That's what I call it,Lol! I have 2 dogs, and 1 cat that live inside with us. I also have outside animals(chickens, turkey, miniature pony,3 fainting goats) but that is another story. Anyway, my daughter, who also has FM has 2 dogs inside also. We were talking the other day about how much our pets help with our pain. I was just curious if it is only us that do this and only our pets that react to our pain this way, or do you all have the same things going on with your pets? Anyway, when I am in a flare, I spend lots of time on the couch and the recliner. Any other time, my pets go about their day doing the things animals do. But when a flare hits, they curl up with me. their body heat feels so good and their softness is very comforting. Its like their bodies are little heating pads. They make sure they get real close too. Mine very seldom move away from me during these times. Just to go do their jobs outside and right back in. When I am sad, they hang right with me, too. My daughters pets do the same to her. They must have a sensor built in to pick up on when things are not right, lol! I know this is kinda weird sounding, but I was just wondering if anyone else gets love from their pets like this. Maybe dogs really ARE mans best friend...and womens and...etc. Lol! Have a great day, all! Hugs~ Cheryl

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.

A deep longing accompaniedby the deepest Love some days. The heavy fog mayreturn and the next day, it may recede.Once again, it's...
