    Do You Have the Syndrome?

    My family tells me that I have the 'syndrome'...and I don't dispute it!! But I have encountered lots of people who think I'm nuts, and claim to be 'just a fan'. I never gave much thought to the difference until lately...so cast your vote, and post your 'symptoms'...should be fun to see how many of us have this!

    The 'Fanatical Elvis Syndrome' symptoms: You have thoughts of Elvis soon after you get up. You have an irresistable urge to visit a website dedicated to him several times daily. You are a subsciber to Sirius radio's...All Elvis channel/station. You own several pieces of Elvis memorabilia. And last, but certainly not least, you have either wished at some point, that you were Elvis himself, or you have wished that your significant other was!

    The 'I'm Just A Fan' symptoms: You think of Elvis every now and then. You own only a couple of items related to him. You only visit a website to see what gossip is new. You listen to Elvis only occasionally.

    Daddy, I miss you more every day. You will always be my hero..

    It's funny...Gail and I used to talk about this 35 years ago. There were fans and then there were fanaticals. I don't think I need to describe which one we are. And...just for the record, I have never wanted to be Elvis. Have I ever wanted to be his significant other?? Well...I can't even count that high!

    I have the syndrome. I have never ever wished to be Elvis though. You also need to add that you visit his home at least once a year....I think.

    You know, all my Friends say you need help when something of Elvis comes up and I usually have the correct answer as they just think the Whole Elvis thing is out of control, but then I usually have the last laugh when I may be walking by them and they might be humming an Elvis tune or they even may say , rams, who sings this song ? Its really good ? I say Elvis ? Go getcha' some !!!!....Go get the Elvis syndrome !

    Lol I think I have the syndrome too But I am proud of it!

    I do have thoughts about him soon after I get up...and even before I fall asleep because I have a big Elvis poster hanging over my bed lol
    I do visit websites about him as often as possible (especially my favourite TCB World)

    I never wished to be Elvis myself though lol and I've not subscribed Sirius Radio either

    Oh I have the syndrome. I never listen to any other music besides his. I really dont even know the artists of today. I really think he was "cool" and what made me a fan was how unique he was and how there will never be another phenom like him ever again. I would like to know how it was being Elvis. Not wishing to be him but to be in his shoes for one day would be cool.
    "When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was a hero in the movie. So every dream that I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times. I learned very early in life that without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend; without a song. So I keep singing a song." - Elvis Presley

    Definately have the syndrome! Everyone around me thinks I'm nuts! Nobody understands me but my Elvis friends....I listen to Elvis 24/7 on my computer - in my car, etc. I collect Elvis memorabilia, my office at work is filled with Elvis stuff, my bedroom is filled with Elvis stuff......I can't get enough of him. Never wanted to "be" him - but would loved to have been kissed by him!!!
