This was just too humorous for me not to post. I came across a great scientific study while reading one of Flourish with Fibro‘s blog entries.

According to a study published in the journal Neuroreport:

Swearing increased pain tolerance, increased heart rate and decreased perceived pain compared with not swearing…. The observed pain-lessening (hypoalgesic) effect may occur because swearing induces a fight-or-flight response and nullifies the link between fear of pain and pain perception.

What I want to know is whether that means swearing counts as aerobic exercise, too. (After all, you’re raising your heart rate, right?) I need something new to do in my current, unable-to-walk-properly state.

About Me

This blog is intended as a place for me to reflect on my own healing journey, in the hopes that others may also gain insight from my experiences. I've "borrowed" a line from Robert Frost's poem, The Road Not Taken:

'Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.'

I think the most important thing for me now is that I feel empowered to be a force for positive change in my life. And that, my friends, has made all the difference.
