Typical Hyperthyroid Symptoms

Tuesday September 29, 2015

Wednesday September 30, 2015
Uh oh! Margo's not out of the woods yet; Tommie has changed into her gray turtleneck of foreboding.

I feel like  Tommie's dialogue is the windup for an antithyroid medication. "Hyperthyroidism hurts; Tapazole can help!" "Don't leave me hanging here, Tommie. Should I get in touch with my doctor if after taking Tapazole I have nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, or jaundice?"

P.S. those are legit side effects, I never in my life would've thought to come up with the phrase "clay-colored stools."

So, what color is clay? If we're talking about Play-Doh, that could look really alarming.

I thought Impatience was Margo's middle name. She's apparently had this problem for a long time.

Good thing they're not at all worried about the amnesia and uber confusion. That could really have complicated things.

Though I do feel like we were being cursed with our own "anxiety, impatience, and depression" with the whole story line. Are we supposed to feel empathy with Margo as a result? I don't feel it.

Hmm...I think I'd call my doctor any time I thought I had jaundice. Will Margo get a prescription for Alanis Morissette's "Jagged Little Pill"? That would be "ironic"! Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!

I read this on the comics website:
Apartment 3-G is a serial comic strip about three single female roommates as they juggle their careers, friendship, men and life in the big city.
Really? Coulda fooled me. I thought it was some kind of Dada performance art piece. Didn't realize it was supposed to make sense!

Ooh! I read this, too:
Rex Morgan M.D. is a compassionate family physician, who is personally invested in his patients’ best interests. This comic strip tackles contemporary and contentious healthcare issues with sensitivity and intelligence.
Maybe sexy Rexy will have a go at Margo?

"Margo's case has gone on far too long." I think Tommie spent too much time as a veterinarian's assistant in Happiness Falls; her go-to diagnosis is now "put 'em down."

"Whelp, Margo'll never race again. Where's that pistol?"
