calypso Posted April 8, 2006 Report Share Posted April 8, 2006 Below is a link to Jane Brody's column from earlier this week that runs in the New York Times. She was writing about a woman who did a Broadway play called "Well." She talks about how just because a physiological cause isn't found for illness, that doesn't mean the symptoms should be dismissed. And she points out that there's this brand of thinking that says if you are optimistic and take good care of yourself, you won't have health problems. We all know this is not true. But she sympathizes with those who have families and friends telling them they must not be trying hard enough to not be sick.It reminded me of a recent post by Stacey Yount about her family saying she doesn't do more because she doesn't try.Anyway, thought I'd share. You do have to sign into NYTimes.com, but it's free and I would highly recommend it. They also will send you headlines each morning tailored to the subjects you like -- i.e., all health stories, or food stories.http://www.nytimes.com/2006/04/04/health/04brod.htmlAmy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
