More from Mr. Lumbar

"Doc, maybe this sounds weird, but when I feel weak, I don't feel very strong. And the opposite is true, too. On days when I'm feeling stronger, I seem less weak."

Some days, when I don't sleep a lot, I'm tired. On days where I sleep more, I'm less tired.

Some days when I feel happy? I feel less sad. And when I am sad? I feel less happy.

Wow, Dr. G, that is absolutely fascinating! What an astounding medical anomaly! I'm sure you will get that published in a paper in a major medical journal!

Scene from Reservoir Dogs:
[Nice Guy Eddie asks if anyone knows what happened to Mr. Blue]
Mr. Blonde: "Either he's alive or he's dead, or the cops got him... or they don't."

My neurologist once said to me that an observation of mine "could be considered as evidence of a learning curve, of sorts." You could say the same. PS I *love* my neurologist--she enjoys saying provocative things to me and I enjoy responding.

Sounds like that Vicodin is working for him...

I don't get it- it seems perfectly straightforward to me. When s/he feels (emotionally/mentally) weak, the (physical) body is not strong, and so on. It sounds like someone who is not very mentally "connected" to their body, to me. That is, some amount of dissociation going on there- and they are just noticing the relation between how they feel emotionally and the corresponding perceived level of physical strength that comes with it. Sorry but I wouldn't laugh at this person.

Wow. The deep thoughts from Mr. Lumbar astound me. He should write a book or something, because he is obviously a mental giant...

Mild Mannered Mr. Lumbar is actually a superhero in disguise - known as Captain Obvious. Occasionally his disguise is slightly blown when he opens his mouth however.

I actually understand the person from his point of view :\... maybe it sounds dumb. But he's just saying how he feels.
