Why did I just call everyone "Bumpkins?" I must be feeling maternal...

I just wanted to apologize for not being around very much lately! You guys are so self-sufficient you don't need any moderation (now don't start throwing free-for-all postings...ha). I've been a loony toon between school stuff and hospital stuff and all kinds of other stuff. But I do always read and will chime in when I can (although most of you are the more resident "experts" around here now)! Let me know if there's more I can do to help.

How is Adam? And your dad? And the wedding plans? I hope all of that is still on and your Dad is holding out. I can imagine w/ just school you don't have much time for anything.
 
"Bumpkins" for maternal feeling?  I think maybe you mean "pumpkin."  LOL  A bumpkin, at least in the South, means someone who is uneducated and not culturally astute.

D'oh. I'm going to fix that little mistake before I get reamed. How about...buddies. That seems nice and innocent, more like I intended! LOL!

I do like poodles, but I like you guys more. I must say that I like poodles more than medical school, however.

I am slowly, slowly putting the pieces together. Want to hear my latest piece of profundity? My diagnosis of Grave's disease (autoimmune hyperthyroidism) came about a year ago. The diarrhea (which as you all know is completely ridiculous), obviously, has never stopped, and this fall became particularly worse. Yeah, yeah, I'm stressed out. I'm a med student, I'm supposed to be. But last week I was in the hospital for a couple days with syncope (fainting) and it turned out that my EKG readings and kidney tests were just entirely jacked. I know I'm just a jacked person, but this was insane.

My endocrinologist laughed when I asked him if my Grave's disease could be causing these other symptoms. He literally laughed! I did some research (and I know how to do research - what's valid, what's not) and it turns out that there are hundreds of articles out there about patients with Grave's disease having malfunctioning kidneys either due to the disease itself or due to the medication that they put us on. I incidentally changed my thyroid medication in October, which is when my kidney problems started. AHA!

We'll see what they think of that. Next time I see 'em. This will prove fruitful yet. Although I must say I've almost given up on myself.

P.S. The wedding is just over three months away. Invitations are ordered and in. I haven't even seen 'em, but according to my mother they are "fine." Which is fine with me :) Adam has been a TROOPER the past few months!!!

Hello to all- Sarita, glad to hear that you are hanging in there.  It's always nice to have updates on people.  Katy, our fearless moderator Sarita is getting married.  It's very exciting and I hope a very bright spot to an otherwise very challenging year for her.  She's getting married, going to medical school and battling IBS, past parasites (right?) and Grave's disease amonst other things.  Welcome to the forum.  I hope everyone is doing well.

Arrive at church. Bathroom. Get dressed. Bathroom (use handicapped stall when in wedding dress). Ceremony. Break for bathroom. Pictures. Bathroom. Attend reception (cake and nuts but no meal) and bathroom as needed. I suggest not forming a receiving line, as this will have you pinned down for too long. At my wedding, people just came up and greeted me at random intervals.

Maybe I should hire myself out as a wedding coordinator for people with IBS? I'll arrange your wedding around bathroom breaks, LOL.
