My body is revolting. Hey, stop that. That’s not what I meant at all. It’s not funny!

While your physical health isn’t always perfect, you don’t freak out about it. You know there’s only so much you can do, and worrying doesn’t change anything. Your mental health is in check… which is key to having tip top physical health. There’s no way you’re worrying yourself to death!
As I was trying to say, my system is revolting against me and has been these past few days. I’ve had constipation and diarrhoea on and off, sometimes at the same time which is just unfair. Waves of nausea keep hitting me, usually at mealtimes which is again unfair. I’ve also been experiencing a lot of lower back pain. The whole thing has pretty much left me wiped out (in more ways than one) these past couple of days.
That’s the funny thing about pain. I’m in almost constant pain due to a back injury from years ago but because it’s constant that has become my normal state and, if it stopped I’d probably feel worse before realising I was better. Unfortunately it takes a lot of concentration and effort to control this amount of pain, something that has become second nature and not really a conscious act. This means that I can lead a pretty normal life but, when I’m hit with other pains if they’re large enough they divert my energies and every pain comes back as if new again, including my old back injury. Bit of a bastard really.
Anyway I’m mostly over what’s been affecting me these past few days and the pain is starting to subside. I managed to enjoy a perfectly cooked roast chicken dinner earlier and that’s what this post is really about. In between munching succulent chicken skin soaked in delicious gravy, I remembered the thing that made me realise that genetically engineering animals is a good thing for the future. It was the image of a chicken with six legs. For all my talk of growing replacement transplant parts on the recipient, all I really want is a chicken with extra legs. Embarrassing eh? You guys ever realise the reasons behind your standards and morals are a little more self-centred than you thought?
