In tonight’s comic adventure: Miss Waxie returns! After months of good health, Miss Waxie battles stomach upsets, spleen hemangioma tumors, cancer scares, and possible Crohn’s disease only to come out still fighting, well aware that it is both a comic – and chronic – life indeed!

Friends, if you’re still out there, I apologize for my months and months of absence. I moved, I started a new job, I could leave my bed. And well, the comic took a back seat. Or maybe it fell out of the trunk… but no matter…I’m back and not exactly better than ever, but I sure am here if you’ll still have me!

In Tonight’s Comic Adventure: Miss Waxie learns to love her greatest adversary as being taken seriously by the Cleveland Clinic has provided her a golden ticket into better medical care. Sure they might think she’s in a coma, but what can she say, the Cleveland Clinic kinda grows on you. Not unlike the MRSA they so rampantly spread through Ohio…

Dear Readers, 

As the text of these comics is entered into each post as an image, all search engines from google to wordpress can’t read the words, thus making these comics very near un-searchable. In order to counter this, I’m going to be giving a short summary sentence after each comic so it shows up on keyword searches. Thanks for understanding. And keep reading!

Many thanks,

Tonight’s Comic Adventure: The five months saga that began with pelvic pain and a trip to the gynecologist. The pain was eventually blamed on everything from endometriosis, to a hernia, to my established rheumatoid arthritis, to scoliosis, to finally finding a bulging disc in the spine thanks to my connective tissue disease. All that from referred low back pain. Phew! 

Where Am I?
