I've weaned my baby

Yessirree, I have done it. I'm ready for that new medication that is supposed to work miracles with my blood pressure. She's all set. What am I doing? Oh, this? This isn't nursing, this is just some comfort sucking. She's totally weaned. Seriously. Oh, this nursing bra I'm wearing? I mean, it's not really a nursing bra--it just supports me really well, and is sort of convenient if,you know, just in case she needs something, like if she's really distraught, or if she's really out of control, or if I'm lying on the couch reading my book and she comes wandering up and pulls at my shirt wanting to nurse. You know, emergencies.

But really, other than a little swig in the morning after she gets out of her crib, maybe some alone time with her in the afternoon before she goes down for a nap, and some nursing in the middle of the night when she wakes up and won't go back to sleep, she is totally done.

Totally. Absolutely. 100% weaned. You betcha.

Excuse me, I must go. My milk is coming in.

To all PKD patients,
I know that you are suffering from PKD. I am writing to you because that I am suffering from “PKD” too. I am not a PKD patient, none of my family member is. I am a PKD researcher. In the work, I found out that some of the important data which were published and used by the laboratory to apply for NIH(National Institutes of Health)grants were falsified and fabricated. I presented the evidences and made complaints to the principle investigator of the laboratory and the officials in the institute. However, I was retaliated against for my whistle blowing and was asked to leave my position. If the research misconduct is covered up, millions dollars of taxpayers' money could be in danger of being wasted, the health of patients like you could be in danger of unprotected, and the truth would be buried by the lies. The adverse impact to PKD family is obvious.
I found the falsification and fabrication on PKD research were extensively spreading in the field. It is ridiculous and astonishing. Among all the false papers published, the cilium story is the most egregious one. I have plenty of evidences and reasons to say that most of the papers about the PKD and cilium were fake.
Meanwhile, I would like to say that it is like emperor’s new clothes, only kid like me (in Science) spoke up.
Is it hard to believe? Contact me for details, if you are interested.
In the end, I sincerely wish you and all PKD patients would obtain real cure sooner.
