University of Minnesota Medical School Class to Relax

I am sitting in an immunology class in the University of Minnesota Medical School now to relax and try to learn about my body.  I care deeply about figuring out the right way to treat my bipolar disorder I.  I am trying a new medication for the disease called Depakote and Latuda.  It is a new medication regime and feel better now that I am taking it.  These medical students seem not very smart.  I see many of them on Facebook and YouTube watching music videos.  Some people are watching and taking their class seriously.  I remember being in their shoes trying, but I recall asking hard questions about the biology.  They are looking at anemia.  You have to know how to look at a histogram.  Scatter plots are not on the test.  Doctors do not know much about statistics it seems.  How do they do psychiatry then in their studies?  I love my job, I am trying to work out my disease and am healing.  This classroom is the meeting for the postdoctoral association, that is why I am here.  The meeting is from 12:30 pm to 2 pm.  I look forward to it.  I believe in civil rights for the mentally ill.  I demand respect as a postdoctoral associate.  The NIH hates me it seems and discriminates against me.  My hope is to leave the system behind in the space of activism.  I love peace and hate the idea that the corporations control this medication regime, but I will submit to it for now to stabilize.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
