i slept well enough but there were many dreams in which i did not sleep well.

the body is working very hard to produce antibodies for 23 different bacteria. constituents of their outer coating were injected into my arm yesterday at no cost to myself or the health insurance company. i did ask if they could inject just the constituent of the outer coating of one of the bacteria and i’d come back for the other 22 later, even though i knew what the answer would be, but as they say, it doesn’t hurt to ask, and it definitely hurts the body to inject the constituents of the outer coating of 23 different bacteria into it all at the same time.

not that i am at all woo woo about vaccinations, it’s just that the health system, such as it is, is about two things which are only reconcilable in the imaginations of adherents of a mirage called free market capitalism, namely managing costs and making profits. it is about the individual’s health only to the extent that they don’t want to avoid have to give people expensive treatments, so for example, they give as many people as possible statins, not because they don’t want you to die but because it means 1% fewer people will require expensive heart bypass operations.

. they also wanted to inject me with flu vaccin at the same time, and if it wasn’t so complex to store and manage corona vaccinations
