A Ray of Sunlight?
The whole time I've been dealing with WTF Disease, two things have remained rather constant: I have said that I believed I was as likely to be diagnosed by a blogger as by a medical professional, and I have longed for someone to look at me as a whole, at the big picture, at my history as well as my current symptoms.
Finally, I believe there has been somewhat of a breakthrough. You may recall that recent lab reports indicate that my Vitamin D level remains curiously low. Just this morning I received an email that may shed some much-needed light on my condition. Dr. mrtl, who has been following my case for months, and who does know my background in a way that other medical professionals do not, has offered her considered opinion that my Vitamin D deficiency could be due to lack of sunlight. Of course, everyone who knows anything about Vitamin D knows that this is possible; the mystery was, how could that be, when I get about as much sunlight as any middle-aged woman in the mid-Atlantic region. Dr. mrtl may have solved this mystery, with her speculation that my gigantic ass is, in fact, blocking the sun, preventing me (and perhaps countless others on the Eastern seaboard) from experiencing its life-giving properties. If you live anywhere near my ass, you might want to get your D-level checked.
(Yes, I know that I will attract quite a circus of pervs who arrive here after searching "my gigantic ass;" but it was worth it, you know?)
OK, for real. I mean, the above is for real, that's what Dr. mrtl said. But the other doc I saw today had no clue. But she seemed smart, and kind, and she said -- wait for it -- no other doc has said this to date -- "I am going to do some research and see if I can find something that would tie all these things together. Call me on Friday." Translation: "I give a rat's ass. I'll see if I can help you." So, that's good. I'll let you know when I know something.
