Something's going around

I just get the weirdest health problems, ever!

Here's a list of a few:

Hydradenitis Supparativa (I might have misspelled this)
Celiac (or non-celiac gluten-intolerance...the only people who really care are the health insurance companies)
Kidney stones

This last one, admittedly, is partially my fault. I don't drink enough fluids. Mostly, because my bladder is the size of a thimble. But whenever I pass a stone, I swear to mend my ways. Doesn't happen. But I'm back to swearing again.

The pain isn't really that bad, it's just annoying (especially the peeing through a strainer).

Let's have a naming contest...anyone have an idea for what to call the bit of calcium oxylate I'm currently birthing?

Happy Solstice! Is that right? Thinking of you and wishing you the best, now and always.

actually, gluten can cause kidney problems and the skin condition you mentioned. Good lick!

Anon: thanks for the info. I thought what you were saying might be off, but a quick check shows that indeed there are some real connections of celiac to both. Joy!
