About ME/CFS


Introduction:

This is the second normal Nederlog since 2 days, and it will be a brief one.

The reason it will be a brief one is that today I made the first fairly long walk since I fell ill, except for going to the optometric doctor in July, after which things got worse - until they turned around early November, since when I have been slowly improving.

Anyway - here is some on a good site on philosophy; on my ME/CFS; and on a site with a good book about logic.

1. A good site on philosophy

The
re are good sites on philosophy, but almost always either they are given to the work of one or two philosophers or they are about quite a few philosophers, and either have nothing else, or only a bit about a few of the many.

The following is somewhat of an exception:
It is by Jud Evans, and if you think it is small, then you should check out these items (on the right hand side):
The reason this is likeable, among other things, is that Jud Evans is not an academic, which presumably is also the reason why he is not in Wikipedia.

In any case, you'll find a great lot of philosophy here, and also, though not listed in this Nederlog, quite a few essays of his own on philosophical subjects.


2. My ME/CFS and the mB12 protocol

As I said the last time, I have taken up my protocol again. Here it is, not quite as it was, but with a few minor changes at the end:

And as I also said, the difference is not large. I do feel better, since I can walk again, and am troubled less, e.g. by failing feet: Disappeared.

Here are some bits of advice: In case this does not help over 2 months, there is no point in using it. And in case it does help: The first four are the most important. Finally, in case this does help, but then starts to fall apart again: Increase your
Potassium.

3. A good site about logic

I wrote about it before, but I was informed that meanwhile the site has been extended quite a lot, and is free. Here is the link:
Note this will not explain logic to you: It gives over a hundred people known as logicians, from Ancient Greece till now, each with one page, one or more pictures, one or a few selections, and a list of their basic texts plus at least one link to more material about the man.

So... all in all, while this is a brief Nederlog, it gives you a lot of material.
