    It's Bad To Be The Favorite - 9/15/14

    Wish Me Away

    Ours is characteristically the kind of if-it-isn't-this-it-has-to-be-that, dichotomized, either/or thinking that philosophers from earlier times have cautioned can lead to a simplistic misreading of reality. And, indeed, psychologists today have discovered it is the mark of a lower or less psychologically evolved stage of cognitive and emotional development. - Riane Eisler

    Thanks, guys! Unfortunately, I spent my birthday in the hospital. No, I didn't do anything like hit on a Hell's Angel or anything fun like that. I've been having some chest discomfort for about two or three weeks and the doctor had me do a stress test last Friday afternoon. That evening, I was admitted for an angiogram, which they did on Monday morning. They found blockage in an artery but they're treating it with medication rather than a stent. I've been home for about 45 minutes now and just readjusting. I'm feeling okay but I'm really tired at the moment. I really wasn't expecting something like this for...never.

    Thanks again, guys. I really do appreciate it!
    I still poop rainbows.

    A hospital is no place for an ailing person. Good thing you're home.


    Take care!

    I hope you don't have to go on a diet of steamed fish and celery because of this...unless you actually want to.
