Oh my god, one of my old pdocs is on there! The one I utterly HATED, btw. she said she was going to write a book on pregnancy in the MI and really wanted me to be a lab rat for her... the only time she seemed to have a real interest in my care was when I was considring pregnancy... I guess she atually did it...

Pardon the irrelevance, it just freaked me out.
