Ugh! I’m surprised I haven’t strained my eye muscles from all the eye-rolling I’ve given to all of those gross people on th subway who don’t give a shit about spreading their illnesses. Having gone through chemo I now know just how susceptible you are to catching and fighting viruses when immunocompromised. It’s Read more

Rebecca - We might be neighbors. If we met IRL, I’d love to have coffee and compare notes. I did pelvic floor PT at Sloan Kettering’s PT office in midtown last year. My issues steam from the effects of breat cancer treatment - I’m in my 30s. PT somewhat helped, but my dsyparenuia is a combo of weak muscles and Read more

Exactly. I have two friends with HIV that have survived with it for many years, but the treatment (and probably the fact their viral load is a bit higher) has taken its toll. The closer of the two friends doesn't ever talk about it, but I worry for him.

I think the whole cast minus this main kid and the mother’s best friend are really good. I’m surprised how much they all grew on me.

Speaking of which, my husband and I are big Doug Loves Movies fan and my husband just bought and listened to a 2011 episode of the podcast with Amy Schumer and then boyfriend Anthony Jeselnik are guests. She's REALLY drunk during the show and obnoxious as all hell. Yup, although I do appreciate some of her comedy, I Read more

I would be. I wish we saw him instead. We also saw it during those 6 weeks when Andrew Rannells took over for Groff. He was so, so fantastic and I'm so happy we got to see him. He almost made up for LMM.

Ha! Yup, I shuddered whenever he had to break from rapping and go into melodic singing. Not very good at all.

This may make you feel better: Me and lots of other theatre snobs think that LMM’s performance is the weakest part of the show. He’s a truly brilliant lyricist and composer, but there's only so much talent one human being can possess.

I’m a little hesitant to ask this because I don’t want to any way imply that mammography should be avoided or is dangerous, but what is the rate of incident of a mammogram causing breast cancer? I ask because I was diagnosed at 36 with a just over stage II (in size) tumor and I had had one mammogram 5 years earlier. Read more

Of course, statistically breast cancer hit after 40 but it certainly does get women before 40 (before most can start getting mammos) because I was one of them (and I have met plenty since because I’ve joined some under 40 BC groups). I’ve done haphazard, sloppy BSE since I was teenager, but a few years ago I gave Read more

Of course there is still a lot of research to be done, but I think for my needs this may be the best choice. I’m a NYC resident who doesn’t want the full commitment of car ownership, but wants a car to use on the weekends. It'll be a transition car as we in a year or two move out of the city into the suburbs. Read more

Seeing Hamilton made me long for the, comparatively, the more well-rounded Revolutionary War era women/wives of 1776.

I so did not pick up on that. But this has happened before. I was an avid listener of Tig Notaro's podcast (Professor Blastoff) and she had her then non-public girlfriend on and they were giggly and just so adorable together and I completely missed it. In retrospect it was so, so obvious.

I listened to that Anna Faris Unqualified podcast (it's quickly becoming on of my favorite podcasts) a few weeks ago and thought, "wow, what cute platonic love they have for each other." Oops... Called that one wrong. Anyway, you go girl!

I have not had a kid and my guess is that I probably won’t, but I think, * I think* I’ve experienced something like bad contractions. From time to time I get pelvic floor muscle spasms. Usually, they are minor or just centered around those muscles in the butt area, but I had an attack somewhat recently that lasted for Read more

I haven't even begun reading this piece, but I can tell it's going to fuel my hot burning hatred for this show. My husband watches it and I rant and rave whenever he wants me to watch a segment he finds interesting. It's wholly manufactured and dishonest schlock dressed up as "sociological experimentation." I hate all Read more

Yup, that's going on my list! Now, I just need to figure out how to watch it.

My question to my husband: Everybody in GoT land talks with wonderment about dragons, but why aren't more people impressed by Wun Wun? A GIANT, y'all!
