Sad but true...

I had a Facebook friend tell me that she has Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome (ZES) but is trying to treat it without using prescription acid suppressors. She wants to treat it "naturally". In ZES a tumor secretes an acid-stimulating hormone that is so potent that they used to have to remove the stomach surgically to prevent multiple bleeding ulcers. She was complaining about all of the pain she was enduring (?!?!).

I tried to diplomatically tell her that she has rocks in her head.

I console myself with the hope that she probably doesn't really have ZES. Otherwise she would probably be dead by now.
