Watchdog: When Social Security says 'no' -

6 Weeks of Bliss

We all got to talking on about gifts and what we'd like to give and receive this year.  I thought about it long and hard and came up with this...

The best gift I can receive is a little time-- say five minutes a day away from the entire family-- including the pets.  I'd like to try and use that 5 minutes to meditate.

I'm surprised to see people now using it for Fibromyalgia relief. I'm actually a little saddened by this because it seems that society as a whole has not come to grips with the fact that Fibromyalgia is a real disease. Real diseases need real doctors, real treatments, and real diagnoses in order to have relief.

Pain pills and trick words to pretend the pain away are really making things worse for us all. The body has pain naturally occur for an actual reason-- it's trying to tell you something is wrong. New research has to be done for this disease so we all know where the source of it is. If we find out that it happens to actually be a brain abnormality then magic pills or words are not the solution.

The band-aid factor that the medical industry is using to cure our alime…
