    River, what did you do today (outside of anything internet related)? Just curious?

    What are some of your hobbies? What country do you live in? I live in the U.S. (I hike, play guitar, read).

    Sorry to hear that. What does chiropractic mean? You have to go to a chiropractor frequently? Are you not able to work?

    That explains a lot.

    You need time to heal body and mind alike.

    Are you of retirement age? Were you in an auto accident? What is your education level? I have a MBA for instance but most of the science I've learned has been since my school days. I'm just curious to understand more about your situation.

    Chiropractic means adjusting your spine . So far three days a week . For now .

    I don't work . My shoulder is strained as well . I'm 61 . I am tired of being weak .

    Self taught . I , I think , fell through the cracks of life . As many have .

    Makes life a tough go . But you know that's the way it goes .

    I have over 500 hundred books .

    Is this as a result of something that has happened recently? Your physical situation I mean.

    I think most intelligent people continue learning so formal education doesn't have to be a limiting factor, I agree.

    That is the hard part , when did this all start ?

    It was back in my teens I think . It makes sense . When I think about it .

    Wow, that was a long time ago. Were you ever able to work?

    Sometimes I think that the lack of formal education was a good thing . It allowed me to question ideas that are held fast by the mainstream .

    But I would have liked to have been a Neurologist , for the challenge of the puzzle of understanding neurological diseases and an Architect for creativity .

    I have always worked from my early teens

    It's just that the culmination of time makes injuries more obvious .

    Most architects are either out of work, barely self-employed or designing the city humane society kennels or something similar.

    A neuroscientist would be interesting.

    It's good to question science but it's best to understand it first, IMO.

    I get that. I'm roughly the same age. I'm certainly more beat up now than when I was younger. I'm afraid to stop moving or I might not be able to one day.
