WTF . . . and Monsters
As I said to my dear LadyBug in comments on the previous post, I don't have any real answers. I did, however, see the toxicdoc, and she listened carefully to my theories. I had emailed her a link to some of the research I had done, and she had actually read it, done more research, made some calls, etc., before I even got there! I was very impressed and pleased with her. As I expected, she has neither seen nor heard tell of a case like mine, however, she says that my theory "has standing." Meaning it has piqued her interest and she wants to research it and try to help me get to the bottom of it. She sent me for x-rays, and I will pee in another gigantic jug (do you need another pic, 'cause all you have to do is say the word and I'm all over that), and I will give her the telephone-book-sized stack of prior lab results, etc. She has asked that I deliver them next week.
She said things like, "This is what I do, I stay up nights thinking about things like this . . . " (Here I must interject a hearty, "WOO HOO!" because I've been praying for a doc with this attitude.) She also said to me, "I will not abandon you." And I could have cried, because there's been an awful lot of that going on around here lately.
And now, something that I feel compelled to share with you, in the interest of home safety. (Not for children.) It's right here. Have a wonderful weekend, friends, ratsasstafarians, and don't let the monsters get the upper hand.
