OK, this is just stupid, and there is so much pain and sad stories......I wanted to see if I can make someone laugh.
I was working in my woodshop today, and drinking a Pepsi. I told my wife that I had a really metallic taste in my mouth. I have Hemachromitosis and well as Grave's, so you all know the weird symptoms you can have. I have had strange tastes before since being diagnosed with Grave's so I thought, here we go again.
I finished my drink and it struck me what the problem was.....a dirty,metal screw had made it in my cup!
Not laughing at you. With you. This is all new to me, and, as many, this is just another ailment to add to our list (hemochromatosis, that is). Remember, if we don't laugh "we'll all go insane". I lost my insurance...and I learn from others' experiences. Thank you for sharing.
