Yup! I am truly envious of the Tinman.And you are thinking "What?" So it sounds a little silly to be envious of the Tinman, after all he gets stiff, and plainly becomes stuck, can't budge an inch,I can explain this clearly, I have fibromyalgia and if you too have this predicament then you too also might suffer from Envy of the Tinman. See when I am in pain ooooooh do I suffer, stiff, sore, achy and I even walk like the Tinman, that strange hobble bobble walk. Now the Tinman when he gets all stuck and squeeky he just pulls out his trusty oilcan and Woooohoooo. A littel squirt of WD40 and he's just doing a jiggity jig, hi-5ing everyone of his friends, and giving all his pals piggy back rides. Yah do I ever envy that Tinman, I would love to have a shot of WD40 so I could do a high-stepping-jiggity-jig! Do You Envy the Tinman too?

You know at first I was wondering but you are right. I am envious. I'd love to be able to rub something on my joints and then dance like him let alone walk all that distance. Actually I'd probably do anything to be able to do that, any of that. I agree when I'm in pain I can barely move and to do so is very painful. I either look like the tin man or I'm so wobbly and nothing works right that I look like the scarecrow. Neither of which is very good you know?

Emeraldisle. For the last 2 days I can barely walk with my hips. We just finished getting rainy gross weather. I ache before the rain, during hte rain and after the rain and now the weather is hot and I still hurt like well you know what I mean. I sure would be nice to have a little can of oil and rub it on and woohoo!~

You and me both. We only had rain yesterday but I've been miserable with pain for over a week. Not sure what it is that is making it flare up. I agree with the other poster. $1.40 for a can of W40 sure is better then what the doctors want us to pay for our relief. Thanks for best response :)

I used to be. But the longer I've had FM and severe arthritis the more I realize that if people live long enought, they ALL will be like this, so I'm just ahead of the curve, somewhat.
