Medical and medication disclaimer

Copy/paste for reference from brightlotusmoon (who used to be rosefox8):

Disclaimer: My body is not your body. My brain is not your brain. My medical issues probably differ from your medical issues. My sensitivities and reactions to medicines whether pharmaceutical, non-traditional, herbal, supplemental, or nutritional may differ from your sensitivities and reactions. Do not insist that you can cure me. Do not tell me that any of the medicines I take are wrong, fake, or bad. Understand that when I talk about non-pharmaceutical treatments, I am talking about them from my personal perspective and I am not trying to push those treatments on you. If you cannot respect any part of this disclaimer, please refrain from commenting.

I have asked for (and received) permission to plagiarise/reuse this and am putting it here for now while I think about where to post it and whether/how to edit/adapt it. I think I may end up with it as a text file on my website that I can then link to using TextExpander, like I do for the following: *hugs*

Writer's Block: Better than leftovers

If you had to eat the same thing for dinner every night for the next year, what would you choose?

I would quite happily eat the same thing every day for a year for each meal, i.e. have the same breakfast every day, same lunch every day and same dinner every day with the same between-meal snacks every day as long as:

  1. They made up a well balanced diet overall. Maybe over each meal/snack but definitely over each day.

  2. Hubby and I did not have to prepare them and/or they could be bought pre-prepared or delivered to the door ready cooked á la "Meals on Wheels".

  3. There was some variance in vegetables and fruit so that "in season" items were used.

  4. The meals can be prepared taking into account food intolerances and medications.

I never get bored eating the same food over and over again. If I like something, I will like it tomorrow. Having a pretty short attention span and awful short term memory will also make this easy for me. I almost always have the same breakfast and "evening" (middle of the night) meal every day, as it is. Hey, if I could get all of my sustenance by taking pills or drinking some nice tasting liquid like in so many 70s and 80s science fiction stories, I would, as long as I could also occasionally have yummy snacks to keep my taste buds happy.

Which reminds me, at 5 am it is probably time for that "evening" meal!
