We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Absolutely! I started 30 years ago, primarily because like most young men I thought I'd look monstrous. Ha! Never happened, but who cares? It's been a constant aid to my emotional health. I'm happy you posted this study, but it's not news to me. :).
My daughter was on a lot of antidepressants...some of which were contraindicated. She nearly OD'd and was committed for a few weeks involuntarily. She had been misdiagosed with bipolar disorder, and decided to go off all her meds cold turkey when she got home. She was well over 220 lbs at 5'1". She went on a ketogenic diet as well and lost 75 lbs. Diet and weights did that for her.
