    Has there been an article on asthma lately? My dad seems to have every sickness that the watchtower talks about. Now he has been walking around with an inhaler claiming to have asthma, so I figure there must have been an article about it.

    lol! WTS inspired hypochondria, never thought about that one before, but makes sense.

    Attention whore = someone willing to do, say or be anything to get attention.

    Always seeming to have the latest ailment does the trick.

    My mother is like this, too.

    One time, someone asked me what her health issue was and I said, "What was on Oprah this week?"

    you know now that I think about it, everytime an awake came out with a treatment or a disease, the conversations got passed around. I even heard of a few arguing with their Dr. Can U imagine that conversation? NO, no, no, I have a vitamin D deficiancy, the Awake said so and that's written by people who talk to God"

    This is pretty funny! It does seem the witnesses all catch the same thing. For a while all the sisters at the hall had chronic fatigue syndrome, then it was fibro mayalgia, then it was gluten intolerance, then irritable bowel syndrome, then they were all allergic to cologne and perfume. You name it, someone invented a reason to stay home from the meeting!

    I will be in Vegas from June 4th to 7th
