Addiction LXXX

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Think I’ll go to the office today. Haven’t been there since the Thursday before Christmas Eve. Haven’t even checked email from home since then.

Today those people would have be diagnosed with a variety of entities, the largest group falling into myalgic encephalomyelitis, formerly known as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Check back in 20 years they’ll be called something else.

Around here, many suffering patients with these symptoms are diagnosed with "Chronic Lyme Disease" and suffer needless extensive and unproven treatments by fringe practitioners. Lyme disease is real, of course, but what these folks have is NOT a chronic infection.

I saw many patients in a NIAID study of people diagnosed with “chronic Lyme disease” back in the 90s. A few had real things like MS. Many were wackos. All had scammy-ass, doctors.

Back then, I also reviewed a case of a young woman who was suing her former neurologist for diagnosing her with MS and missing her “chronic Lyme.” The sleazeball who diagnosed her with Lyme and treated her with all sorts of crap, claimed, in the medical record(!), to have confirmed the diagnosis with “borrelia cultures.” She had obvious MS and I told her lawyers they had the wrong defendant.

On the plus side, we got a little rain this morning, melting more snow.

This is what I was thinking about on my walk last eve. How people in 140 years, or maybe 30 years will look back at doctors and witch doctors diagnosing rheumatoid arthritis today the same way we look back at the medical quackery of the 1890s.

Meanwhile Velo Vol carries on as a medical guinea pig.

Have you heard of Bike Insights?

They've got a pretty cool comparison feature. The database is still growing but there's a decent amount of stuff in there already.

Funnily enough, someone had already added the exact frame as my Trek. One of the only vintage bikes in there and it just so happens to be a 1981 Trek 710

I ate to much the past couple of days. In the past I rarely would go over board and over eat, but this year I figured with all the training I have been doing why not.

I regret that decision. I feel yucky and sluggish.

That's pretty cool, thanks. I've been writing columns of numbers as I read them.

I ignore calls all the time when I don't recognize the number or origin, particularly those from obscure places. I just now got one from Frazeysburg, Ohio. I don't even know how to pronounce that.

I don't answer calls from out of state that are not in my contact list. Only person I know of in Winslow is a girl driving a flat bed Ford. Still didn't answer.

I’ll go weeks without receiving random calls. But once I get one, i’ll usually get another 5 or 6 in the same day. The weird part to me is, with the traveling I do I usually receive calls from the area codes that I will be in. So a couple weeks ago I was in Portland, Maine and I received about 3 calls while I was just in the airport.

My philosophy is, if they really want to speak to me they'll leave a message. If they just want to spam me, then rotts of ruck.
