I was diagnosed with it on a few separate occasions (usually when something blows up and I end up with doctors - years and cities apart). I will tell them about it, they ignore it, and then tell me the same things back to me.
I didn't realize you are in Austin now - I am going through there on a road trip and staying over to visit with some friends in about a month from now. I'd offer to take you out for drinks, but it sounds like now isn't the best time.
The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself. And bears.
