Hickam’s Hickie

Neurologist Shipper Jack Knight has made a very interesting commentary on my high-level paranoia that I have all sorts of diseases.

“Are you aware of Hickam’s Dictum?” she texted. “It’s sort of the opposite of Occam’s Razor of parsimony. It states that a patient can have as many diseases as he damn well pleases.” I told her that this is the first time I’m hearing of it, but I’m loving the concept. In an X-Files episode Fox Mulder refers to Occam’s Razor as Occam’s Razor of Laziness. So far I think my chest seminoma has resolved on its own, but is now replaced with a multitude of conditions that present with muscle twitching, partial seizures, throbbing headache on walking, palpitations on seeing rare toys, and steatorrhea. Take it away, HAMI’s, I know you already have differentials.

“I think I have 2 diseases per sub-specialty,” I told Neurologist Shipper Jack Knight.
“Grabe not just 1 but 2 diseases pa!” she texted back. “Naisip ko tuloy si Vilma Santos in a Bear Brand commercial: not just 1 but 2 glasses a day!”

I miss my bloggable friends.
