Least Surprising Headline of the Day

Least Surprising Headline of the Day

When I was strung out on Desoxyn, I had a lot of physical problems, and one of them was joint swelling and pain. I went from one rheumatologist to the other, and was variously diagnosed as pre-lupus, unidentified connective-tissue disease, fibromyalgia and everything else under the sun. No one said, “Hey, what meds are you taking again?” My poor hands turned into hideous crabs, but it was only temporary; after rehab I fattened up and my skinny, knarled hands turned into bloated balloons. Lovely.

My point being: I understand this headline, all too well.
