Moonwatcher - I get what you meant by the italics. I really like the image of waiting for a train and not knowing when it is due, but knowing it will come.
I also think we "stay at home people" have too much time to think and read!
For me, because I was "put through the ringer" by natural docs, the pendulum has swung the other way and now I turn my back on all that and focus on food exclusively. But not like that's OK either ... It's just that I think "what am I supposed to do about it all?"
If you don't mind my asking, what kind of ringers were you put through?
I know I tried to avoid all that by focusing exclusively on the diet right off the bat, but then again there might be something to some of it. How would I know? How much do they
even know? Etc. But so many things seem like snake oil, really expensive
snake oil, that I am wary. But occasionally intrigued.
I know what you mean about the constant state of worry about your health. I wasn't really that way for awhile, until recently, now that I am stressed about a lot of other things and not doing as well physically. And I guess I am more anxiously seeking answers lately, so the worry has increased. Chicken and egg, perhaps.

Looked at some really tiny cool art
And reminded myself of this:
