A couple of years ago (or maybe a couple of months ago--I have "time" issues), I asked people to refrain from medical posts. Just to clarify, what I really am asking is that people not engage in discussions about serious medical or psychiatric matters in a way that could be construed as the giving and taking of medical advice. I don't want people getting medical advice on the forums. Please email or PM if you need to discuss particulars. There are all kinds of examples of reasonable exceptions to this and things that are clearly not ok. Here are a few.

Ok: Q: My wrist sometimes hurts when I'm playing my flute. A: Try taking more rest breaks and hold the flute differently.

Not Ok: Q; I have clinical depression and I'm not sure if my Prozac helps. A: Stop taking antidepressants and exercise and pray more.

Not OK
: Q: My child has ADHD. A: ADHD is a made-up disorder. (Or:) My niece takes Alertease (TM) and is doing much better.

Probably OK: Q: My legs hurt and my eyelids itch and I have a lot of gas. A: Dude. Go see your doctor.

Yes, thanks.

Sometimes when I play the whistle, I have a painful and embarassing involuntary discharge. But only sometimes, not every time. It depends on with whom I am playing the whistle. Not with guys, though, because I'm not gay or anything, but I might be if someone gave me a nicer whistle.

I think I have a medium bore. Should I get a Susato?

In the absence of doing the more socially savvy thing and giving up whistle altogether, Depends® will probably do the trick for you.

I don't want anything called "Depends." I want something called "For Sure."

Does the pitch shift/belching phenomenon qualify as medical issue?

Nope, that's physics.

I actually preached with a catheter in place once. Just once.
Kidney stones and an emergency room visit late on SAT night.

Thereby by-passing one of the congregation's essential safeguards against an overly long service -- the bladder capacity of the pastor. If the good reverend doesn't have to stop to pee, will the sermon ever end?

Depends upon the capacity of the bag attached to the catheter and the size of the water glass at the pulpit.
You do the math :)
