Waiting makes me anxious. There are things I’d like to see get handled, but thanks to my medical insurance it won’t be done fast.
The most important are my kidneys, but since it’s not yet an emergency Health First—my HMO—has to verify that it indeed needs to be dealt with. That it’s important.
That tells me that comprehensive health insurance is a lie, and that we’d all be a lot better off paying cash for basic health care. And being foresighted won’t kill you.
That means being foresighted enough to teach our kids to be foresighted.
So now I’m pooped, I’m about ready to zonk out, and I’ve got to wait to find out what the problem is and to get something done about it. But in short it’s interfering with my work, and I have things to do, dammit.
So I ask, are there any petitions online urging that people get paid in full for what they do? Or that price gouging be outlawed?
I’ve started taking B12 and that seems to have improved my energy, now I have motivation to do stuff. In other news I m now working on the Dangerous Journeys SRD, but that’s going to take a while to get done. Now I get to fiddle with a plug in, after which I have another post to write.
In this article in the Scientific American it seems that researchers have found common elements between autism and schizophrenia. Now both are conditions we really don’t know all that much about, but from my experience I can see how they might be connected.
With schizophrenia what you often have are hallucinations. In fact, I once met a schizophrenic who as we were talking started to see inside his mind a most vivid image of a flower. He knew it wasn’t real, but it was vivid. In my case I have been diagnosed initially as a schizophrenic, and to some extent my autism could come across as that. It would be interesting to learn that the two are related, and that autistics can be treated as schizophrenics, and schizophrenics as autistics.
This may well mean changes into how the two disorders are approached and treated.
