Hello gentle reader,

In the words of Talking Heads "When I have nothing to say my lips are sealed"

Well, still nothing new here really except to say that watched this programme on BBC the other day. Much of it will be nothing new to a seasoned UC sufferer. However there is an interesting aspect of the gut which is that it shares some similarity with your brain.

I recommend it to you. Here's the link:


  1. Neuroscientist Antonio Damasio it was who alerted me to the idea that our digestive tracts generate basic emotions, from which develop more subtle feelings. How much more evidence do we need before we can accept that mind and body are one collection of communicating organisms, that there is no "mind/body problem," that our minds are what we call our individual, unique brains? We'd all live better, I think, if we lived these things.

    It was a good prog. Thanks Arkers.

  2. A curse or a prayer.
    A butcher or a priest.
    A conundrum of flesh.
    Mind and meat locked together.
    My gut could be my destiny.
    My muscle could be my mind.
    My meat could be my brain.
    I am a snake; I am a man.
    Unity an schism

    NOT a poem. Just some thoughts.

  3. tonight a programm talking about the gut brain and how neurotics and extroverts react differently to pain - it's to do with the gut brain.


I'm always interested to hear any thoughts or stories of your own. Please do comment.
