Hi Leeann: What we put up with,eh? I am in Nova Scotia, Canada. I don't think we've had two consecutive days without snow. And cold, beyond belief. I don't know how many more of these winters i can take. i could marry some well to do fellow and talk him into sending me south for six months of the year, hey, not a bad idea. I always believed in love first, security second. I might change my way of looking at all that. Anywho, those electro-shock thingy's, are they tens units with the little pads, 4, which stick to your skin and deliver electric impulses to the tender spots or muscles? If so, I have one, I used it twice, there are all these wires that get all tangled up and it's more trouble than it's worth. However, if I had a well to do man, devoted to my every whim maybe he could untangle, and apply it correctly, humh? I think people who cannot recognise that you can suffer w/o there being outward signs that you are suffering, are stuck in the middle ages. These people believe that if you can't see it, it doesn't exist. You ever notice anyone spurting blood, no matter how minor always gets triage first in the emergency room, while someone who has a broken arm or leg w/o bones sticking through the skin, waits and waits. Almost makes me want to stick meself with a hatpin, just to get care. So it goes in the land of Fibro. How about
people with Diabetes and Kidney disease, is the disease all in their heads. I had a friend/babysitter once, when I came home from being struck by a truck who said "well, you don't look all broke up to me". I would have fired him except I was to sore to do w/o a babysitter.
I hope you all get a relatively pain free, sunny, not to cold day, except those in Florida, of whom I'm extremely envious.
