and its use is always followed by a question.
Do you ever have this feeling, ‘I really want to break something?’
It’s not healthy but you breathe and taichi your problem thinking, ‘No, keep calm and carry on.’
That is a bad idea.
Today I noticed a dip in my mental faculties.
Not that I am any more sick than I was yesterday, but that today I’m at home.
But can I say objectively that I am the same amount of sick as yesterday?
I remember our lit teacher saying something about sensory data and the KI students groaning but if I take the words literally, and that data my brain computes from its own senses, I would say ‘I think…’
I can’t really ‘notice’ anything, can I?
And since I’m sick, I can’t trust my own senses either.
So the question that follows the use of the word ‘trust’ is, “Really?”
If you have the time, play a little game: Trust
When you’re sick, you’re supposed to eat comfort food and stuff.
It’s oriental medicine that says to avoid heaty foods like oily and fatty foods – imagine how surprised I was when the day before I was offered cake.
So is it a self-confirming bias/view/thing that I ate brownies and chips yesterday and woke up today struggling to breathe with a hacking cough?
Maybe the link I’ve made is a fallacy – I tried to identify some for the GP AQ homework but I didn’t find any.
Now my ear is blocked and I’m not going to go out of the house in case I don’t hear a car and get run over.
That’s over-dramatisation, but when you’re sick, you shouldn’t be going out of the house.
Doesn’t matter, I’m going to school. I don’t know if I want to, but I’m going to go school tomorrow and submit the work everyone else submitted today.
Maybe I’m just weak. Why did I stay home today?
Thursdays used to be my favourite day.
I can’t bring myself to write about what I wanted to write about. It’s like the words are stuck in my fingers.
Will ignoring the problem make it go away?
No, I don’t think so.
Does that mean I must make
a different choice..?
