Gah!!!
I was bummed out about getting sun poisoning in Costa Rica (due to malaria pills). Methinks I came out of that country in much better shape than you Kymmie. Amazing place btw....

Danielle, I hope you're ok but after reading these posts, I'd get that test too. Crossing fingers for you.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Did you take Malaria pills sepcifically for a visit to Costa Rica?? I took no precautions as after my research I deemed that none were needed. Amazing is right. I met so many Ex-Pats down there and considering I could live like a queen down there as far as how far our dollar goes it's worth considering. I could have an amazing garden and a HUGE pack of dogs. They lack a good LFS and top-notch medical care so maybe not...

I had no idea I had worms! I figured I had food allergies because only a few types of foods were giving me trouble. It was when the B/F said, "Your breath smells bizarre" and then the next day saw "things" in the toilet that shouldn't have been there did I RUN to the doc. Yeeeach.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I'm pretty sure worms make you lose weight...

Some countries use worms (tapeworms I believe?) harvested from cows as a dieting aid...

Ok, now THAT is disgusting! Eat less, move more, is a much more effective weight loss method.

I love that emoticon, lol. Fitting into a wedding gown? Why not just buy one that fits in the first place! Wow, there's a concept.
