This does not make me feel better
The stomach issues have improved, but a bout of depression threatens to bring them back. I have to be extraordinarily careful about how and when and what I eat (which excludes whole grains, sugar, dairy, raw veggies, coffee, non-herbal tea, and just about everything else I normally consume).
On this beautiful Sunday, Richard is going to a Palestinian rally. I will not be attending, because while I'm sympathetic to Palestinians and disapprove of some Israeli actions against them, I am not anti-Israel. Nor am I anti-Palestine. To be at a rally for either side would be an exercise in frustration for me.
What I would like to do today is go to comic book shops and browse through anime DVDs. Does that make me a total asshole? Eschewing noble, important causes for...um...weird Japanese entertainment? I suppose it does.
