Currently remembering the time I was hospitalized with noro and folks if there is ever a disease that should have convinced us to have paid sick leave, it is noro.
I guess the only reason it hasn't is because folks think they have food poisoning when really they have norovirus because some poor food service worker had to try to work in between projectile vomiting and diarrhea-ing so hard they aerosolized the fluid for extra contagion.
Yesterday's plans were interrupted by a migraine, so I will be reprising them today. 2 more hours of work and then I'm gonna scrub some dirty chairs.
This has nothing to do with Scott Alexander, who is "an intellectual laundromat for libertarianism," as a dear friend once described him.
health, ableism, biopsychosocial model
I wish people brought up the biopsychosocial model of disease as a reason to make sure children don't have adverse childhood experiences and we all can meet our material needs and live in connected communities and aren't destroyed by bad jobs instead of bringing it up as a way to tell people with illnesses provoked by such things that they're pitiful slackers who just need a disciplined workout schedule and a round of CBT.
