Hi Kasey,
I get confuesd someitmes too.
Mixed connective tissue disease
Mean platelet volume
"somethng" venous thrombosis? (this one Im not sure...)
Everytime I read someone posts (usually on other sites) and they have all their illnesses listed, I dont know what half of them are. Sometimes (not you Kathy!! - I know it saves time when one has alot of illnesses to talk about) those "illness" signatures get me crazy...I mean some people put things like a RBC (really bad cold), or RT (really tired)...lol..just being sarcastic...but some people on those sites are like CONSUMED with every twitch and bruise...boring...
Oh boy, I really am in a bad way. Im ususlly very compasssionate as you all know...sorry to be so negative!!
