Having A Giggle Over Chronic Fatigue Syndrome — The Humorous Side Of CFS and FM.

Posted Nov 04 2009 10:01pm

JUST A LITTLE SOMETHING I CAME ACROSS TODAY. I GUESS A LITTLE GIGGLE NEVER HURT, AND IF WE CAN’T LAUGH AT OURSELVES, WHO CAN WE LAUGH AT? Hope you get a little giggle too.
ON A LIGHTER NOTE

I think that the greatest boon to diagnosis in modem medicine would be a machine that could let the doctor feel exactly what the patient feels. This is one of my favourite fantasies. This machine would transfer the patient’s feeling directly to the physician. It would make him/her feel exactly as the patient feels for a set period of time.

You know when you have CFS/ME when…

  • Everything hurts and what doesn’t hurt, doesn’t work
  • You actually look forward to a dull evening.
  • You sit in a rocking chair and you can’t get it going
  • You feel like the morning after the night before, and you haven’t been anywhere.
  • Dialling long distance tires you out.
  • You are found curled up asleep, halfway up the stairs.
  • You remember today that yesterday was your wedding anniversary/birthday.
  • Your little black book contains only names ending in MD
  • The best part of your day is over when your alarm clock goes off.
  • You get winded playing chess.
  • You bum the midnight oil until after 9.00pm.
  • You join a health club and don’t go.
  • Your back goes out more than you do.
  • Your mind makes contracts your body cannot meet.
