Just for Fun

Sometimes life gets really complicated.  Not only do we deal with everyday struggles, but we have this weird disorder to contend with.  I find myself looking at life through stormy glasses and the only thing that will pick me up is to find something to laugh about.

Thankfully, I have several friends that have the same type of humor as I do.  I was recently with one of these friends at our state fair and happened to notice a very strangely dressed individual.  All I had to do was look at my friend and we both burst into laughter.  Not so much because of the weird person, but that we had both noticed that the other had noticed.  Does that make sense?  Neither does most of the things we find funny.

Anyway!  Soon we will be changing our name from RLS (Restless Legs Syndrome) to WED (Willis-Ekbom Disease).  That is a serious move and it led me to think about other acronyms that could be used within the WED context. And that's as far as the seriousness went!

So here is a listing of some acronyms I came up with.  See what you think and come up with some others.  Let's have some fun with this but keep it clean!

ACE--advocates, concerned, educated  (that's us!)
BAD--barely acceptable doctors
DUH--deliberately uninformed humans
DUMB--deliberately uninformed media buffoons
CREEP--crazy, repulsive, erroneous, entertainment personalities
RANSOME--really annoying nonsensical snake oil medicines

What do you think?  Silly but true?  Did you laugh?  I hope so.  Laughter can help us survive just a little longer.  Pass it on!

Moon and Stars,

Inflammation is believed to be a key factor when it comes to Restless Legs Syndrome. A new study was published in the January 14, 2012 issue of "Sleep Medicine Review Journal" that supports this theory. You can read that study here:

You can view the results of other related scientific studies and learn about some helpful solutions at this RLS information website:

A blog for RLS sufferers with helpful tips can be found here:

An essential element is a proper diet that avoids as many inflammatory foods as possible. Unfortunately most of the good tasting foods are inflammatory.
