So my sidter in law went to this fortune teller who live in another town.She rang me to say that she had told her lots of stuff that no one else could know.Then she said you have a brother in law who has a bad bowel and that he needs to take care of himself.And that i have a little girl who is extremely ill and will always be really ill but that she has good life ahead of her.
          How freaky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  I had a nasty expereince on Wednesday morning. I had to rush my daughter to hospital as she was having serious breathing diffuculties caused by a nasty chest infection.Really scary and not anything you want to have to go through.She is out of hospital now and recovering again.But the crazy thing is that i went from having 30 bloody bms on Tuesday to having about 5 on Wednesday, then back to 30 yeaterrday and today again.I can't explain it.Maybe the big guy cut me some slack cos he realised i needed to be at my daughters side.

I have a good friend that goes to these fortune tellers and she comes back to tell me some of the strangest things. I'm sort of a skeptic when it comes to that, but if you hit the real deal then I'm a believer. Such as Sylvia Brown, I think she is the real deal.

It does sound like the big guy upstairs was watching out for you. Too bad he couldn't have made that improvement a permenant thing eh?

Wow!!! That is scary! I would totally freak out hahah :)

That's pretty neat though. I've always wanted to see a fortune teller but I'm afraid of what they would tell me. I'm really neurotic and I would probably spend the rest of my time worrying constantly.

No offence meant here,but my personal opinion of so called "fortune tellers",is that they feed on superstition.Fatboy,I'm happy you "got well" for a day,to be with your daughter,but just as stress can make us ill,I believe that it can also help us.Your body knew how important it was to function that day,and created a "chemical dump",to get you through it.

As I say,no offence to anyone,if something helps you by believing it,more power to you.But I'm a man of science,so my belief is in the biology of it.

You would think that if fortune tellers were real, they would all say the same stuff and make the same predictions... lol....

It's so hard to know if it's for real or not...I went to a reader way back when I was 20 she asked me about me having troubles with my guts (at the time I was healthy.... I didn't get CD until I was 23 turning 24) and I said no, then she told me about my dad and how she sensed troubles in the chest area (he died 3 yrs ago this july from a blood clot that went into his chest), she also told me she saw me getting married and arriving at the church in a white car (that also happend by a freak of nature because at the time no one had a white car in my family but by the time I got married someone did)...she saw alot of what was to come in my future at that time.

She told me I'd end up back with my ex, who is my husband now for the last 18 yrs, she also told me I should look into being a sales rep for cosmetics company or work for the airlines...I should have listend to her on either of those suggestions...she new alot of things that had happend in my life previous was weird...I should have listend to her...seems like she knew me better than I knew myself.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

I don't know if any of that is real or not bbut boy is it fun!

I've seen a few psychics in my life and each time I left feeling good. Granted most predictions are vague and general but who cares? I think alot of what we with chronic illnesses or people ingeneral need hope and that's what psicics do, give us hope that life will work out the way we want.

The last one i saw told my two friends and i about when we would get married, what careers we would have, ect. So far she was right within a year or so of when she said it would happen. I just find it neat. It doesn't make me want to rely on a psychic for happiness or anyhthing. It's jsut fun and hope.

That is freaky.

I'm guessing your reprive was the adrenaline rush from having to take your daughter to the hospital. Adrenaline = cortisol = prednisone. Think of that "super human" feeling you have from higher doses of pred...
