We have an excellent cohort of diagnosed people here, let's see if we can find the common denominator among us.  We've all learned with this disease, we need to doctor ouselves, why not conduct our own scientific research? It can't be that difficult.

I'll go first.

1.  how many of you women, in junior high school, ever had a crush on a boy and practiced writing "Mrs. so and so" all over your notebooks?

Hum, I so did that, but my hubby swears it's the diet sweetener I have been ingesting for years. I will have to tell him he is wrong because we will now have proof that bc started way back in middle school..lol. I personally think it's because we played with plastic dolls made in, wait for it, CHINA...So there you go ladies, my official diagnosis for what causes bc.

Gosh, I never even thought of all those Barbies I played with....I can remember sucking on their arms at times. What can I say, I like to suck...

Hmmm, my list is just too long. But one thing stands out, the fog trucks in New Jersey each summer, when we camped at the beach area. By 8 or 9, we all were running through them...Just saw an article talking about exposure to DDT by age 14 was pretty convincing...

But then the barbies started by age, what 5, and that sucking on them, arms, legs, heads, popped one off once and almost died...daah...

Well, not only did I write my boyfriend's name all over my notebook (Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Donna Smith, Scott and Donna Smith, etc.,) I also ate AT LEAST five more servings of french fries than a toddler should eat.  Embarassed

OH...ME TOOO...I think we are on to something here.  I was in love with Mickey Whims...wrote it with a little heart over the "I" instead of a dot! 

I think that maybe the triple negative connection may be tied to chewing those red plastic wax lips they handed out for halloween when I was a kid.  I actualy ate them....I also ate those tiny wax bottles that looked like soda pop bottles full of colored syrup...

Oh Deb - that reminds me...I used to SWALLOW my gum!  I was always worried it my "stick to my insides" (whatever that means) but maybe it caused my BC.

Too much Deb... I now remember those little tiny wax soda pop bottles, I haven't thought of those in years.

I seem to remember munching on a few of those Halloween red plastic wax lips too. Maybe that's why I am one of the few remaining women who puts on red lipstick (Revlon Red, $6.99 or so, lasts forever), brightens up my skin color, but...doo du, doo du, yikes, evil red dye, on and in my system for years!

Back to the drawing board for more ideas...

I married that jr. high school sweetheart.  It must be that I've only had sex with one partner, or maybe it was the Bonne Belle Bubble Gum lipstick.

Now I'm wondering if it's 'cause I wore one as little as possible.  Loved those halter tops back in the day.
