I went and gave them vampires their blood. We're testing antibodies now to see if my body is killing my thyroid.

After that I went on my jog. There were three buddhists on the stone arch bridge in their vermillion / saffron robes. One of them had a bitchin' woven fibre hat... hemp or straw or something. There was also a seemingly very young lady selling ice cream out of one of them there push carts with an umbrellar.

Maybe something else, I don't remember. Di went and passed out before I got home from work. Happy hour will do that to you.

Oh, I know what that something else was. There was this eastern european muslim girl in the lab waiting room. She reminded me of that old jewish man stereotype or something as she struck up conversations with every stranger in the room and didn't shut up the entire time I was sitting there. It was actually a bit soothing.

Hope your results are positive! ...Or negative. Whichever one is better.

Well, it'd probably be easier at this point if they just found out I had Hashimoto's Thyroiditis like my sister (her antibody levels were 500 points above normal). Because if I don't have Hashimoto's, my high Thyroid Stimulating Hormone level of 7.19 would suggest maybe a pituitary problem (e.g. tumor). Normal TSH should be at most 5.0, though some say 4.5, and modern research suggests anything over 2.0 is a sign of problems. And if it's not Hashimoto's, and it's not a pituitary thing, then god only knows what the hell is wrong with me. Symptoms of Hashimoto's: "common symptoms are fatigue, depression, and sensitivity to cold, weight gain, muscle weakness, coarsening of the skin, dry or brittle hair, constipation, muscle cramps, increased menstrual flow, and goiter (enlargement of the thyroid gland)."

No goiter, and I'm actually more like a hyperthyroid in regards to weight, pooping, and temperature sensitivity (namely the exact opposite of the symptoms given above), but man my vagina will just NOT stop bleeding.

Hmm. After my mom had part of her thyroid cut out (to see if she had thyroid cancer) she got this really kickass scar that looked like someone tried to cut her head off. Maybe you can have that too!
(she wore turtlenecks for a while)
