yes I believe that laughter is the best medicine, when I was diagnosed with breat cancer of the left breast 15 years ago I burned badly from the radiation it took me months to heal and I had the mos pain ever and until the doctor doubled my morhine for pain was I able to heal. It was durning the night I woke up laughing my husband woke me up and asked why I was laughing, I went back to sleep and was awaken by my husband and said you are laughing really hard. And it was then I realized that I waa going to be okay and I am a survivor for 15 years and I love a good belly laught when I can find someone to laugh with.
I am sorry for my mistake in my previous blog. It should have read. A poem I wrote years ago I never new I could write a poem. I thought everything had to rhyme...haha I love to laugh, my poem is called. "Traditional Healing".
I have been learning about traditional medicines for years now from a special grandmother but I am willing to learn more to help our people who are suffering from the past.
