Cryptosporidium Infection

Okay, we have a name for it. Apparently there is this nasty parasite going around our area, and people are getting it from pools. It takes 2-10 days to manifest itself and guess what? I was swimming in a public pool exactly 10 days from yesterday when this whole thing started, however, I did not feel that great a few days before the actual touchdown of this nasty parasite.

If you want to read about it, check out this document by the CDC

It is ultra gross, but at least I know what I dealing with here. Wish me luck, and since weight loss is a side effect of the parasite, I guess I can't be all that mad. I sincerely need help.

Hey, send me an email so I can have your email address. Some things I would rather just say to you and not have the entire world be able to access and read... if you know what I mean. :)
