Why ‘trust’ is a bad word

and its use is always followed by a question.

Do you ever have this feeling, ‘I really want to break something?’

I do.

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..?
