In Tonight’s Comic Adventure: Good news for once! Miss Waxie makes math bend to her will as she subverts the patterned path she’s been on and finally finds a doctor willing to take her and her condition seriously. He even believes Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy exists! ‘Course, he’s an endocrinologist who specializes in transsexual hormone replacement therapy (and thyroid disease), so for once, when she visits him, she’s the most medically normative patient of the day – and that’s saying something! 

The Eye has it….

In Tonight’s Comic Adventure: Successfully recooperating from her cataracts surgery, Miss Waxie once again thinks on just how weird it is to have and old lady surgery at the tender age of 23 – even if they were caused by prednisone. Sure, the side effect was on the table when pred was brought up for the UCTD/ lupus/ rheumatoid arthritis deal, but getting cataracts so soon is like finishing only half of your box of Lucky Charms before finding the prize buried inside. …Well, gluten free Lucky Charms in Miss Waxie’s, book.

Page_3In Tonight’s Comic Adventure: Miss Waxie’s disease vocabulary expands tenfold as she finds herself faced with yet another possible diagnosis. Shocked, simply shocked at the possibility of hearing words like “manageable” and “better” in relationship to her lifelong battle with autoimmune disease, Miss Waxie finds herself hopeful…and fully confused by the notion. Not to mention, where does this leave her in terms of things like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, cidp, and celiac….?

Dearest Readers, apologies for my absence. My brother graduated from college this week and between the trip to Washington, DC where internet was scarce and processing my most recent round of doctors’ appointments, I simply hadn’t a chance to update. I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for viewing; in just a month, this site has had over 2,000 hits. Take that doctors who claimed there was nothing special or interesting about my disease process!

Where Am I?
