Today's Aliments

Today I am suffering from general malaise, which could be caused by any number of things. Sometimes general malaise (as well as fatigue and insomnia) can stem from unresolved dental issues. Some other things it can stem from"

  • Emotional problems (of course)
  • Stress (certainly)
  • Fatigue (yes)
  • Depression (no)
  • Depressive disorders (no)
  • Poor diet (my diet has been mediocre this week but not wretched)
  • Inadequate sleep (certainly a factor)
  • Illness (maybe)
  • Virus (maybe)
  • Chronic sinusitis (kind of)
  • Toothache (I do not have a toothache)
  • Anemia (NO!)
  • Hypothyroidism (I was tested for this once and do not have it)
  • Certain heart disorders (No, no, no)
  • Certain lung disorders (Does asthma count?)
  • Certain abdominal disorders (Nope)
  • Intestinal disorders (Yuck)
  • Certain urinary disorders (Ick)
  • Urinary tract infection (YuckIck)
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (AH!)
  • Prostate disorders (Certainly not)
  • Almost any possible condition - Almost every illness makes people feel unwell. (Are there any illnesses that make people feel well? Mania?)

The way to cure general malaise is apparantly through "tonics," "vitamin preparations," and "stimulants." What kind of stimulants? One of my students brought some kola nuts to class....
