There are days I can't get out of bed so I am eating a slice of definitely not artisanal pizza with a plate balancing on my weighted blanket. There are days when my executives are very dysfunctional and I set my dinner on fire because I am easily distracted. There are days when everything grosses me out except pancakes and I eat that for three days in a row.
What I have learned to untangle from medicine is an obsession with binary thinking around ethics, health, and what is good.
