Okay, it's time for the standard apology:
Doctor D has been remiss in his blogging duties.
Yes, I over-committed himself to multiple projects and AskAnMD faltered just as it was achieving greatness. I see no point in the near future in which I can invest the time in this blog that I once did. I enjoyed blogging as "Doctor D" but for now I have to put this thing on ice:
AskAnMD is going into hibernation.
I may post a 3 or 4 answers a year, but I'm not sure when or if it will ever return to regular posting.
"No blogging today. Tomorrow doesn't look good either."
I'm still checking email and still getting a ton of it, but I can't guarantee an answer. (PS: Although you should already know better than to email your symptoms to an anonymous blogger asking for a diagnosis, let me remind you again: Don't go there!)
The archives still getting hundreds of hits a day and lots of comments. If you haven't looked around the AskAnMD Archives you may find a lot of useful and fun stuff.
I'm also still tweeting since it requires zero time commitment. You can always drop by Doctor D's Twitter and we'll have a 140 character conversation.
Thanks for making this blog such an awesome conversation. See you around.
