Apparently, those who are growingly dissatisfied with the way food is handled in this country are starting to come together with a coherent message.

I have always had a hard time believing I was sick until my body reached the point where I was physically unable to have a normal day. I was the type of child who would say, "Do I have to stay home from school? I feel well enough."

I have finally reached the point where I know, in my mind at least, that I will get better sooner if I stay home, but I still feel like I am lying to myself a bit when I do. "I am not really sick," I tell myself. "I can still get out of bed, shower, make food, read. I should be at school/work."

However, if I needed proof today that staying home today was a good idea, it came when I sat down to read and did not realize I had fallen asleep until I woke up 1.5 hours later.

Better not eat bagged spinach for a little while. Glad I heard about it, Jeff and I usually have a bag a week.

Good: Hall Health, the UW medical center, was, when I called around 12:40pm today, able to schedule me an appointment for 1:40pm.

Bad: I had to have my annual women's physical and get blood taken around 1:40pm today.

There is an interesting series of articles, Suddenly Sick, coming out this week in The Seattle Times. The articles talk about how diseases are defined and redefined, generally in a way which increases the number of "sick" people and the revenues of drug companies. If nothing else, read the introduction.

My posture is a good indicator of how well my research is going, and I am on my way to a bad back.
