I swear, my life is the butt of one joke after another. And because it’s me, I do mean BUTT.
This morning over breakfast I read the news that researchers have just discovered another likely suspect for my Crohn’s Disease. Whoo-Hoo! I couldn’t wait to learn more about my future cure!
Screen shot of the article in Newswise.
I was in my element. I am, after all, a fake medical expert AND a real expert patient. I quickly read the article and learned that researchers had found a fairly common fungus that was likely to be in my gut — a fungus amungus, as my Dad would have said. Candida tropicalis could be the culprit. And once you know the culprit ….
Naturally, my next step was to look up candida tropicalis to see what medicines I can take to get rid of it. But this is my life. And it is me.
And so I learned that the fungicides that are use to combat candida tropicalis are assholes.
Or really “azoles” — a specific class of anti-fungal drug.
Is it just me or does this seem like another poop joke on me???? After all, an azole by any other name ….
