Humor is the best medicine

When I first came onto this board, it was pretty dry, but filled with helpful information, and wonderful support. Everyone was so serious. I went to the dystonia board, and I'm sorry to say, it was worse, and in fact; I could not stay on the dystonia board because it was very depressing. The first humor that I used regarding my disorder, was when a supervisor called me at home and asked what it was. I could not describe it effectively, so I asked her if she knew what Tourette syndrome was, and she said she did, and I said, "well, that's what I look like, only I dont say #&*#@!!!!" She laughed, and I laughed, and I felt better. I really hope we don't lose the humor on this board. The way people interact, clearly show's the personalities involved, and you really get to know the people on the board through the experiences, humor, and anecdotes told. I feel better after reading the posts, not worse, and that's what I enjoy the most. I am young, 53, and when I grow up I want to be just like Sally from Idaho, who lives in the state where I was born, and her best friend is a Flathead native american, born on the same reservation as my father.

Hey Joanne, I'm also 53, but I don't think I want to gow up:)
I also have some Native American in me, though it's a different kind. I think Im a Heinz 57 variety:) My youngest brother, like Judy, is into the geneology thing, and I've found out many interesting things from him.

it would be sad if the humor was lost on the BB. And I agree that it's needed - so we don't all dry up with no sense of humor. I don't think anyone here wants humor to disappear. Reading the posts DOES make one feel better, and the light hearted ones make you feel great.
