Since moving to Utah, our family has been sick constantly. When I say constantly, I mean more days sick than well. I mean at least 1-2 emergency room visits per month, a baby in the NICU, and everyone other than the baby contracting a parasite typically only contracted in third world countries...from our tap water. I could go on and on about the upper respiratory infections and migraines and what not, but my topic is actually the psychological effect it's had on the kids. They've gotten to the point that if someone mentions a symptom near them, they start to develop it. They just take for granted that they will catch everything they come in contact with here, that they develop psychosomatic symptoms of even illnesses it's impossible to catch. Liam suffers from back aches whenever he's around a menstruating woman. Cora is coming down with something whenever Flynn is teething.
Today, Jason suggested we test just how strong their minds are. Starting next week, we're going to start a series of experiments. We're going to choose an illness it's completely unrealistic to have, and start complaining of or otherwise implying we have the symptoms. Let's see how outrageous we can get.
So my requests to you are;
1) don't tell Liam and Cora. They won't read my blog if they aren't tagged, and it isn't shared with any circles they're in on g+.
2) suggestions. What shall we see if they can contract by imagination alone?
