The Iron Temple

The body is called a temple? It's said sometimes, but it's not correct for everyone.

For whatever reason, children with highly developed analytical and intellectual skills in the West usually don't gravitate towards more physical, strenuous, and intense activities. There's exceptions -- plenty -- but generally speaking, people who have extreme analytical mental ability tend to neglect their physical ability.

But then the body, a supposed temple, becomes a prison for the mind, dragging its possessor down into low energy, poor moods, and various aches and ailments and pains.

No, the body isn't a temple. The real temple is a place you like to engage in activities to be active and move and have your blood move and activate your muscles and get into motion.

And to succeed at that, especially if you're very analytical, you need to get your mind involved. Whether that be a competitive sport, or a set of exercises that you work towards constant form, or whether it's a game of increasing strength of flexibility or performance... regardless of the particular details, engaging the mind and body together becomes crucial for keeping your mind free and alive.

My drugs is hard.

Wellbutrin hived me up immediately, but that may have been related to my sushi habit.

Seroquel made me feel numb and fuzzy. And after a while it stopped affecting my depression anyways.

Lexapro, well, that was my fault for not taking it right. But actually that was one of the more awesome experiences.

More drugs is worse. The less drugs, the better. When things go bad, the response should be to lower the dose, not up it. So I am just going to relax on the damn Prozac.
