I am a member of the Faustman Phase II trials. I went there, I got screened, and I'm IN.
I am supremely happy about this.
Here's a picture of happiness.
|Also, I love this song and this show.|
I will say this, however -
I signed a paper that said I wouldn't talk too much about it on social media or blogs, etc. so I am very limited as to what I can say.
Of course I can tell my friends and family about it, but they want the internet presence to be limited, as as not to compromise the study in any way.
Which makes me a little sad, because I wanted to blog EVERY STINKING DETAIL, mostly so I can bore you all to death, but also REALLY mostly so I can remember it all. But I can't. So this is what I will say.
Boston is cold. But it has good Italian food.
I will be traveling there, often leaving at unheard of times in the morning, because it is far away.
I want the REAL DRUG. GIMME. It's a double-blind, so we don't know what I will get, but I know what I want.
You can read about her research on Faustmanlab.org. You can also donate money.
They're still recruiting, so if you want to join me in my coolness, shoot them an email.
I got to meet Dr. Faustman. Here's a picture to prove it.
|I should have put makeup on. |
That's it! Send good vibes that I get the DRUG. I want the DRUG, peeps.
Studies, They're fun.
(Also, I went to the endocrinologist a couple weeks ago. Labs were good - a1c at 6.7 - LDL cholesterol down to 138. Thyroid still fine. Yay.)
