A million years ago I contributed to a now-defunct blog called The Secret Society of List Addicts. This post originally appeared there.
I guess I’m just not sure when therapy (or anything health-related) is necessary. Do I book a massage when I wake up three mornings in a row with a crick in my neck? What about after five mornings in a row? I’m pretty sure it’s normal to get the occasional zit when you’re 33. Or it’s not? Should I go to a dermatologist? Just like Everybody Ever, I have occasional moments of “What does it all meaaaaaaaannnnnn?” But does that mean I should go to therapy? Or does that just mean I’m a self-actualized adult?2. Getting a bra fitting
Didn’t Oprah tell us that something like 125% of women are wearing the wrong size bra? And aren’t we all sure that we’re the one woman in America who’s wearing the right size? I feel like I’m wearing the right bra size – my cup does not runneth over. But again, what if I just don’t know what I’m missing?
Allegedly, skydiving can trigger a bit of puking for those of us who are prone to motion sickness (and I am a competition level puker) but everybody I know who’s done it says it’s fantastic. Fantastic enough to make up for two days of barfing? I think I might actually want to find out!
4. Finding religion
Ummm. I don’t know about this one. I know two people who are actively engaged in their churches and it really does seem to bring them a lot of peace. But I’m not sure it’s my bag. The closest I get is a bit of Universal Unitarianism. Or as I like to call it – the non-church.
5. Giving up gluten/dairy
Yes, I’ve heard of The China Study. And I know several people who swear that once they gave up gluten and/or dairy their skin cleared up, they slept better, they had more energy, and they began to levitate with joy. But my skin is pretty clear, I sleep pretty well, and I have a pretty decent amount of energy. More importantly? I JUST LOVE CARBS SO MUCH, YOU GUYS.
What are your friends recommending that you try? And are you going to do it? And more importantly, has your life been changed by any of the above?
