This is funny, well done. I did not realize the therapeutic value of comfortable clothes. I like the Seinfeld remark by one of the readers.

Funny to find that I am so normal when I feel so abnormal.
This is so true and seemingly normal that it makes me laugh at my horrific pain. "Laughtert is health to " whatever ails you indeed.
