I just left the following as a comment on another LJ User's page (you know who you are). I decided that I liked it enough that I wanted to save it on my own page for future reference."While I know my body is not my enemy, I find it useful to think of my relationship with it as an adversarial friendship. I don't particularly like or want it to do the things it sometimes does, but frequently my reactions to those moments or stimuli are necessary.
I sometimes wish Jonathan Coulton's "The Future Soon" would come true and the things that make me weak and strange would get engineered away, but that ain't happening. So, I make do the best I can. :-)"
