Q and A!

Amma, i can't kneel down, my patella hurts!


My eye is red, it itches too, i think i have hindivitis! (after 30 minutes of studying Hindi)


It's that time of the month yet again. Time for glares, suspicious headaches, frequent parched throats and wrist pain. The too informed preteen helpfully tells me that he suffers from the carpal tunnel syndrome!!!! or that his pivot joints hurt.
