NLD’s Constant Challenge

January 23, 2010

Human social connections are constant. Thus, NLD is constantly challenging. I would like to study whether people with NLD have a greater likelihood of accompanying physical difficulties. I recently had the flu, and had a slow recovery, plus very drawn-out symptoms. I don’t have the flu anymore, but yesterday mistakenly had more milk products than I could well-tolerate (it’s best if I don’t have any or just a couple bites) and ended up throwing up. This happened after I got off the bus, which I fell asleep on, perhaps to avoid feeling motion sick. Every time I go through a nausea spell, the thought of many foods makes my stomach hurt. I think NLD may increase the likelihood of feeling motion sick. It makes sense, since we have altered perception of the visual-spatial realm.
