Can Multiple Myeloma Be Funny? Why not!

Posted on March 04 2010 by Pat Killingsworth | 652 views

Here is a fun list of zany terms as experienced by one of our readers–a multiple myeloma patient named Charlotte:

Last spring, under the influence of Dex, I decided to name a few

things. I have taught Medical Terminology and just had to start my own
personal MM terminology. So, hope this is fun for all of you! Remember
I was under the Dex!

BMB – Bone Marrow Biopsy = Dip ‘n Chip (to collect Salsa) OR Drill and
Sledge (as in hammer) – actually my BMBs have been fine.
All those meds = The Big Swallow
The actual pills = The Rainbow Assortment
Anemic increases = Weak Week
Sunday = Super Day
Monday = Dex Day or Monster Monday
Tuesday = Snoozie Tuesday
Wednesday = Will I Wednesday (as in stay awake at all?)
Thursday = Terrific Thursday
Friday = Flaky Friday especially on Weak Week
Saturday = Successful Saturday!

Enjoy,
Charlotte/CA

Thank you for sending me your list, Charlotte!  I can certainly relate!
Feel good–and I hope Charlotte’s list helps you keep smiling!  Pat

    What? No comments about Charlotte's whimsical insider's multiple myeloma list of terms? Come on–Haven't all of you experienced the highs (then lows) of your "Dex Day?" Guess mm isn't ready for prime time stand-up. But you are Charlotte… Funny! Pat
