Circular Logic you can use

My neighbor Herrmann has OCD so bad he's been practically unable to leave his house for 6 months. We have been trying to get his handwashing and skin care under control. Anyhow, he just called. He read my treatment page and is now obsessing on mouth care instead. Ha. I love that.

He told me he feels much better already and I could hear it in his voice.

It's kind of nice to have someone to be comfortably weird with, but our goal is for both of us to be better and be able to meet for tea and a conversation- without twitching and losing track of the discussion- sometime before this summer ends...

Rock and Roll Heaven

I was really hoping Amy Winehouse would hang on for a few more years. Find another path out of the torment.

Rest in peace. Don't trash the place...

Field Trip! Save the Date!

Rise up Zombie Hordes!
Zombie Intervention Tactical Operations Start Soon!
Fri October 14 - Sat October 15, 2011
Las Vegas Nevada Stratosphere Hotel

Christina and I have decided to meet up in Vegas during the Narcolepsy Network Conference. Do some passive-aggressive public service work. Show those people there is another way.
We are hoping some of you will join us and make it a real fun experience.
We will be there both nights, but will plan a shindig for Saturday so day-trippers can attend. It won’t be very structured, just a celebration of Zombie Reanimation. I do have some wicked ideas for games and contests and costumes, though.
I will try to find a gluten-free caterer. I’m not going to coordinate travel or rooms though. If you wanna come, you’ll have to arrange that yourself. Just please let us know if you are attending- we would like an idea of how many to plan for…
Compulsory Annoying Fine Print: If you are my creepy ex-boyfriend stalker- this offer is null and void. Don’t even think about it. I recommend large doses of antibiotics instead.

This is Why

"We will never understand a mind like Levi Aron. Nor should we try. I just read that he is on suicide watch and wish he weren't. If he killed himself it would be no great loss. He is not human anyway."
-Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

A not-so offhand hypothesis

The reason our military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan are having such high rates of mental illness is due to the weather conditions.

They go over there and live in the sunny, dry desert or the cold,dry mountains and get head infections. And by the time they get back, the immumologically susceptible ones are chronically ill.

I'm guessing they put them on low-fat diets too...

Update- look what I just found:

Correlation Games

Children exposed to secondhand smoke at home may be more likely than their peers to have learning and behavioral problems, according to a new study.
Researchers found that of more than 55,000 U.S. children younger than 12 years, six percent lived with a smoker. And those kids were more likely to have attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, a learning disability or "conduct disorder" than children in smoke-free homes.
Read the whole thing. They admit their study is flawed and then cover a range of indirect possibilities as to how this might happen.
Never once do they consider that the same thing which causes smoking also causes ADHD.

These children have the same biological condition as their parents. And it's probably a strep infection.

Brain Eating Zombie of the Day

Should parents lose custody of super obese kids?
Dr. David Ludwig, an obesity specialist at Harvard-affiliated Children's Hospital Boston, says putting children temporarily in foster care is in some cases more ethical than obesity surgery. State intervention "ideally will support not just the child but the whole family, with the goal of reuniting child and family as soon as possible. That may require instruction on parenting," said Ludwig.

This man needs some antibiotic therapy. His self-righteousness is clearly pathological.

If doctors get this kind of authority, we're all doomed.

Mark the calendar

I am going to recommend a beverage other than coffee:

Stash Fusion Green-White Tea

It seems to neutralize and wash the bacteria away. Very nice.
My mouth/throat stops hurting after a couple cups.

You can put the teabags in your pocket. Handy.
Seems to be available everywhere too.

I have also been putting coconut oil in my coffee and tea. It melts and floats on top, but feels and tastes pretty good.

How to Not be Insane


I am beginning to think mouth and nasal ulcers are the most common form of untreated head infections. Coconut oil and omega-3 will prevent and heal them.

I have a whole list of captions for this pic-

  • I'm cleaning my brain.
  • What ENT's don't tell you...
Feel free to add your own.
