Medical stuff

Good story in the New York Times today " Financial Ties are Cited as Issue in Spine Study"
About doctors who have investments in medical companies and also do research for them.
Also mentions how negative clinical trials are suppressed, or altered to give them a positive spin .

Learned about "Alexithymia" : the inability to express emotions with words. I read a research abstract about it and it's relation to fatigue in MS. I suppose when you are fatigued in that unique MS way it might be difficult to express what you're feeling. For me it's the opposite. I express my emotions too much .
Dis inhibition: Yeah that's me. Get too angry , too sad, and other things I'm embarrassed to mention even in my own blog . Imagine that .
