Word. I didn't mean to infer that you'd get pin worms from your tank. They can very easily be transmitted other ways. I personally have never drank my tank water but I expect a little bit isn't going to have that big of an effect on you.

Let's hope it's nothing big. I worry mainly because I get plants in from all over the country and sometimes out of country. You never know what could have hitch hiked in from plant farms, the wild and other people's tank.

Well, I hope you get feeling better. That's a pretty crappy situation to be in. I feel for ya, hope they figure out what it is and get you back to good health.

I just can't see you getting anything like that from your tank. I suppose it's possible. Let us know what the doctors say.

Bad news. Blood test and stool and urine all clear. Off to the gastroenterologist.

Yep. Wish me luck. Not to sound morbid or gross but at least my poo isn't as diarreah-y as before so I'm guessing it was just from stress from the end of the school year or something (it's loose not watery). No idea. Also no blood in my stool means it's probably not ulcerative colitis. Or it's UC in its early stages. Only one way to find out though.

Celiacs isn't that bad, my GF has it and it's completely manageable. The Co-Op and all it's gluten free goodies will become your best friend.
