Eek, just look at the ruckus I caused!  Iru, you naughty man, you, stop poking!

Iru’s always been a stirrer of note, sniffing out buttons to push.  He vexed one teacher to the point where she left school…

The illness I have has has kept me caged for some time and has not yet been pinned down precisely.  That will probably come.  The immunosuppressant treatment seems to be effective for now.  It’s not pleasant when your own body’s defences can’t tell friend from foe and starts attacking indiscriminately.

And thanks everyone for the positive thoughts!  (BM, my name is not Klaatu.)

Oh, it's a man... interesting.

You say button, I say false accusation. Wink

Indeed. My own decided some time ago to attack my central nervous system. Very irksome. Good luck and I hope you recover fully.

My best wishes for a speedy and full recovery, Mefiante.  And promise us that when that happens you will not point your finger up.

Thanks, everyone.  The trouble with autoimmune diseases is (1) that there are so many of them that pinpointing the right one is often difficult (though the treatment for many of them is much the same), (2) rheumatologists are extremely scarce (that’s a hint for anyone studying medicine who is looking for a specialisation), and (3) they are chronic (i.e., manageable but not curable, at least for now).

@BM: I hope it’s not MS afflicting you. Sad

@Hermes: Little danger of that because treatment doesn’t involve a lobotomy…  Evil

ETA:  I’ve just noticed that this thread lives in the “Fun” subforum.  I promise you, it’s not that.

Nope. I've run the gamut several times and all I've gathered is a laundry list of very bad things I don't have. This leaves only "minor" problems, relatively speaking.

Don't fret, someday I may actually know what IS wrong. Smiley

Mefiante: What’s at least equally stunning is the vortex of stupid that the tornadoes have unleashed. There are alarmingly large numbers of people claiming that the damaged/col​lapsed buildings/s​tructures were the result of poor design/shod​dy workmanship​. Such commentary appears adjacent to a photo of a lorry that was flipped onto its side by the force of the wind…
