Disease and the Public Eye

Disease and the Public Eye:

About how publicity (in the Habermasian sense, for nerds) affects illness. It’s true that when my issues lacked a name/lacked a clear diagnosis it was very frustrating because people want to know what you have so they know how to act. And obviously you want to know what you have. The author seems to think having a highly Googled disease gives you an empathy advantage—that the woman in line and the waiter would have acted differently if they knew what dystonia was—I’m not sure if that is true. It smells a bit like an “awareness campaign” to me.  But I do know that telling your story is always important.

showslow:

Mermaid is a sculpture created by Oliver Voss on Alster Lake in Hamburg on August 3rd, 2011.

alright, i’ll be that guy:

why is it called mermaid when she has legs?

It’s not called mermaid, the title in German is Die Badende, which translates to “The Bathing Woman” or “The Bather” (feminine).

(Mermaid in German is meerjungfrau, which is pretty awesome, “virgin of the sea.)
