Laughter is the best medicine

It occurred to me that occasionally I chance upon some piece of pain humor that tickles my funny bone... and sometimes it floats around again. The real good ones do. But sometimes they don't. So I post them on my page for sure but if they are links to sites I may lose them... so I figure maybe I will post some of the ones I really like recently and if it is on my blog, well, that lives forever. And I can enjoy it again and again. Or at least have access to the source if I want to post such awesome humor in the future. Maybe I will do it once in awhile just to have some blog humor on here to make it a little less depressing, eh?

 This cartoonist has a blog called A Cartoon Guide to Becoming a Doctor and this is an old one but I only came across it at the end of June... I find it hilarious of course.
The fact he is a doctor is funny in itself... most of them have their sense of humor surgically removed in order to attain that poor bedside manor.I suspect some sort of nerve damage in the hands is to account for the handwriting, or at least that is my excuse.

I think we have seen this pain chart everywhere on the web... it is an awesome one. And it comes to us from Hyperbole and a Half (check out the link it is hilariously funny) where she describes the descriptions as:

0:  Hi.  I am not experiencing any pain at all.  I don't know why I'm even here.

1:  I am completely unsure whether I am experiencing pain or itching or maybe I just have a bad taste in my mouth.

2:  I probably just need a Band Aid.

3:  This is distressing.  I don't want this to be happening to me at all.

4:  My pain is not fucking around.

5:  Why is this happening to me??

6:  Ow.  Okay, my pain is super legit now.

7:  I see Jesus coming for me and I'm scared.   

8:  I am experiencing a disturbing amount of pain.  I might actually be dying.  Please help.

9:  I am almost definitely dying.

10:  I am actively being mauled by a bear.

11: Blood is going to explode out of my face at any moment.

Too Serious For Numbers:  You probably have ebola.  It appears that you may also be suffering from Stigmata and/or pinkeye.

Also her whole description of depression is humorous and yet very insightful... check out Depression Part Two

This is classic migraine humor here. Don't really need to add this because I have the picture saved and use it from time to time in posts.

Signs the pain is getting the best of you

100 Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

There was a site that had this and I had linked to it on Tumblr but it is gone. So I had to hunt down someone who found my post and posted the whole thing in a forum. Anyway it is around but I'm posting it here so I will not have to hunt it down to reference it. Now we all know the major symptoms are the wide-spread pain, but our pain isn't just muscle pain... it can be nerve types of pain as well, and the fatigue and the insomnia. And even among symptoms there are some far more frequent than others, but it should be said we have categories... like the cognitive dysfunction, which is a broad one that has more than one symptom and we often just say fibrofog. The insomnia... more than one sleeping disorder. So the list is interesting.

__ Fatigue, made worse by physical exertion or stress
__ Activity level decreased to less than 50% of pre-illness activity level
__ Recurrent flu-like illness
__ Sore throat
__ Hoarseness
__ Tender or swollen lymph nodes (glands), especiall…

When I say I am good

When people ask me how I am feeling 99% of the time I am lying. I often say 'not bad', because I feel it is slightly more honest than 'good' or 'fine'. Got sick of fine. Anyway, I lie for many reasons. 

I'm having a good pain day: They happen and I'll say that I'm good, fine, not bad. I even feel like I can accomplish great things... in moderation. In which case, relatively speaking, for Me I am not actually lying. This is a Good pain day, it is Not Bad for me and I am Fine with it. I just don't want to explain: I just don't want to explain how crappy I feel and in which way I mean. Because I am tired of it. I just want to deal with it, without having to discuss it, mention it or have any sympathy expressed about it. Because it can be complicated. It may be a migraine with specific symptoms. Maybe it is a FM flare though. Or both. And then I have to explain what it is because most people think my migraines are the main issue but I could be FM…
