Comedy. Laughter. Humor.

Take as often as needed.

No costly doctor’s appointment – in the flesh or virtual – required.

No adverse side effects – not even the usual ones – nausea, headache, constipation, diarrhea, kleptomania, heart attack, tennis elbow, diarrhea, flat foot, droopy eye, dandruff, diarrhea and death.

And – best of all – you can’t overdose on laughter.

A new study published in the British Medical Journal claims that your risk of heart attack is greatest on Christmas Eve and the following two days.

You may be going clinically stir crazy from being confined inside.

Feeling irritable, listless, achy, unproductive, homicidal?

More than usual, that is?

Your symptoms could be due to something totally unrelated:

Seasonal Affective Disorder (aka cabin fever, stir crazy, bonkers) is common… especially where the sun don’t shine – like the East Coast.

Let us diagnose you…

HOW TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE CABIN FEVER
