Laughing Wolf has posted what appears to be a comprehensive and all-inclusive (or should that be all-exclusive?) disclaimer.
While I certainly admire LW's style, I personally favor short and simple disclaimers. Back in my days of posting to Usenet from a company account, I used this one: The author is insane. Any opinions are those of Great Cthulhu.
With all my kvetching about my recent illnesses and injuries... Stephen Green has had a much worse time, in the same few months. Like, at our respective worst points, his weight was just about half mine... and (a) he's two inches taller, and (b) I wasn't exactly spherical.
The good news is, his condition is treatable. The bad news is, it's a lifetime of treatment. (My problems can most likely be managed, in the long run, with minor lifestyle adjustments.)
I was going to complain about having developed sore muscles on today's piddly 7-mile hike with moderate hills. Compared to someone who's struggling to do one pushup... hey, I don't have it so bad.
