doing that 10 yrs ago!!! Socks, underwear, t-shirts.

Most of my funny things are only funny to me!! I can sure get a kick out of some of the things I find myself doing, though!!

I really did find it funny the last time I passed out - I landed right into my hubby's work boots & I swear - the very first thought I had was ... Thank God he doesn't have bad foot odor & I like the smell of leather!!!!

Blessed are we who can laugh at ourselves, for we will never cease to be amused!!!

I think that may be my new saying!!!!! cool

Now that's what I'm talking about! You guys made me laugh and we all need a good laugh every once in a while. I'm sure we made visitors on the site laugh as well. It's sad but we do have to do some crazy/weird things when we get sick. We learn to adapt which is pretty awesome.

Thanks everyone for sharing your funnies! And please keep them coming!

P.S.- Denise- Girl you are crazy!! You crack me up!

its great we can find humor in our times of stress and need.

as some of you know i have been down with H1N1. well i had to go to my neuro's on a follow up. and well lets just say i did good to shower, but could not even think to shave my legs.LOL

and what do you think was the first thing he wanted to check, yep my legs. and i cant remember the last time i did shave them. uggg

so he get the pin out to see what feeling i have, and bless him but he didnt even act as if he noticed.

i have also had the days or weeks where it was a job to bruch my hair. and took me over a hour to work the birdnest out of it :(

as for housework whats that. i have nerthor the time nor engery to spare on it. all my family and friends know i'm not able to do it, and if they dont like it they know they are welcomed to pit in. .LOL

Oh RD,
 
So sorry you have H1N1...  Darn, when it rains it pours!  That's funny about your legs..   In some European countries, a women's hair (not head hair) is a turn-on for men or that's what I heard!   I can't imagine not shaving my armpits and legs..   I would love to talk with you, we seem to be on opposite time frames..  darn!
 
CG, yeah, I'm crazy..  My mom could have helped me out at the time but she's the type who loves money more than anything else so I honestly didn't know what to do about my "expired" plates..  Glad everything is on the up and up now!    It's really nice to drive legally, LOL!   Hey, I least I learned I could paint yeah

scaredofswine - I'm near Philly.

Ok i guess this is funny. I live in a Condo - 1 floor and sometimes I lay on my bed and my toddler plays with his toys in my room. Well the other day i was herxing pretty bad and was laying on my bed and my toddler went into the living room and was quiet. Too quiet. I sent my teen in there and he came back laughing really hard. He said he's just sitting on the couch and he has a pen and he's trying to draw on his pants.

So I go in and guess what? My couch is COVERED in pen. I mean there is so much it really covers half my couch. Arms, cushions, I don't have the energy to scrub it. If we could post pictures I would show you just how bad it is. LOL my little artist.

Well, it's not necessarily funny, except to me. Probably pathetic to others. I often go to bed in all my clothes (because I'm too tired to change). And I have been known to climb into bed with 2 muddy dogs and little clods of mud in the sheets....

And guess what? Nothing bad happened!

I work, I take care of my dogs, and I get them out into Mother Nature for fun as often as possible. Mostly, that's all I can do. Look, I HAVE to bathe them if they roll in a dead animal or some kind of God Awful doo doo or rot, but it's SO HARD. So, if it's just a little mud, who cares?

.... btw... I live alone.... (I wonder why)

Oh, and leg shaving?? That ended the summer after I came down w/ Lyme and Babs. I don't think I can convince anyone that my ziggy zaggly purple feet and ankles are tatoos. They are an abomination to Mankind and will never again see the Light of Day. I now wear long, hippy skirts (I'm 56) and often pull them down longer to hide my lower ankles.

Furthermore, along w/ the road map veins, I have red spots all over my legs. When I went to the Dr, I lifted my skirt to show him, saying, 'you see why I don't bother shaving my legs. No one, NO ONE must EVER see them.' (dang, I used to be a sunbather)

Jenn and Lyme,

LOL!!!!! Jenn, OMG is all I can say! I don't know if I'd laugh or cry, lol. I know what you mean about being too fatigued to do anything. Been there, done that! I bet your baby was having the time of his life, lol. What did he do when you walked in?

Lyme: I sooooooo hear you! I have animals too. Two dogs and a cat inside and a stray cat outside. Plus a dog that thinks he lives here, lol. He comes around everyday and sits in our yard. Barks at people that drive up even. I've fed him once when he finally got close enough to trust me but I think he belongs to someone, obviously because he looks healthy.

Anyway, I know how you feel. My Pomeranian goes outside to use the bathroom and comes back wet from the grass. It takes all I have to dry her off. The poor thing barely gets bathed lately. It's really sad. So, don't feel bad that you had a little dirt in your bed. Who cares!

The stories brightened my day up. I had to put one of my cats to sleep yesterday and I have been overwhelmed with grief. Laughing is good.


I love the story about painting the license plate. I get such a vivid picture of you in mental/physical disaray with your cans of paints and artists brushes, laboring over your counterfeit plate. And the baby with the markers - they are so full of mischief when they get quiet. I had crayon walls, glue on the carpet, all kinds of stuff! You can't be mad as it is just how their cute little minds work. When I was three I remember putting the garden hose through the neighbors window and turning it on to "clean their basement". They were on vacation for two weeks. I love animals too and dirt is just part of having them in our lives. There is hair everywhere! I do vacuum every day but the dust is so thick you can write in it. And the nose and paw prints on the windows and doors looks like graffiti. Wonderful way to make things look organized in minutes is just stuff it into closets and drawers. Problem is remembering which drawer and which closet you put it in.
So when you are having a good day and pull all of that stuff out, it is like Christmas finding all the neat stuff you forgot about. I have wanted a butter dish for years and lo and behold I found one just the other day! I also cleaned up an old candle stick I bought at a garage sale 3 years ago and discovered it is sterling silver!

+Lyme the veins and red spots could be bartonella. I did not know I had it so I am always warning people when they suggest symptoms that point to it - Hope not, but you might look at other symptoms to rule it out.

Nefferdun, yeah, I do seem to have a lot of bartonella symptoms, too. The test which showed the babesia was a Quest test, and the LLMD ordered also for Rocky Mt, Erlich, Bartonella, etc. Said he already knew the test was not very good, but would give us a start. Bart did not show positive, tho we already figured it probably wouldn't. (I think it was 'titres'? Isn't that similar to Elisa?)

then he gave me a script for a bunch more labwork that included all the co-infects, mycoplasma, etc. But I could not afford to get it done. Since I THOUGHT I was going to be going to a 'good MD' 'knowledgable' of Lyme, I figured I'd eventually get it all figured out. Not.....

There are places all over our house covered in ink scribbles where my son recently did his masterpieces! neither of us have the energy yet to clean- we don't entertain much anyway! I would love to see a picture of that couch JenninPA to see if it looks like our door, refrigerator and walls! good thing the pen our son used was running low on ink or he would have REALLY colored the whole house!
I refuse to stay sick! Period.

I used to buy underwear all the time... I bet when I was well, I had over 100 panties.  Now?  I'm down to about 7 pair... they're st leat 2 sizes too small (thank God for "stretch", if they even have any stretch left).  Now I'm starting to get holes around the disembodied elastic.
 
And shaving?  I used to shave almost everyday and wear panythose or tights and business suites.  My legs get so hairy now, I only shave up to the ankles for certain drs.... and up to the knee cap for others - haha. 
 
One day, they're going to find that tripped over my own underwear, onto a stinky carpet (no time to clean them and I have 4 animals), with super hairy lags.... and bra?  what bra?  And, I'll be in my pajamas that smell because I haven't changed in days
