I'm starting to feel like an old know, the ones who only talk about their health problems. However, this was a funny, yet alarming, discovery.

I was working out at the gym the other day, on the elliptical machine and watching the T.V. I noticed that the commercial that was on was advertising a prescription medication for men with enlarged prostates....called FLOMAX. I instantly began laughing to myself.

I'm sure you're all thinking, "Shanna, enlarged prostates are no laughing matter! Hundreds of men suffer from this painful condition." Precisely, enlarged prostates are not funny! What's funny is that FLOMAX is the medication that was prescribed to me for my kidney stones. That's right, I have been taking a medication designed for men to help alleviate the symptoms of enlarged prostates.

It seems I have more to worry about than a couple of measly kidney stones.
