Involuntary Fasting

So, the one thing I really hate when I get sick is, well, being sick. And a week ago, I spent most of the evening stuck in the office because I was too busy emptying my stomach to actually get home.

A week later I am, at long last, pretty much back to usual, but not eating for four days was one of the more interesting experiences I’ve had in recent months. You function fine, and the hunger passes, but it really messes around with your mood and reasoning ability. I’m beginning to see why fasting is so common as part of spiritual experiences; it certainly shifts your perceptions of the world.

Anyway, I’m functional again, and should be posting again, too.

Be really, really glad I didn’t post anything while I was a touch “distracted”.
