Posting this to be light-hearted and add some fun to everyone's day.

What super power have your developed as a result of Lyme disease?

I have developed an amazing sense of smell. I'm a super-taster of smelling!

I developed super sensitive hearing and can now hear a butterfly burping 5 miles away! I wear a SUPER-butterfly costume with a cape and 2 shiny orange slippers that I can also use as ear plugs!!!!

I've developed a keen sense of BS, most especially noted with respect to health.

Hey Tincup, still can't believe your a fire fighter. That's too funny. Awesome.

It's not exactly funny, funny. It's awesome. It's you're get up and move mountains, caring personality. I could see those traits indicative of a fire fighter. Plus, as a female, I think it's awesome you are a female fire fighter.

Hope I didn't offend you. I just think it's fitting. (Besides, your tough, you can take it). [Big Grin] [Cool]

Heightened senses for sure. [Smile] I can feel the energy from herbs or supplements sometimes (while still in the bottle) and know if it's going to be good for me.

I don't know if it's getting older (late 40s) or my other lyme superpower, but I can blow any perpetrator posteriorly to my rear clean off their feet, especially when I awake. It's an unscented burst of gas. An air force to be reckoned with. [Big Grin]

haha Ann-Ohio! I hear ya on that one!! sometimes I wish I had my totally numb dumb brain back so I can forget everything and be happy!

what everyone is saying is so true and funny too.

thanks Onebratt!

before tx I would say my super pwers had super powers as everything was superhype mode! think Gilligan's Island when they planted the food from the radioactive boxes!

I am glad now that my super power for smell and sound Xray vision have gotten lessoned.

so now my superpower I would say is following through on good deeds. now I just don't htink about sending a card or telling someone a kind thought- I do it!

I can smell 2-4D 10 miles away.

I can re-injoy movies i already have seen,I forget most of them.

I find game wardens hiding in the forest watching the people fishing. Because i have to sneek back there to pee all the time.

That is my interstitial cystitis.

Probably LYME made it worse!!!

A World Class Imitator/Mimic-er.
I've lost my own characteristics, accent laugh etc.
I inadvertently pick up the characteristics of people I'm with. It's quite a treat to laugh and then recognize it as the same laugh as the person I am with.
To hang around a group of east coasters for instance and then to talk like them for a week afterwards.
It's a small vacation from my own life and I like it.
If they ever run out of parrots at the zoo...I got this one, I'm a shoo-in

I used to levitate. I'd lie down on the train, and people would ask me why I was lying down. That was my answer - just watch, in a half hour I'm going to levitate.

I'd name a time well after the station I was going to.

Oh, and I was also writing a very lengthy book about ceilings, too, as my answer as to why I was lying down. Then they would look up at the ceiling and start discussing it with me!

Whoa - Lymetoo has become REALLY talented - and I can read your mind too - your mind is saying, let me check out Lymenet, let me see what I want to respond to next on Lymenet...am I correct?

Greta, I like to listen to folks too, and sometimes quietly, sotto voce as it's called, I try to talk like they do.

I got overheard once - it was when a couple of guys from London, with a cockney style, were talking about their trip to Greece, and they were describing the butterflies they had seen, like this:

I saw onnnne BU-uh-fly, then twoooo BU-uh-flies, and then a who-o-o-le swammmmmm of BU-uh-flies!!!

So I was practicing that behind them and got caught! Oh well, if you can ever get paid for your ability to do accents, you could say it's your bread and BU-uh...
