I like how they pronounce 'fibromyalgia' - it put a smile on my face on a bad morning. I will be using the same pronunciation on days I need to fight harder. Thanks for sharing!

I kind of thought that was funny too. But the video is pretty good.

Wow! I'm impress!! It hit every point for me down to the T ( except my PD but close enoug) . I'm just used to explain it in much different ways. I would love to make the explanation cards out of that alone. Maybe the recording card using those robotic voice to keeping up with emotionless style lol. That's priceless.

Oh, goodness, sqeaky toys...if squeaking them didn't make our Doxie over-the-moon joyful (and consequently, me!) I could never put up with those things. But her joy is my joy, so I put up with it now and then.


I played this video for my Husband and it opened his eyes even more about what my days are like. He's an Angel, but even so, it must be difficult to understand the daily grind we go through.

Stay well, Tipnatee!

Maybe I could replace the squeaky sound with something that only animal could hear?

Ah, yes, but then you'd have the problem of teaching your dog how to blow the whistle.....and who would know if it was doing it right?

Lol The silent dog whistle is looks like a skinny straw pipe so it could easily replace the squeaky sound pipe ( which you can easily pull it out and replace it) to make less annoying sounding when the pet bite on their squeaky chew toy. But if you already use the silent whistle to train your dog to do tricks , then your dog might have quite an interest reaction. I have a cat ( my cat like jumping on it) so I don't think it would work for him.

I absolutely hate this video. the monotone computer-generated voices are so utterly creepy that I couldn't watch more than about 45 seconds of it. If someone were going to make something you could actually show to someone why wouldn't they do a better job than that?!
