its something like ms it slowly consumes its victim,my wife in 5 yrs has gone from a healthy mother of 3 to almost cripple , in the next 5 yrs i suspect she will be wheelchair bound, she cant go to the gym as exercise just speeds up the effect, there are days like today that she cant get out of bed, the pain is so great in the next 10 years when my children are finished school we will have to leave Canada for someplace warmer and dryer.
this is why the comments from the dead rat were so painful to myself and my wife
i would never comment about other members choice of a wife or husband,as we all know love is blind.
OK digs you are in no way responsible for the rats comments he was just demonstrating to the rest of us that he is not man enough to apologize or even admit that he is wrong.
the overwhelming reply from the members supports my opinion of the dead rat.
i appreciate the support from all the members .again thank you
I have two comments and observations:
1) For a big tough cow-poking Canuck farmer, you whine like a little sissy bitch.
2) I'll lay odds that in the head-on collision, the oncoming car came off worse.
Incidently, as usual you are bullshitting. It is specious to compare fibromyalgia to M.S. Here is what the God Wiki has to say in summary:
Some physicians do not acknowledge that there is an organic cause of fibromyalgia. They may say that fibromyalgia (along with other syndromes such as irritable bowel syndrome
and chronic fatigue syndrome
) is merely a label for psychosomatic
patients. Fibromyalgia has also been called a "wastebasket" diagnosis, usually meaning that the doctor does not acknowledge real pathology or consistent disease. This can be very distressing to patients who misunderstand and think that the doctor does not believe that their symptoms are real. However, this should not be taken to mean that the symptom complex of fibromyalgia does not exist, but rather that they do not have a somatic cause. It is important for doctors to explain to patients that fibromyalgia is a syndrome
so a diagnosis of fibromyalgia is a starting point, from where the doctor will run more tests to try to discover the root cause of the fibromyalgia symptoms.
