Internal Organs as Status Symbols, or, Where I've Been

Frequent UTI's have been an ongoing thing for me for a couple years now. So a couple weeks ago was my most recent trip to the doc for a super in-depth urinalysis for another UTI and a round of antibiotics.
Except...there is no bacteria in my urine, nothing to indicate infection. Yet I have all the symptoms, and my urine is definitely abnormal, there is a bunch of shit in there that shouldn't be, things that "only unhealthy kidneys would ever have this show up in a urinalysis."

So they come back with: let's run some more tests.

So who knows? Guess I'll just keep on truckin' along, because it's not like having healthy kidneys is important or anything.
