A Not So Rich Look at a Billionaire's Viewpoint

I know this article sounds COMPLETELY off topic and borders on politics.  Politics is something that I don't really discuss much here on this blog because I feel opinions are like belly buttons.  Everyone's got one and sometimes the discussions can get so heated that an "innie" winds up having an "outy".

My personal opinion on politics is that politics suck.  The parties never seem to agree and they constantly bicker and never get any work done.  I know that if I pulled half the stunts the politicians have pulled in the past several years at MY job, I would have been fired.  But that's what makes them different-- they can sit on a law or policy, refuse to work across party lines, and STILL have job security because elections are only done every couple of years.

I think a lot of people are as fed up with me when it comes to politics and big business.  I'd say the economy-- but let's face it-- the economy IS big business.  They are the ones callin…

LiquidCMO Formulation Gives Dramatic Results For Fibromyalgia Patients

This press release looks promising, however, the studies done do not state the number of participants.  I don't like press releases that don't state the facts-- that's a personal pet peeve of mine.  I shouldn't have to find the facts-- they should be there in the release-- but that's me.  And as far as the numbers go, it's a bit scary that they don't post them.

HOWEVER, MSM can help Fibro sufferers.  That has been proven and I've even used it myself when I've had inflamed joints.  It did take a week or two, though for me to feel better once on MSM.   So if you decide to go that route-- wait at least two weeks before deciding it's not right for you.

A word of caution though, this site is only worth looking into if it's affordable for you.  I say that because personally, at least from my stand point, it's a little high. The cheapest bottle is $92.00 for about a two week supply (16 days).  Now that may seem harsh and I don't mean to beg…

Fibro and Attitude

I was in a conversation with a friend of mine the other day and the topic was about attitude.  She compared me to another friend of hers who had Fibromyalgia and said, "Kim, don't take this the wrong way, but you just seem to have a better attitude about your illness.  My friend gets too caught up in what she can't do and can't eat and she just seems miserable all the time."

Being the person I am, I tried to brush off the compliment.  I'm not one for accepting them well.  I'm me, a human being and I may do some things well, but I've been known to screw up too.  And when I screw up it's usually bad so compliments are not something that I've gotten used to.

But something else was hard about that compliment and that was the fact that someone else was suffering.  They were feeling down and out about their disease, possibly even overwhelmed.  We've all been there.  We've felt bad about having to change our lifestyles from a fast-paced type …
