I Want to Be Underwhelmed, Winter 2020-21

Rather a badge of honor for an "underwhelmed" thread to be paywalled, isn't it? I always thought of these threads as under-the-radar and not likely to draw the popular kids. It's almost whelming.

I nearly charred grilled cheese sandwiches while preparing tomato soup, but was able to salvage two non-burnt pieces of bread while doubling the cheese. This required more grilled sandwich making, but I’m a pro at peeling fake cheese squares.

Maybe there should be a thread about being whelmed. I had a prostate biopsy this week, but it was definitely whelming so I won't talk about it here.

I'm on the final day 3 of Picato: the sun damage gel. Has to be kept in the fridge like a Covid vaccine and comes in the 3 teeny tiny tubes like a Russian virus. Not much reaction which is a little disappointing. Seems all the solar damage has healed. Had previously done Efudex, which was great, but brutal.

I don’t come hear to see the word “biopsy.”

R12 Who's your doctor? The FDA warned about that med five years ago, citing "reports of severe allergic reactions and herpes zoster (shingles) associated with the use of Picato gel (ingenol mebutate.)"
The Canadians say it may increase the risk of skin cancer.
The European Medical Agency has recommended suspending its sale pending further review, citing reports of tumor growth and malignancies roughly ten times more than those in comparator groups.
It seems it can be overwhelming.

I lost 26 lbs, but then Halloween came & I ate leftover full sized candy bars, so I started walking with my husband so I wouldn’t gain weight & he wanted to get back in shape.
I gained a couple pounds but was walking them off.
Every time we walked my husband kept going on & on about having heartburn, he wondered if he had H pylori again, should he take Gas X, etc. Then he’d go into minute detail about what foods he ate, at what time, in what amount. Then he said he couldn’t walk so far anymore & each day he wanted to walk less & less.
It was really unpleasant.
I told him 2 weeks ago to see a damn dr & he did and needs a cardiac catheterization.
No more walking for a while.......
