Jamie, your humorous comment reminded me that I have told my husband and children that they can feel free to blame my AVM for any personality faults for the experts say we are born with these malformations. So, I tell them I have been unknowingly functioning with a defective brain ... lol.

I totally get your humor, Jamie and applaud it. I had AVM surgery and lost the top half of my ear ( and part of my scalp but that's another story.) So when someone accuses me of not listening or not remembering something I can always say. "Sorry, I was only listening with half an ear." Literally

I remember after hearing the news of my AVM and my sister was with me so feeling a little silly I looked at her and did,"I knew I was sick in the head". Gosh it was the best laugh! And we laughed so much during all of it.Then after surgery and that darn clicking noise and finding out that it's the screws or what not holding the skull together I just thought, now I just have a couple screws loose. Laughter really can be good medicine.

Hi guys has anyone seen the movie The Angriest Man in Brooklyn ?, Its got Robin Williams in it and is about a guy that's told he has an aneurysm and only 90 mins to live and he then tries to cram loads of stuff into that 90 mins, Its a sensitive subject but I figure it will be funny. Just wondering ?, Not sure if it will be a little weird to watch given all our situations. Thanks.

A man was walking along a California beach and stumbled across an old lamp. He picked it up and rubbed it and out popped a genie.

The genie said "OK, OK. You released me from the lamp blah, blah, blah... This is the fourth time this month and I'm getting a little sick of these wishes so you can forget about three. You only get one wish!"

The man sat and thought about it for a while and said, "I've always wanted to go to Hawaii but I'm scared to fly and I get very seasick. Could you build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over there to visit?"

The genie laughed and said, "That's impossible! Think of the logistics of that. How would the supports ever reach the bottom of the Pacific?

Think of how much concrete, how much steel!! No. Think of another wish."

The man said OK and tried to think of a really good wish. Finally, he said, "I've been married and divorced four times. My wives always said that I don't care and that I'm insensitive. So, I wish that I could understand women...know how they feel inside and what they're thinking when they give me the silent treatment to know why they're crying, to know what they really want when they say 'nothing' to know how to make them truly happy."

The genie said, "You want that bridge two lanes or four?"
