gout! @ 11:43 pm

Current Mood: milkshakey
Current Music: the heater whirring

I've created pro_gout as a forum to discuss all things gouty. Gout, for those of you not familiar with it, is a metabolic condition which causes the buildup of crystals in the joints, causing amazing mind-blowing pain when an attack occurs. You need to be genetically predisposed to have gout, although there are those that have pretended to have it in order to fit in.

Anyway, pro_gout is a pro-gout forum. Those of you who are anti-gout or only seek to judge, please don't join. Everybody else is welcome.

I have no idea why people think that I'm being facetious.

I understand

If I were gouty I would join but I am just gall-stoney.

No, I really do have gout. I fucked up my toe, and after drinking a decent amount of beer, it kicked in. Got it in my left ankle, too. It's really godawful painful when it flares up. It means that I'll probably have to take medication every day for the rest of my life.

Therefore, I figured it was a perfect ailment for which I should whine about the anti-gout people, and to strongly declare my proudness for having it. What's not to love about gout? People just don't understand!
