Logic Anybody?  
Is it just me or does there seem to be a lack of people using logic in the world today?  For example, let's say I see a cloud and I say, "Wow, look at that cool cloud, it looks like it's about to storm."  Somebody will reply, "Why do you hate rain?  I bet you hate trees too?  Just move to the city then."

It seems more and more, people are making outrageous leaps like that.  Now, when I was a kid I had to take Geometry in school that was supposed to teach logic using those long proofs.  Is that even a requirement anymore?

Couldn't agree more about the lack of logic.

Case in point, people who stop dead at the top or bottom of a set of stairs. They think no one's going to need to use the stairs while they're there and they wonder why they're getting bumped into. I really wonder about them.

Or those who stop right in the flow of foot traffic. I see that a lot when I go to Mariners game. They'll stop right where they are, causing people to run into them while they look at their tickets and the signs in blank confusion. I feel like telling them to be confused at the side of the walkway, not in the middle.

I'm afraid it's a worldwide epidemic these days and spreading fast. Last time I checked geometry was still a requirement.

Maybe the proofs aren't as hard as they once were. I'm just getting tired of people jumping to the strangest conclusions about things.

Don't I know it. How's your daughter doing? Better I hope.

We go back on Thursday. So far everything is exactly the same. I'm still leaning toward emotional stress.

Man I was really hoping that had resolved itself. Hopefully you can get some real answers and a solution thursday.

I hope a solution is coming soon. You know how hard it is when a child of yours is in pain.

I do have to say, knowing all the stuff you have to deal with, I'm touched that you are concerned about my daughter. *hugs*

I do too and I know exactly what you mean.

I've had you and your family,especially your daughter in my prayers hoping to hear that she's finally feeling better. Soon hopefully.

"hugs"

Good news! The doc found a medication that actually works. It's an old anti-depressant med, but it's not used for that anymore. She started taking it and the symptoms went away that night. I'm hoping that she can eventually get off it, but right now we are looking at getting her back to a normal weight.

Thats wonderful! So happy to hear they finally found something. Maybe now you can both get some rest:)
