This @clinicaltrialsbot is making me glad I only participated in one clinical trial and that it did not kill me.

Audre Lorde, revolutionary change, oppression Show more
“The true focus of revolutionary change is never merely the oppressive situation that we seek to escape but that piece of the oppressor which is planted deep within each of us.”
This. Is. So. Important.
Goodnight friends! Weather at least was v. consistent today, sky smooth unblemished grey as flat & featureless as a fogbank. Trees looked black & uncanny—something about the thick atmosphere made them new & weird, my awe tinged with a vague menace.
A few brief intoxicating bursts of energy—drawing again at last—between long drowsy lethargies. Feeling a raspy tickle in the back of my throat, nervously hoping I haven't caught @Damage 's cold!
May we give each other comfort today!

this episode is so offensive
Goodnight friends! Speaking the pattern seemed to dispell it, for today at least. Clouds were diaphanous softly edgeless washes of mist, leaving the air dry & ever so pale blue. Diffuse gold light made soft, long grey-blue shadows for the long moment of morning & stained the treetops a hot burnished copper.
Feeling exessively drained by cold for the first few hours of the day, concentration all scattered.
May we dare to explore our unconventional passions & playful selves without shame today!
Food Show more
Baked eggs are such a nice winter breakfast. Reasons:
1) Turning oven on heats up house in the chilly mornings
2) uses leftovers and cheese ends up
3) warm and filling
4) I make them in a tiny red baking dish that is very cheerful and festive
5) take exactly the amount of time to cook as my physio exercises take to do, so by the time I sit down to eat, exercises are done
6) 2 min or less of active food prep time
7) seems fancy. I like being fancy.
Baked eggs = a good breakfast
In her paper Only You, Your Doctor, and Many Others May Know Sweeney says that her research was unwelcome. Over 20 journals turned down her paper on the Weld study, and nobody wanted to fund privacy research that might reach uncomfortable conclusions. https://www.johndcook.com/blog/2018/12/07/no-funding-for-unwanted-news/
"There’s small elite, bankrolled by really rich people. They push austerity onto the public. The public supports progressive goals, and hates the elite. Those aren’t two “tribes,”...There’s a ruling class. They like each other. They don’t like you. That’s the history behind every Bush and Michelle Obama picture... Privilege looks into a mirror, and calls the sight beautiful."
“It’s been weeks since we’ve acted silly. Is this growing up? Less silliness? Maybe I’m already grown, even though my body’s small. All I know is, I’m more grown than my parents and teachers think I am. What I feel and what I know and my body don’t match.”
